    New Stig is born and teaching new people to drive in reasonably priced cars.



    The laps are faster but it's also a new car.



    So, me and my brother have been wondering if any of you car/racing experts are able to tell if the New Stig is actually a faster driver than old stig?



    I notice their driving style is different, New Stig slides more, but I couldn't say if that makes for faster laps or not?

    Ben Collins who was the last Stig was on Top Gear as himself one time. Now the new Clarkson DVD has racing driver Karun Chandhok guest starring, could he be the new stig? I wouldn't be surprised.

    Ben Collins was on several times: he played in the first car football game, he raced a 'youth' down a hill, in Wales, in a Bowler and drove the car into which a parachutist tried to land.



    Those are off the top of my head, there may be more...
