DP World London Gateway, the U.K.’s new deep-sea port, to present a simulated container crane contest at Birmingham’s Multimodial Expo.

Using an exclusively designed quay crane simulator, visitors to London Gateway’s stand will be able to exclusively challenge ‘The Original Stig’ to a quay crane race. (The Stig was an anonymous, silent, race-car driver in a well-known U.K. motoring TV series).

Following training from the Original Stig’s crane driver cousin, attendees will have the chance to go head-to-head in a challenge to see if they can beat The Original Stig at offloading containers from a container ship in a set time. Those who are victorious get an exclusive prize. Losers will get nothing but their name on the leader board.

The Original Stig will also be the guest of honour at the Multimodal VIP dinner sponsored by DP World London Gateway on the evening of 23, April 2013 as will Perry McCarthy. Perry will give the after dinner speech where he will confirm he is The Original Stig as well as sharing fascinating stories of his time as a Formula 1 racing driver.
