Warranty Solutions Group have signed up The Stig in a three year deal to promote its brands. Good move!
We don’t use the ‘icon’ word carelessly, but in this case we can say that the genuine motoring icon that is Mr Ben Collins will make a superb brand ambassador. Despite his enigmatic profile and tight-lipped persona he was always, by a long way, the most interesting and charismatic personality on Top Gear. It’s great to have him back.
Best known as ‘the man in the white suit’ following his eight year career as The Stig, Ben has coached countless celebrities around the race track, organised high voltage car chases and tested hundreds of priceless vehicles.
He is also a championship-winning Le Mans race car driver, author, world record breaker and Hollywood stunt driver, having worked on four James Bond films where he was the stunt double for Daniel Craig, as well as on Star Wars, Transformers and Fast & Furious 6.
Welcome back, The Stig.
