At first Top Gear tried to pass off Michael Schumacher as the Stig, but that was quickly written off as a joke. NOW the real Stig has been revealed through a book. If you don't want to know the real Stig's identity, then don't click the link
The Stig's ID is 'Top Gear' secret no more - Yahoo! News
Now that the real Stig's ID is out of the bag, i feel...well disappointed actually.
The major basis of the Stig's popularity was the mystery behind the helmet. Now that he's taken off the helmet it defeats the 7 years of fun and mystery while driving around Top Gear. It's a shame that all that hard work is probably going to come to an end. Now the next question...how are they going to kill him off?
