BBC threatens legal action against The Stig over proposed autobiography

The Stig

Some say that he wants to write an autobiography on his life, some say that BBC has threatened to take legal action if he does – all we know is he’s called The Stig and is one of the best out on the track and we would love to read an autobiography by him.

According to the Guardian, BBC has threatened to take legal action against the anonymous driver to prevent him from publishing an autobiography. The Stig wants to write a book about his life but BBC is opposing the move because it would mean him being unmasked.

Lawyers at BBC say that The Stig is contractually obligated to keeping his identity under the wraps. Lawyers said that the proposed autobiography breaches “agreed contractual and confidentiality obligations” relating to the program.
