    I think he can cope with the premium, he's worth over £70 million.

    When the national average is somewhere around £25k I think you might have done! And, I don't reach such 'dizzy' heights either... :Sobbing:

    Going back to Mr Atkinson, at least he DRIVES his cars and does a lot for charity - a Mog pal has been at Goodwood at the same time, where Mr. A. has been giving kiddies track rides in the MacLaren / other motoring exotica.
    Much as I'm no fan of the "Ginger Whinger", Chris Evans is in similar league for organsiing events and giving to childrens' charities.

    And good on both of them for doing so! :Thumbup:

    Cheers,
    Graham :Smile:

    Atkinson has said he wants to put 100k on his F1. Better drive more carefully then!

    The 100k is his renewal premium

    Love the bit of journalistic creativity 'before bursting into flames'?! Yeah that looks like it was gutted by fire, NOT!

    Strange how there was no mention of fire in the original news articles.
