Ben Collins Biography

A Le Mans championship winner; bestselling author; TV presenter; world record breaker and Hollywood stunt driver, Ben Collins' name is synonymous with motor sports.

Bristol-born Ben moved to California as a child, and competed as a junior Olympic standard swimmer. When a career as a fighter pilot was cut short by a visit to the optician, Ben switched to cars.

Ben won races in just about every category he contested, from Formula Three to Le Mans Sportscars and GT. In 2003, racing for RML, he captured the European ASCAR title. When a lack of funding temporarily curtailed his racing career, Ben joined the Army Reserves. He also began a new venture working as a Hollywood stuntman.

A Le Mans championship winner; bestselling author; TV presenter; world record breaker and Hollywood stunt driver, Ben Collins' name is synonymous with motor sports.

Bristol-born Ben moved to California as a child, and competed as a junior Olympic standard swimmer. When a career as a fighter pilot was cut short by a visit to the optician, Ben switched to cars.

Ben won races in just about every category he contested, from Formula Three to Le Mans Sportscars and GT. In 2003, racing for RML, he captured the European ASCAR title. When a lack of funding temporarily curtailed his racing career, Ben joined the Army Reserves. He also began a new venture working as a Hollywood stuntman.

His TV breakthrough came when he was cast as the fourth presenter on BBC TV’s Top Gear programme. Known as The Stig, his task was to coach celebrities on how to get the best out of a “reasonably priced car”, organise car chases through cities and across continents, and test hundreds of priceless cars, sometimes to the point of destruction. Thirteen series on, his alter ego, that “man in the white suit”, is recognised by millions of Top Gear fans all around the world.

With his role as The Stig now over, Ben has returned to his first passion; motor racing. He rejoined the team that last gave him a championship title, RML and co-drives the team’s Lola HPD in the Le Mans Series with Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos, with whom he shared a class win at the end of his first race with the squad in July 2010.
