    *sorry* I didn't know who Ben Collins was so I looked him up on wikipedia (I know, I know, not the most reliable source), but it says that he has been 'outed' as the Stig, although not confirmed.

    I think there have only been two Stigs. The first one everyone knew was Perry McCarthy and I don't think many people know who the second one is

    His ears have a "Paisley lining" and they are "not exactly where you would expect them to be".

    The Stig is Ben Collins, in Richard Hammond's crash report (HSE) he mentions his name in the report and says hes top gears high performance driver and consultant, i think this is good enough proof, i don't think Health and Safety reports are allowed to lie lol.

    I have to agree that I do think that it is Ben Collins but don't forget that it has been floated around that the Stig is in fact, several different people. This is when Ben Collins has been busy. At one time, there was speculation that Damon Hill was a relief driver for Ben Collins.
