OK, so I realise that this story is like four days old now but it was one of the news highlights of my week. And sharing it on my Facebook profile was just not enough.
The Times Online commented:
The disclosure of the Stig’s identity came after an internet hunt by fans of the programme. One clip posted on YouTube shows the Stig talking with a Bristol accent to a television crew, before cutting to a clip showing Collins speaking in similar tones.
Regardless, at least we all now know for sure that he isn’t Damon Hill (like anyone actually thought it in the first place).
