It's a sad day for fans of Top Gear as infamous helmeted racing driver The Stig has been outed. Some call him a demon on wheels, all we know is he is called… Ben Collins. It's sort of a letdown to know that The Stig isn’t a F1 champion.

I had always figured the Stig was nothing but a series of guest drivers and for the sake of continuity The Stig disguise was used. Still Collins was outed as Stig recently and you have to wonder if his days as The Stig are numbered.

According to DailyMail, former Stig Perry McCarthy was fired from the deck of a warship after making his alter ego known. Mr. Collins may find he is no longer The Stig for the next season of the show.
