Give him some Stig

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SQUARE EYES -

Ben Collins was the speed king on the Top Gear track as The Stig. But he now has a ri­val – his 79-year-old mum Juliet.

He lost to her in a chal­lenge test­ing Voda­fone’s V-auto app, which shows how safe you are. It logs speed, brak­ing and ac­cel­er­a­tion, and Juliet won by four points

Ben says: “Mum did some rac­ing at one point, on the go-kart track, and turned out to be quite a speed freak. But I’ve un­der­es­ti­mated her pow­ers. Ev­ery so­cial oc­ca­sion, this will come up again and again!”
