Lunching with the Black Stig from Top Gear

I am not a petrolhead but I do like watching the original Top Gear with their crazy antics. Like everyone else, I too wanted to know the identity of the Stig. An invitation to lunch with the original Stig was not to be ignored.

Perry McCarthy was invited as the guest of honour for a lunch preview of the Grand Prix Ball at World’s End Market.

As we feasted on their new summer menu, we learnt more about all the fun luxury lifestyle events that GP Management organises.

Jonny Dodge, the founder, is an adventurer and is currently in astronaut training for his future space adventures. His company has hospitality rights across Formula One, Adventure Travel, Celebrity Experiences, Space Tourism, Yachts & Jet experiences and adventures. His company is the organiser of the Grand Prix Ball. What a fun and adventurous life he lives.

Perry Mc Carthy is a British Racing Driver who was the first mysterious Stig on Top Gear. He was the unidentified driver in black leather in a black helmet that had everyone guessing. Now Perry is a highly sought after motivational speaker.

The Grand Prix Ball is the only time when the F1 cars are driven in London. Besides hob nobbing with F1 stars and the motor racing elite, it should be a fun night at the exclusive Hurlingham Club. Besides, you get to contribute to a worthy cause, Wings for Life, an international not-forprofit spinal cord research foundation; funding research around the world to find a cure for spinal cord injury.
