About the Author

Ben Collins, formerly The Stig from the BBC's internationally acclaimed Top Gear, was the benchmark of speed against which hundreds of celebrities set themselves,: the man that everyone - including Formula One stars Nigel Mansell and Lewis Hamilton - tried and failed to beat. He is also the go-to guy for Hollywood car chases (he was Bond's stunt driver in every film since Quantum of Solace) and has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Touring Cars and Le Mans 24 Hour to the American Stock Car circuit.
