The Stig takes on a Google Street View car around the Top Gear test track (video)

As part of Google's partnership with Top Gear, The Stig accompanied a Google Street View car around the show's test track while it captured the necessary images for the online service.

Top Gear's tame racing driver sped around in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black, so the encounter couldn't really be described as a race as such. Instead, the behind-the-scenes footage released by Top Gear shows The Stig more taking the Mickey than helping out.

On the Top Gear track Street View pages, you can see the Merc in just about every shot. It's not The Stig's first appearance on Google's mapping service either. Not only was he accidentally captured a while back, he can also be found standing beside the A82 in Inverness.

The Top Gear test track also appears in Forza Motorsport 5 for the Xbox One and on Forza 4 for its Xbox 360 predecessor, should you get the urge to re-enact the stunts pulled by the driver in white.
