Over the past couple of days, it has been reported that Top Gear’s mystery driver, The Stig, is none other than Ben Collins, Graham Hill (who passed away in 1975) and the 44th President of the United States Barack Obama himself.
Continuing the massive confusion and speculation, the Daily Mail now claims that The Stig is actually played by a total of eight different drivers. The list includes 27-year old F1 driver Heikki Kovalainen, former GT world championship racing driver Chris Goodwin and Julian Bailey, a 47-year old former Tyrell and Lotus F1 driver from London.
Other ‘Stigs’ include Terry Grant from Hertfordshire, Russ Swift and Dan Lang – a Swedish snowmobile racing champion.
Daily Mail says that it received this information from the eighth Stig, who they identified only as Will. He was the main that appeared at the National Television Awards last year.
