Now that everyone knows that the Stig is none other than Ben Collins, James May says that the popular Top Gear character “will be viciously killed off – then replaced by a new driver.” Things might even go so far as to Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson beating the Stig first. James has vowed to take back the famous white overalls, helmet and gloves.
James said that the ‘white’ Stig will be killed off in the same manner as his predecessor. The ‘black’ Stig, who was played by racing driver Perry McCarthy, was last seen driving off a cliff in 2003.
So who will be the next Stig? Bookies have made a girl 4/1 favorite to take over the role of the Stig, ahead of ex-Formula 1 stars like Damon Hill and David Coulthard. Some bookies are also betting on odds of 5/1 that the next Stig suit is pink.
We’ll have to wait and see.
