With The Stig featuring prominently on all Wagon Wheels packs – temporarily named Stig On Wheels – the promotion, running from March to May, will provide 30 winners with a track day with The Stig himself and a subscription to Top Gear magazine for others.
"We're giving people a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the thrill and adrenalin rush of speeding around the "Top Gear" track with the world's most famous, anonymous racing driver and it will be a truly memorable day for the winners," says Kate Needham, director, marketing, Burton's Biscuit Co.
