Perry McCarthy

Top Racing Driver and the original "STIG" from BBC's Top Gear

Perry McCarthy is one of Britain's top racing drivers and is already part of motor racing folklore. From 2002 to 2003 he was the mysterious character 'The Stig' on BBC's Top Gear program, the identity of whom baffled many viewers for a long time.

His ability to grab everyone's attention and make them laugh has ensured that we book him on a regular basis David Ingram - Audi PR Manager

In Detail

Perry's 10-year fight to reach the sport's elite paid off in 1992 when he was chosen to drive for the fledgling Andrea Moda Formula One organisation. The dream however turned into a nightmare as the team stumbled from one disaster to the next and in recent years he has turned his attention away from Grand Prix to Le Mans and the demands of Sports Prototype racing. In 2002 he was actually co-presenter with Damon Hill of the Sky TV digital F1 coverage - a shame it was such a boring season of F1!.


Perry McCarthy uses his experiences as a top international racing driver to deliver highly entertaining speeches for numerous blue chip organisations.
