Sir Jackie Stewart has flatly denied allegations that he was at the wheel of a Pagani Zonda S supercar involved in a high-speed accident in Scotland, causing some £300,000 of damage.
An Aberdeen newspaper is claiming that Sir Jackie was behind the wheel in the accident, which occurred in September last year.
However, one of Sir Jackie’s reps has moved to reject the allegations: "Sir Jackie wasn’t in the country. He’s never driven the car and doesn’t know the owner," she said.
The repairs, which will occur in the Modena-based Zonda factory in Italy, are set to cost the insurer, Aviva, some £300,000.
