Is this the Stig?

I dont know if u guys already know, but i just seen this?????



Perry McCarthy on life as 'The Stig!'

He's raced in Formula One, competed in the legendary Le Mans 24 hours and battled for honours at Sebring, but in the career of Perry McCarthy – dubbed by some as 'the world's unluckiest driver' – one thing must surely stand head and shoulders above the rest.

And that thing? Taking on the role of the mysterious 'Stig' on popular British motoring show Top Gear.

Crash.net took the chance to catch up with Perry recently, to talk about life as the 'Stig' and find out just how easy it is trying to teach a celebrity to become a race driver…

Crash.net:
Perry, alongside your long career in motorsport, you had another famous role as 'The Stig' on Top Gear - I just wondered what it was like to have that role.
