Jackie Stewart denies supercar crash claim

Racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart has denied claims that he was behind the wheel of the supercar Pagani Zonda that crashed into a telegraph pole last September, causing more than £300000 of damages.

The Pagani Zonda S, which costs more than £500,000 to buy, can reach speeds of 220mph.

Some media reports claimed that Formula One legend Sir Jackie Stewart was driving the car that crashed near Aberdeen last September.

But, speaking on the topic, a spokeswoman for Sir Jackie Stewart said, "Sir Jackie wasn't in the country. He's never driven the car and doesn't know the owner."

The crashed supercar has already been sent for repair to Modena in Italy.

Insurance firm Aviva said the repairs to the crashed car could cost it more than £300,000.
