    Wonder what his excess was?!

    Rowan Atkinson: Insurers fork out £910k to fix comedian's McLaren supercar - Mirror Online

    A quote from the link which made me smile!
    He lost control of the F1 and hit a tree, leaving the car's 6.1-litre engine 20-yards away from the rest of the vehicle.

    Did he not nearly right this car off about 10 years ago?

    I remember seeing that car sitting in queuing traffic on the day of the accident, on the A414 near St Albans, Herts, I didn't realise it was him until I read about the accident the next day! I figured he must have been frustrated & running late, before deciding to floor it. But £0.91 million is a lot of money for a car repair, even if it is a McLaren.

    yea, I suppose! Maybe that's because if the Insurance Co refuse, the owner can usually afford to pay for it themselves... I mean you wouldn't buy it with your last million would ya. lol
