The BBC is pulling out all the stops to keep the identity of the famed Stig from Top Gear a secret. The Stig’s memoirs are being blocked by the network on the grounds that it would ruin the iconic character and show.
The Stig is rumored to be one of several professional racecar drivers, but his identity has never truly been revealed. The Stig’s memoirs are an attempt by the Stig to make some money off of the character he/she plays. Only time will tell how this all plays out. One thing is for sure though, I’ll be first in line if that book ever does come out.
