The Stig is thought to earn between £5,000 and £10,000 a show, and is currently in a dispute with the BBC over his attempts to launch an autobiography.

BBC bosses have recently issued legal warnings in an effort to stop any publications that would identify The Stig’s real identity, breaching a confidentiality agreement and ruin the mystery of his character.

The driver is reportedly unhappy that the BBC is making money from his “brand” but he is not received a share.
