    Rowan Atkinson was racing me on the m40 in his F1 mclaren the day before his crash...

    The above says it all really....he was really friendly - he was smiling and waving to me and the mrs. We were ragging it down the M40 for around 10 minutes - he pretended to come off at the northolt slip road east bound and shot back on to the m40 at the last second.
    Nice one Mr Bean! - he must have been taken driving tips off me!! thats usually my trick.......

    Shame he crashed his it yesterday tho.... maybe my tuned S3 unnerved him......

    I wonder if that McLaren will ever see the road again? I think when Rowan Atkinson was interviewed on TopGear, he said his F1 had covered 37k miles, which is classed as high mileage for this type of car!

    I still want to own! Time to buy some lottery tickets!

    This will only make McLaren F1's more rare and expensive! Not that I have any chance in hell of ever owning or driving one!
