World Exclusive! – the Stig press conference

World Exclusive! – the Stig press conference

Here in New Zealand at the Top Gear Live media launch on Wednesday, we were treated to a world first — a press conference with the infamous Stig. To be expected, this was a very honourable experience for all in attendance, and one that will go down in history. We recorded the questions from the floor, and have put it down for you to enjoy here.

Stig, what is your favourite type of beer?

Stig: ¦¦

Stig, what are the chances of a guy like you, and a girl like me ending up together? Sharing a bit of helmet time together?

Stig: ¦.

Stig, have you seen Greg Murphy anywhere? In the toilets maybe?

Stig: ¦.

What’s the staple diet of the Stig?

Stig: ¦.

Stig, you’re a talented driver, and have driven numerous high performance cars in your time. I guess what we want to know though, why don’t you show your face?

Stig: ¦.

Of all the cars you’ve driven, which is your favourite?

Stig: ¦.

Did you get your start in go karts, or was it in wings and slicks?

Stig: ¦.

Stig, I have here a printout that shows footage on youtube of the black Stig. What’s the deal there?

It was at this point the Stig stood up, slammed the microphone down on the table, picked up the piece of paper showing said footage, screwed it up and threw it over his shoulder as he left the room. None the less, the New Zealand media were treated to a once-in-a-lifetime experience: 5 minutes with the legendary Stig. Thanks for your time, Stig!
