Been wanting to do this for a few years. Managed to find some authentic gear for cheap to make it happen... I need to lose a few pounds this week. 6' 0" 190lbs is too heavy for the Stig...

Oh and yeah the whole thing is freaking hot so I don't know how I am going to survive several hours at 2-3 parties this weekend... Taking my helmet off would be sacrilege!

Star Wars storm trooper?

Kidding, but we both had the same idea. My racing suit just got here today helmet/gloves/shoes come tomorrow so I will have to snap some pics too.
Cool which suit did you get? There are some white karting suits on ebay. Mine is a real Alpinestars karting suit that is only available in Europe so I bought one on a UK site for not much more than the one on ebay and for a LOT cheaper than the $700+ needed for the one the Stig wears...

I got the closest suit I could get which was the Alpinestars SP suit (GP-tech he wears only comes in a white/silver now), the helmet gloves and shoes are all the exact one he wears on the show.

Cool, that suit is $600! I hope you have use for it other than a costume..
I got the KMX-9 from a shop in the UK for about $130. The Stig has worn three different helmets all from Simpson - the Speedway RX, Bandit and Diamondback. I have both the Bandit and Diamondback. He also wore various gloves but mostly the Astars you got and some other brands as well. Shoes have varied as well.

I had the same idea, but I'm sure I will be way too hot in it. Are you going to talk to anyone?

Actually I would love to be Daft Punk but getting a good helmet would be insanely difficult. Did you see the video of the guy who made a perfect replica?
