how do we know if thats the "REAL" stig hmmmm

prolly just some dude wearing his outfit. i would know. ive met the real stig. and he's ALOT shorter. and he's kinda mean and stuck up. all he talked to me about was how good a driver he is and how he gets all the ladies. and how he can get any car he wants and how rich he is. than when i asked him for a autograph, he laughed at me. slapped me. and walked off into the distance...

He's not the real Stig. If you watched the episode they also did a test of the Ferrari FXX which Ferrari doesn't let just anyone drive. Coincidence, I think not.

I also think I'm in love with that Lotus. All it needs is a supercharger slapped on the Camry engine and then it will be complete. Too bad there is probably no space for it.

The FXX used was actually Schumis own car, so not really surprising that he drove it.

I think everyone knew the real stig for quite a while now. He accidentally disclosed being the stig. This was a good ratings booster though.

Some say they've met the Stig,

Some say the Stig wanted to photograph penguins,

All we know is...they've never met the Stig.

Does the FXX time stand up to the sleeping policeman test? To be on the board the car has to be able to traverse speed bumps, and as this car is meant for the track (as stated in the show) and the LARGE time disparity, I was just wondering about that detail.
