Ben Collins to join Proctors stall at Business Showcase South West
Better known as The Stig from BBC’s internationally acclaimed TV show Top Gear, Ben has organised high-voltage car chases, tested hundreds of priceless cars to the brink and coached hundreds of celebrities – from Tom Cruise to Lionel Ritchie – around the race-track.
Nowadays, Ben can be seen behind the wheel on the set of high profile movies, including Skyfall and Batman: The Dark Knight Rises.
Away from the movie set, Ben has raced successfully in almost every class imaginable, from Formula 3 and 24 Hours of Le Mans, to American Stock Car Racing. He’s also written a book: How to Drive, which is an ultimate guide to being the best driver you can be.
Ben will be joining us at Business Showcase South West to conduct a keynote Q&A session on being the Stig, Bristol leading the way with innovation, and the future of automotive transport. You’ll have the opportunity to race him in a free racing simulator challenge at the Proctors’ stadium stand, and grab a signed copy of his latest book.
Speaking about what to expect on 16 May, Ben told us “The South West of England is a very special hotbed of creativity, innovation and commerce. I’m looking forward to being a part of the day and sharing my unique story and vision for the future with people from all business backgrounds.”
