The name came from Clarkson and Top Gear producer Andy Wilman, who both attended the public school Repton where a ‘stig’ was the nickname given to all new boys.

I don't recall watching the show
But now i know he was fired & his own company is going bankrupt

who doesn't know who the stig is...

Anyone see the episode where they come to America and have the American (fat) stig race around the track? Insulting but hilarious

This is the one where the redneck hillbilly inbreads chase after them because of the writing on there cars!

Your right it was Hilarious.

I'm from the UK, and just spent time over in the states. The American version of top gear is not that good. (nor is the Aussie version I've seen also)

IF any of you haven't yet you need to watch the UK version. It's brilliant!

The UK version is the only one worth watching. I love it.

Dont trust all you read on Wiki, you obviously dont get the whole 'The Stig charictor judging by your response, The Stig still lives on Top Gear UK, I assume you never watch UK top Gear (and now Top Gear US who has a stig too). Maybe the humour is lost on some of my American cousins,

My guess is the American Top Gear "Stig" is Paul Tracy (just speculating becuase of the the supercar showdown show that he co-starred in with fFoust). The current UK one? no idea. The US version is getting better, but the original UK version is still the best by far.
