Well, according to a British friend...

Top Gear has been on television for a long time in the U.K. The cast originally had a test driver that was an ex-race driver (name escapes me at the moment) that reported on cars he drove honestly and clashed with auto companies that didn't like their vehicles called rubbish (Land Rover, for example).
He was fired from the show and went on to start "Fifth Gear" where the topics and reviews were more serious and geared toward the enthusiast.

Top Gear kept the identity of their driver a secret, and though not meant to, the intrigue behind the hidden identity of the driver created quite a lot of positive publicity.

or so I'm told...

The word is, though, that its not necessarily the normal stig, and that Ferrari wouldn't let anyone else drive the FXX. He works as an advisor for Ferrari...


God damn that was a fast lap. One of my favorites, next to the Super 7 they did not too long back.


Besides, I have a T-shirt that says I am the Stig. So it can't be Kelly...its not like they drive those laps with a block of wood under the pedal.

Days of Thunder, when they were racing those cars around town on the way to dinner, you could tell Cole Trickle is the real STIG.

Heard also that's been pulled off the board, as it was on slicks, not streets... Same with how the Caparo was pulled off the board. I think the Caparo was a touch faster than the FXX...

apparently the black fxx that ran the power lap is Micheal Schumacher's car. Ferrari would not allow anyone else but the owner of the car to drive it around the circuit due to the special program that is for the FXX. sweet ass car though.

also they later will take down the lap time since the FXX was using slick tires and not "street" tires so the lap does not count. regardless that was wicked fast

edit: whoops someone else basically said the same thing lol
