The original `Stig’ from BBC Top Gear, Perry McCarthy is one of Britain’s top racing drivers and is already part of motor racing folklore. McCarthy’s rise through the ranks along with close friends Damon Hill, Johnny Herbert and Mark Blundell, has been against all odds and in a sport dominated by finance he recalls how he ‘started with nothing and then lost it all!’ McCarthy’s bubbly personality and absolute refusal to concede defeat have made him popular with the press and corporate audiences alike. The Telegraph headlined him as ‘a new cult hero’, The Times called him ‘the world’s unluckiest racing driver’ and America’s Sunday Express described him as a ‘comedian locked inside a racing driver’s body’. His hilarious autobiography Flat Out, Flat Broke, was published in July 2002, has become a motor racing best seller receiving rave reviews. Perry is available as a presenter, motivational and after dinner speaker.
