Racing drivers crowd the top end of The Sunday Times 2012 Rich List for British sportsmen with Scot Johnny Dumfries fifth, with £110 million from land, motor racing and art.
Eddie Irvine comes a surprising 7th on 80m from property and motor racing. Jody Scheckter 8th on 60m from motor racing and defence training. Lewis Hamilton 9th on 55m. Jenson Button 10th on 53m. David Coulthard, Nigel Mansell, and Dave Richards are tied at 50m on 11th. Sir Jackie Stewart is 17th with 42m and Damon Hill is a comparatively distant 55th with 19m.
American racing drivers didn’t make it into the top end of Forbes Magazine’s Rich List but team owner Roger ‘The Captain’ Penske, made it to 386th with $US 2.7 billion in his moneybox!
