‘History repeats itself’, and it indeed has . Ben Collins, who used to be THE STIG on BBC’s TopGear has moved to Channel Five. After being slacked by the BBC bosses and being called ‘greedy’ by none other than Mr. Clarkson himself, the former Stig has got  another chance of doing what he loves to, without the white suit though.

Ben Collins released an autobiography in  which he revealed one of the best kept secrets. As a consequence, the bosses at BBC and the 3 blokes who host the show were quite angry with him and thus they showed him the door, but Topgear’s loss was destined to be Fifthgear’s gain. So with Fifth gear appointing him we will be able see Mr. Stig race against Tiff Needell. Wasn’t that what most of us wanted to see?

Stay tuned for more updates. The next season of Fifthgear starts this October. We aren’t sure about Ben coming this season but U can find Karun Chandhok in one of the episodes.
