Book Perry McCarthy – The Original Stig

After Dinner & Motivational Speaker

As a booking agent for Perry McCarthy we can arrange for Perry McCarthy to entertain your guests. Perry McCarthy is an ex Formula One racing driver, author and was the original secret racing driver from BBC’s Top Gear ‘The Stig’! Perry McCarthy combines his experience as a racing driver with being ‘The Stig’ to delight audiences at home and abroad with either a hilarious after dinner speech or a captivating motivational address.

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 – Perry McCarthy recalls how he ‘started with nothing and then lost it all!’

Perry’s 10-year fight to reach the sport’s elite paid off in 1992 when he was chosen to drive for the fledgling Andrea Moda Formula One organisation. The dream however turned into a nightmare as the team stumbled from one disaster to the next and in recent years Perry McCarthy has turned his attention away from Grand Prix to Le Mans and the demands of Sports Prototype racing.

As always, Perry McCarthy ’s exploits are well chronicled but when he is on the track his talent and determination shine through. His sense of humour is legendary and is frequently aired in his articles for leading publications and in his work as a TV commentator and programme presenter.

Perry’s bubbly personality and absolute refusal to concede defeat have made Perry McCarthy popular with the press; 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’.
