Can the Stig control the Veryon around the test track?

I'm at work and can't see the video, just thought it was worth an fyi.

1.18 around the track 4th fastest on thier board

i believe the Stig was a bit cautious on that lap.

i remember when they had to put a wing on the koenneseg just so stig would be able to turn.

That rear wing being activated as a high speed brake is soooo cool!

there is also an article on autoblog today where they head to head compared a gt-r and a gt2!!! 18pgs of awesomeness!!!

IMO, I'm glad it didn't get the top spot, not a veryon fan.

I have never seen The Stig work so hard in his life, he looked like he was nervous!
None the less well done STIGGY!!!

I'd be nervous too with 1.1 Million Euros riding on my every move. He's a fantastic driver, though.

My all-time favourite Top Gear vid is the Carrera GT review (oh, the exhaust note)

I'm not surprised it wasn't on top. I knew it would be high but I didn't think it would be on top. It may be an automotive masterpiece but it's a 4000lb+ car and more of a GT car than a track car.
