Clarkson esitteli tehtävää suorittamaan kutsutun The Stigin tummaihoisen "afrikanserkun", jonka asusteena olivat ainoastaan Puman kengät, ajohansikkaat, lannevaate ja valkoinen kypärä.
Kahdennentoista kauden ensimmäisessä jaksossa esiintyi jälleen eräs The Stigin sukulainen, rekkakuski engl. Rig Stig , joka oli jopa The Stigin amerikanserkkuakin lihavampi ja muistutti stereotyyppistä rekkakuskia valkean haalarin käsivarren "rusketusta" myöten.
Hänen tehtävänään oli esitellä juontajille kuorma-auton käsittelyä ja etenkin yliohjautuvuutta. Eräässä jaksossa Stig oli uima-altaalla rentoutumassa ja taustalla on nähtävissä uiva nainen, jolla on valkoinen kypärä päässään.

Some senior executives at the BBC privately claim News Corp is using the Stig case to undermine the BBC as the two organisations fight a war by proxy.
The BBC is waiting to see the court's full judgment before deciding whether to take Collins to court for breach of contract but has signalled it is likely to do so.
The book is due to be published on September Nicola Cain, a member of the legal team working for the BBC, said: "This is about contractual obligations and confidential information.
The anonymous author of the Diary of a London Call Girl hid her identity for six years, keeping millions of readers and literary experts guessing.
After learning that she was soon to be exposed in a tabloid, Dr Brooke Magnanti, a year-old scientist from Bristol, revealed last year that she was Belle de Jour and had worked as a prostitute to fund her PhD studies.
Following literary analysis of the book, political journalist and Newsweek columnist Joe Klein was named as author.
A policeman who wrote an award-winning blog under the name Nightjack lost his battle to retain anonymity after the high court overturned a temporary injunction against the Times, which had discovered his identity, in June last year.
Richard Horton, a Lancashire detective constable, was told to take his blog down and received a written warning. Bristolian graffiti artist Banksy remains an elusive figure who keeps his identity fiercely guarded.
Clarkson closed the segment by observing that possibly, Schumacher was not truly the Stig after all. While the BBC initially would not confirm whether Schumacher's revelation was a stunt, The Telegraph reported the next day that a Top Gear spokesman confirmed Schumacher had played the Stig, due to Ferrari only allowing Schumacher to drive the FXX, but that "the identity of the driver at other times would remain 'a mystery'.
On 19 August , it was reported that a legal dispute was developing between the BBC and publishers representing the Stig, over plans by the Stig to release an autobiography revealing his identity.
Around the same time, the Sunday Times claimed that financial documents for Ben Collins' company, Collins Autosport, provided evidence that he was the Stig.
The Times stated that beginning a month after the White Stig's first appearance, the company had experienced an increase in profits ascribed to "driving services provided for the BBC, mainly in the Top Gear programme.
On 23 August , the BBC and the Stig's publisher, HarperCollins , appeared in court. HarperCollins confirmed that it was being sued by the BBC over the autobiography's publication, stating, "We are disappointed that the BBC has chosen to spend licence fee payers' money to suppress this book and will vigorously defend the perfectly legitimate right of this individual to tell his story.
As a result, it is important that the BBC does all it can to uphold confidentiality clauses that have been agreed to in relation to the show.
In a 27 August entry on the Top Gear blog, executive producer Andy Wilman attacked HarperCollins for attempting to reveal the Stig's identity: "The whole point of the Stig is the mystique — the bizarre characteristics he has, the wonderment created about what he might think, feel, do or look like.
HarperCollins have decided none of that is as important as their profits. On 29 August, the Daily Mirror claimed that photos of Collins at his England home on the same day that the Stig had appeared at a Top Gear event in Germany proved that Collins had already been fired from the Stig role.
When asked about the ongoing High Court action, Collins stated, "I am not allowed to talk about it. On 1 September , the case was decided against the BBC, as the High Court refused to grant an injunction blocking the publication of the autobiography now acknowledged to be authored by Collins.
Collins was in court for part of that day's hearing, but neither he nor the BBC confirmed afterward that he was the Stig; a BBC spokesman said, "The BBC brought this action as we believe it is vital to protect the character of The Stig, which ultimately belongs to the licence-fee payer.
Today's judgment does not prevent the BBC from pursuing this matter to trial and it will not be deterred from protecting such information from attack no matter when or by whom it should arise.
Immediately following the High Court's decision, Top Gear presenter James May commented, "Obviously I'm now going to have to take some legal action of my own, because I have been the Stig for the past seven years, and I don't know who this bloke is, who's mincing around in the High Court pretending it's him.
Speculation about the future of the Stig character began immediately. On 3 September , May told a radio show that the Stig would be "dealt with" in a similar manner to how the Black Stig was eliminated.
