Formerly Top Gear’s The Stig and Daniel Craig’s stunt driver in James Bond, Ben Collins is renowned for his speedy, slick driving and daredevil stunts.
Collins is one of Britain’s most renowned and unusual sportsmen. He is most famous for his role as the Stig, but he is respected as a focused and successful businessman. Collins has put every known supercar to the test, racing the world’s greatest cars, from the Bugatti Veyron and Ferrari 430 Scuderia to a London Routemaster. From the anonymity of his white helmet he taught some of the world’s most famous stars how to lay down a fast racing lap, managed to catch a parachutist in his moving car and coached a blind man how to take on a chicane.
With his role as The Stig now over, Collins has returned to his first passion; motor racing. He rejoined the team that last gave him a championship title, RML and co-drives the team’s Lola HPD in the Le Mans Series with Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos, with whom he shared a class win at the end of his first race with the squad in July 2010.
