Perry McCarthy, the original ‘Stig’ from Top Gear is set to make his motorsport comeback in the ultra exciting TitansRX European Rally Cross Championship 15 years after hanging up his helmet due to injury.
On 30th January Perry was the mystery guest on Chris Moyles’ Radio X show, “Who Are You”. You’ll see it didn’t take long for the studio team to figure out who Perry was, and Perry takes the opportunity to tell us the origins of the name, “Stig”.
In late 2016 Perry was invited to comment on the forthcoming new Amazon show, “The Grand Tour” - Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May had all moved on from the BBC to bring their new British motoring television series to the masses.
In June 2015 Chris Evans was announced as the new presenter of BBC’s Top Gear, following the resignations of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. Perry was invited to comment on the matter by Channel 5 News..
