The Checkered Flag and Mobil 1 Present:

Fan of Fanatec Contest: You are The Stig

NOTE: Minimum Entrants is 25 people. If minimum is not received, the contest will be void until the next time it appears.

Dates: September 28th, 2010 to October 15th, 2010.

Where?: On Forza Forums, Finish Line Racing, and The Checkered Flag.

Do you think you have what it takes to be the new Stig? Well, with the real Stig gone, who is going to take his place? YOU! Yes, that is right! The Checkered Flag and Mobil 1 have created this contest to give the community a new Stig, at least on the forums!

So, what does it entail? There are 2 parts to the contest:

Part 1: By entering via Forza Forums, Finish Line Racing forums, or via comment on this article,  you will write your story of why you think you will be the new and best Stig. Obviously, most can’t do what he did, so a little humor (and white lies) can be involved. Just make it funny, but it has to be related to The Stig and automobiles. Suggested length is about 2 paragraphs.

Part 2: 3 finalists will be chosen. You will, via Skype, talk with me and each other further about your motives and actions when you are The Stig. Over 5,000 people worldwide will hear you, and maybe you will actually become the new Stig! Of course, we can be lenient with this, if you do not feel comfortable with going on air. If so, and all 3 finalists agree, I have a secret backup plan.

How to enter: You can enter via Forza forums:
