The Stig is already well-known for his ability behind the wheel of a Reasonably-Priced car but now the star of Top Gear appears to have achieved a different kind of immortality.
A 30ft high sculpture of The Stig has been created to mark the launch of new global channel BBC Brit.
The fibreglass model took three sculptors over two months to construct, with the head and torso alone measuring higher than a double decker bus.
The statue was loaded onto a truck at Top Gear HQ at Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey and will now journey across Europe for three days before arriving at its final destination: Warsaw’s Palace of Science and Culture.
BBC Worldwide’s Amanda Hill said: “BBC Brit will be the new home of Top Gear in Poland, so what better way to mark this than by taking them a giant Stig.
Fans will be able to spot him on the roads of England, Holland and Germany, he’s impossible to miss.”
BBC Brit, which launches on February 1, is described by the BBC as “premium factual entertainment that is intelligent but irreverent.
Male-skewing but with broader appeal, it blends expertise with entertainment
and fact with fun. The channel will become the exclusive home of Top Gear and covers a rich variety of subjects: cars; science; adventure; business; life-changing moments; extreme characters; quirky eccentrics and plenty of laughs.”
The 22nd series of Top Gear, featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May starts on BBC Two on January 25th, 2015 at 8pm.
