Former Formula Three driver and owner of Collins Autosport, Ben Collins, has been reported to be one of the many individuals that pose as The Stig on BBC’s Top Gear program. His company Collins Autosport made significantly more money after taking on work to provide” driving services for BBC, mainly on Top Gear in 2003, according to Sunday Times.
It is reported that the increased revenue for Collins Autosport came just a month after the first appearance of The Stig in a white suit. Prior to that, The Stig dressed in black.
Sunday Times contacted Collins, 35, many times about his connection to Top Gear and The Stig. He answered the phone to the latest question on Saturday but said that he was in Hungary.
“I can’t speak to you. I’m going into a tunnel” Collins said. Very classy.
