Apparently Hamilton is the star in the reasonably priced car this coming weekend link

So, who do you think will be faster, Lewis or The Stig

I think Hamilton's pure racing driver's line round the track will be quicker..Stig too often gets the tail out on cars. An F1/single seater driver will try to minimise oversteer.

They should use Smart's, park an Alfa on the side of the track,
Hamilton crash and Stig win

Stig set the time in the suzuki, the lacetti is known to be MUCH faster round the track so no doubt that hamilton will beat the stigs time from the Liana.

I reckon, in the same car, they would tie and JC would use this for many "who is the stig" jokes.

Here's the Top Gear blog about the event.

He will be doing the lap in the Liana on a wet track, so he won't beat the Stig's record, but I'm sure he'll be back to do it in the dry one day.

Sorry Gary, but this sort of screws your poll up a bit mate :rolleyes:

Hamilton probably weighs half a ton less than the Stig. With a small power compromised vehicle this could make a big difference, but the wet track will cancel it all out.

Are there any Ferrari parts on a Suzuki...ah yes a chassis that bends in the middle when it shouldn't:cheese: :cheese: :lol:

The man with the most experience on a specific track will win.
But it will be close .... clean lines are the formula, oversteer a big no !
