We did have to tell The Stig to slow down a couple of times though.”
Ulf Spitzer, Street View Program Manager, Google commented: “At Google, we’re used to life in the fast lane, so we were thrilled to ride alongside the infamous Stig and capture imagery of what has become a British — and indeed global — institution for automobile fans.”
