Who is The Stig? Where did he come from? Why does he never speak? To answer these questions, award-winning biographer Simon du Beaumarche spent a year chasing The Stig and talking to those closest to him, including Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May and leading figures from Formula 1, music, movies and the military. What he discovered is an explosive story of intrigue, influence and a sensational conspiracy that seeks to hide the truth about one of the 21st century's greatest icons. Get behind the visor of the man, the myth, the driver, the legend, THE STIG. This book contains adult humour and some themes that may be unsuitable for children.
Simon du Beaumarche has written over 40 biographies including True Gristle: The Madonna Story, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: Nice To Meat You and the best-selling work John Major: Five Shades of Grey. He is perhaps best known for his TV Quick Book of the Year winner, Cheryl: Cole's from Newcastle. He describes THE STIG as his most challenging project to date.
