Perry McCarthy is quite simply unique. This exuberant Cockney racing driver had little going for him except a passion for speed, made it all the way to the top to Formula One & later became the original secret racing driver from BBC Top Gear 'The Stig'. 

Perry combines his famous sense of humour and his experiences of rising to the top against the odds. Throughout his racing career, he was renowned not just for his speed and determination, but for his sense of humour and sideways look at life. 

He never gave up and his relentless search for backing and recognition led the man The Times dubbed 'the world's unluckiest racing driver' to heroic, often hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking efforts to make it into Formula 1. An Audience with Perry McCarthy is fast paced evening and includes stories about his role as the original Stig, his rise to Formula One, some misadventures at 200 miles per hour and comic sketches on Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Nigel Mansell, Murray Walker and of course, Jeremy Clarkson.
