Oh those wacky lads and lasses in the British Press. They’re just not happy unless they can sell some newspapers with outrageous hypothetical news, preferably invoking the name of David Beckham, of course. The Daily Record obliges.
SCOTS race ace Dario Franchitti has been tipped to rake in more cash than David Beckham after becoming the first Scot to win the IndyCar series.Breaking out my handy dandy conversion chart it looks like that would be around 260 Meeeelion Dollars, and according to The Scotsman, Mr Judd is now “expected” to rake in this kind of insane income.
The 34-year-old could pocket more than £130million in America after his historic victory last week, sports agents have predicted.
It would beat the £128million David Beckham is believed to be picking up through his five-year deal with LA Galaxy.
RACING champion Dario Franchitti is set to out-earn David Beckham and become one of America's richest sport stars.Riiiiight. He’s got charm, wit, good looks, a movie star wife, an Indy 500 win, and a killer brogue - a fantastic spokesman for nearly any sponsor. But while he may get a substantial increase in compensation this year wherever he drives, Dario isn't going to be making Beckham-type money even if he changes his last name to "Beckham". Or "Earnhardt".
The Bathgate driver became the first Scot to win the IndyCar series and he is now expected to collect more than £130 million in winnings and endorsements.
