As the head of McLaren Automobiles and the former leader of McLaren’s F1 efforts, Ron Dennis knows a thing or two about automobiles. Apparently, he’s got a passion for driving as well, but doesn’t always pay attention to details like speed limits and red traffic signals. A magistrate in Woking, UK, just slapped Dennis with a six month license suspension for running a red light, which put him over the point limit allowed UK drivers. Despite Dennis’ pleas for leniency, the judge followed the letter of the law in imposing the sentence and the required $400 fine. I’m sure that he’ll be able to find a suitable chauffeur for his six month suspension, but just in case I’d like to offer my own services. Please feel free to ping me via the site, Mr. Dennis, and I’m sure we can work out a trade: six months of chauffeur services, in exchange for room, board and a new MP4-12C sounds fair to me.
