Clarkson Confirms Stig Unmasked Tomorrow Night

Illustration for article titled Clarkson Confirms Stig Unmasked Tomorrow Night

Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson's providing further confirmation today to our report, first seen here, that the Stig's none other than former F1 racer Michael Schumacher, confirming Stiggie will be unmasked on tomorrow night's episode of BBC's epic motoring show.

According to Top Gear's own blog, Clarkson boasts tomorrow night's episode is "going to be the best thing that's ever been on television ever." Clarkson then reportedly paused for a brief moment before completing his sentence with " the world." Clarkson goes on to say

"the Stig barges into the studio and in an atmosphere you could cut with a knife, removes his a television moment, it's up there with Neil Armstrong walking on… the corpse of JR Ewing."


While Clarkson goes no further in providing details to the identity of the show's tame race driver, it's more evidence we'll see the Italian Stallion-driving German underneath Stig's white helmet when we eventually see the show pour down upon us like a torrent of rain.

Additionally, Top Gear's site's spilled the beans on a few more details from tomorrow night's show in an exclusive photo gallery — including a first drive of the Lotus Evora and a train vs. bike vs. Jaguak XK120 race. We can't wait for tomorrow night — be here with us as we'll have first-hand reports as soon as the show finishes airing — as well as, perhaps, some super-secret video. We already know it's going to be simply magical.

What in TopGear's history makes anyone think they would use a German driver for their test track?

Schumie can't travel without people recognizing him, How would he make it onto an old airport in England without anyone going, 'Hey that's Michael Schumacher'...
