    Does anyone else find the shot of Stig a little strange? There is a woman in the next window to the left. Granted she's back a little from the glass. Notice, you can see the tops of Stig's driving boots above the window sill and the woman is just about at the knees. I wonder if it's a fake prop set up by the expressway to get a reaction?

    She is clearly standing further back than the stig that is why you are seeing the differnce with the knees. However the nice pose looks to me like a prop in the window.

    Speaking of Google Maps, if you go to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and put the little yellow man on the track, you can circumnavigate the track, go into the pits, and exit into the paddock.

    I guessed it was a cardboard stand-up....

    That means someone drove the street-view car on at least one lap, I wonder what it's time was.
