A project with some history, ever since we made the first edition of this movie back in 2019 it started as a joke and we didn’t know what to expect other than us having a good time and creating something fun for people to watch. Once this first video got online the response was great and we as a team wanted more. So it went, I started thinking of a possible second video that had some different scenery but the idea behind the video would stay the same Stig vs Stig a race. All of this was well planned and prepared for the following year, but unfortunately, we never got the chance to release this video because the car had flipped almost 4 times during the opening scene of the video….
I still had this dream on my mind to one day continue this series, and this year I finally dared to continue and get people involved again in something that had such a painful history.
I scouted Ireland, Achill island to be exact. A small island off the west coast of Ireland a beautiful place with a lot of wind and unique opportunities to make another episode and go even further than I thought was possible. After 5 months of planning, preparing, and finding the right people to get involved we pulled it off and I couldn’t have been more stoked on the outcome of this video.
Some words from Edwin Haighton: (Director) When you are out shooting with Stig, you know it's going to be good. Jumping gaps, big loops, big stunts, it's all there. We had planned all the scenes down to the tiniest details and the crew worked together like clockwork. But in the back of our minds, we constantly had this little reminder of the last time we tried this shoot, where we trashed that car. So the most memorable moment for me, was when we wrapped up. It all came together like we planned and the result was epic. This felt like making amends for the previous attempt, and I couldn't be more glad that Stig pushed on to shoot this film again!
A big thanks and all the effort from the Crew:
On to the next one!
