The boys over at Jalopnik are far more on the ball however and have enlisted one of America’s leading experts on Morse code to, er, de-code the code. While the Stig tortured the new Lexus IS-F around the Top Gear track we heard two bursts of circles and lines - but what do they mean? Apparently this:
Morse code number 1: ‘Too many gears’. No doubt a reference to what Clarkson had said earlier in the show.
Morse code number 2: ‘I like Mr Sulu.’ A fan of I’m a Celebrity Get me out of Here perhaps?
