When he’s not be­hind the wheel of the Red Bull F1 racer, Mark Web­ber loves his home garage — in­clud­ing his ute

Townsville Bulletin - - Cars Guide -

UTE man Mark Web­ber turns to a Nis­san Navara when he’s not hit­ting 300km/ h on the grand prix cir­cuit in his Red Bull Racer. The haul­ing ca­pac­ity in the back makes the big dif­fer­ence for a man who spends at lot of time at his lux­ury man­sion in Bri­tain do­ing or­di­nary stuff like car­ry­ing bi­cy­cles and dogs, as well as his friends and fam­ily. Web­ber also has a V10-pow­erd BMW M5 and an aging Re­nault La­guna in the garage, as well as a Yamaha mo­tor­cy­cle, with­out count­ing the ride-on mower his fa­ther Al­lan drives dur­ing his vis­its from Aus­tralia to watch his son in grand prix ac­tion. But Web­ber has a new love from the Porsche fam­ily — even though he gets free cars from One spon­sor­ship pack­age. The man who earns an es­ti­mated $ 10 mil­lion a year splashed out last year on a Porsche 911 GT2 RS, which is priced at $ 560,000 in Aus­tralia.
