249km/h driver: I just got caught

2005-07-20 08:48

Jackson, 48, apparently plays "eeny-meeny-miny-mo" every morning to decide which of his sports cars to take for a spin to work.

His fleet of cars consists of, among others, four Lamborghinis, two Mercedes Benzes and a Ferrari. "I love cars and I am a good driver. I have never been in an accident.

"I know what I did was wrong, but many people drive at those speeds - I was just the one that got caught."

Jackson, who claims to have completed an advanced driving course, believes he is much less of a threat on the road than "any taxi".

"People are quick to jump on the bandwagon. Last week I donated R100 000 to charity and no newspaper wrote about that."

And what does Jackson have to say about the possibility that his licence could be suspended? "I will get a driver."
