If you love the Top Gear show you definitely know who The Stig is. Always introduced by the tagline "Some say", The Stig is the mysterious racing driver who tries out a car on the Brits track. 
 
The time has now come for Top Gear to tell us the life story of The Stig through a book called "The Stig. The Untold Story". The book was written by a journalist who followed our racing driver over the past years. 
 
"The book is no ordinary biography and the Stig wasn't a willing subject. The journalist spent a year following a Stig shaped trail to discover the truth of the man in the white suit. How as he got so many celebrity friends, where does he come from and how exactly did he influence Punk?", told us Ebury, the publisher of the book.
 
"The year-long quest took him from Surrey to another part of Surrey to the very ends of Surrey and then, unexpectedly, to Finland before returning to Surrey. Along the way he unearthed remarkable information about The Stig's influence in areas as diverse as motorsport, international politics and the punk movement. he also got covered in a strange green substance", is the description offered by the publisher of the book.
