Motorfood poll: “Should Top Gear officially announce The Stig’s identity?”

After the last post, we were thinking about the role that The Stig plays in Top Gear.

Stiggy is a fundamental part of the show and has always kept it grounded in times when extensive budgets and timed scripts haven’t. He acts as the placebo for the show and is now seen as the ultimate litmus test in the automotive world; forget Nürburgring times, Joe Bloggs knows how good a car is by how quick the Stig drives it round the Top Gear track.

So wouldnt we lose some of Top Gear’s magic if we actually knew who was behind the ice-white suit? Give your opinion in the poll below, or fill in a comment if you have more to say.
