This is from Wikipedia :

"The identity of the first Stig was revealed to be Perry McCarthy when his book Flat Out, Flat Broke was published in 2003. McCarthy is a former Formula 1 driver and test driver for the Benetton, Arrows and Williams teams, and also tested for BMW F1.[2]

The identity of the new Stig has not been officially revealed. In a Winter Olympics special episode of Top Gear, the Stig was shown doing a ski jump using a snowmobile. According to the Swedish tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet, the driver performing the ski jump stunt was Dan Lang, a Swedish snowmobile cross driver.[10] In January 2006, a Daily Express article reported that Julian Bailey was secretly the Stig.[11] In January 2007, Russ Swift, a stunt driver that has appeared on the show a number of times, said in an interview that the Stig is not played by just one person."

Thanks for that link Simon.

Last nights show was very good. Loved it when Hamster drove the F1 car. It was great 'cos it felt like a regular guy (ie not the Stig) driving an F1 car and stalling it (or making the ecu think he's stalling it!!). I loved the way he was locking up the wheels on braking, he was driving it but not driving it. From all the vids and dvds (autocar did one) regular drivers all say its the thinking difference thats the big deal.

I love the sound of those V10's much nicer than the v8's they are running at the moment. I'm going to race of Champions in a few weeks I hope they are gonna have some F1 cars there!!

The current Stig is Ben Collins: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Collins_%28driver%29

And the old stig was Perry McCarthy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flat_Ou...he_Hard_Way%21

Your can see both of them in the flesh in the TV program Vroom Vroom.

Also, you can see the stig in the flesh on the Top Gear episode where they have a football match with the small cars. He is one of the drivers that gets selected.
