Ben Collins followed the hugely successful The Man in the White Suit: The Stig, Le Mans, The Fast Lane and Me with the definitive guide to How To Drive, which covers the stuff your instructor missed, your dad forgot and your mates pretend to know… but don’t. He has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Formula 3 and Le Mans to NASCAR. During his eight years as Top Gear’s The Stig, he put the world’s fastest and most beautiful supercars to the test and taught the A-list how to lay down racing laps. His latest book, Aston Martin: Made in Britain Ben explores the car with the double-o prefix from a unique perspective behind the wheel, carving through country lanes in his father’s V8 Vantage, driving Aston Martins in four James Bond movies and competing against them in the legendary Le Mans 24-hour race.

Ben designs and performs some of TV and Hollywood’s greatest car stunts, having doubled most recently for 007 in No Time to Die and starred in the dual role of stunt driver and actor in Ford v Ferrari playing Denny Hulme. He has also doubled for Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises and Vin Diesel in Fast & Furious 6 (during which he was persuaded to cast aside his treasured Jeremy Clarkson wig).
