The Original Stig - We know who’s behind the mask. Do you?
His name is Perry McCarthy
Perry McCarthy is quite simply unique. He is an ex Formula One driver, he is a bestselling author and he was the original secret racing driver from BBC Top Gear 'The Stig'. Perry combines his famous sense of humour and his experiences of rising to the top against the odds to entertain audiences worldwide with hilarious after dinner speeches or captivating business and motivational addresses.
In the world of International Motor Racing, Perry McCarthy is known for his speed and humour. But he is also famous for his determination, opportunism and deal-making abilities. His motto is "Whatever it takes"
Across his career, there were many difficult times for Perry and his young family but he would not give up, either on or off the track, always finding a way to make things happen.
Life after Top Gear
Throughout his entire motor racing career, Perry was renowned not just for his speed and determination, but for his sense of humour and sideways look at life.
His quick wit and ability to deride himself, and others, has entertained spectators, race guests and even rival teams and drivers, in pit lanes, paddocks and bars across the world.
His popularity has since catapulted him into being in high demand for large and small corporations all over the world. With his unique and alluring style, Perry engages audiences with hilarious anecdotes and tales of highs and lows.
Perry’s speeches are fast paced and include stories about his role as the original Stig (from Top Gear), his rise to Formula One, some misadventures at 200 miles per hour and comic sketches on Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Nigel Mansell, Murray Walker and of course, Jeremy Clarkson.
Perry happily invites audiences to ask him questions about cars, driving, Top Gear and Formula One before signing autographs (if required).
