The identity of the Stig is a story that simply won't die and according to the latest reports from the UK eight drivers have donned the white suit and helmet to portray Top Gear's legendary speed demon.

While two of the Stigs were not named in the Daily Mail's article, one of them reportedly spilled the beans and told the reporter who else has played the infamous driver. Among the many Stigs he named are F1 drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Julian Bailey, former GT world championship driver Chris Goodwin, stunt drivers Terry Grant and Russ Swift, and Swede Dan Lang who preformed a snow mobile jump in the show's winter Olympic special.

While it does make sense that a variety of Stigs are needed to film certain stunts, it seems slightly odd that there are so many of them. With Clarkson's mocking of the recent round of speculation, don't expect any official comment from the Top Gear hosts or the BBC anytime soon.
