Keith Flint - TVR Cerbera
I saw Flint in the Cerb a few times. Also Jay Kay in a Silver Spur on Halstead High Street..and Stirling Moss in a Mustang in the pitlane at Silverstone (Is that cheating?).
I saw Keith too, giving it some around the Braintree multi-storey in about 1996.

Last weekend I followed a black MP4-12C with a '12C' plate. Must have a few bob I thought...

Then got alongside at a set of lights, and Mr Dennis himself was at the wheel.

Saw a white Scuderia Spider on the M4 last year, traffic was slow and as I went past I snook a look over and I'm *sure* it was Jay Kay (numberplate had letters JAM which kind of suggests it was).

Ed Miliband in a A4 diesel.

Okay that's only in my mind - dull, like all the others, only more costly.

Just want a v8

Many years ago on the way to leeds I saw martin offiahs mrs (i knew it was his mrs as he was in the passneger seat, could have been any female though) driving his merc of some sort into a petrol pump nr leads. Yes thats into the petrol pump! Knackered all the front spoiler/splitter/bumper as the concrete around it was quite high. How we laughed and mocked only to be told to foxtrot off and as he is quite big we thought we would take his advice.

Chris Evans in his 250 Cali on Hyde Park Corner a few years ago. One of the nicest cars I've ever seen, and easily the most valuable. cloud9

Chris Eubank in his massive yank truck in Brighton.

Didier Drogba in a 'pimped' Range Rover/Overfinch. vomit

Dickson Etuhu (kind of famous - plays for Fulham FC for the benefit of non-footballing types) in a 'pimped' Audi Q7 on Putney High Street more times than I care to remember.

My top spot is Nick Mason overtaking my 260Z on the way back from Le Mans in 96'

Mason's car has been registered "250 GTO" for donkeys years, so I don't think that's him.

Robbie Williams on the M4 after the 2005 Cup Final between United and Arsenal in Cardiff.

He was sitting in the back of a Roller (i think) with the number plate 'ROBBIE' or something like that.

They were doing well over a ton when they passed us.

Jason Dodd ex-captain of Southampton in a 330d saloon , he was checking out my 330 Cab smile

-

Dennis Bergkamp during the time he played at Arsenal , back in Holland near where his wife lives - he was in a Merc 500 or 600 SEL

Was in the passenger seat of a mate's car doing 100ish down the M40 towards London, when a big old Merc came screaming up behind us, we pulled out of the way and were given a filthy look by horse riding pygmy Willie Carson.
Trevor Nelson (DJ and radio chap)in a range rover in Swansea, and my favourite, Phil Bennett in another old Merc in Llanelli.
That's about it.

Years ago Chris Eubank cut in in front of me on the A23 in that arctic unit he used to drive, plate was 1 KO.
I've also followed Theo what's his name in his Maybach before he had it chromed, plate RYM4N.
The only recent one I've seen was Jordan in her pink Range Rover in Sevenoaks, I'm not sure whether that's worth a mention on here though!

I have had the pleasure of seeing Mr Rowan Atkinson in his F1 and Enzo. I saw the Enzo in Tetbury as he had to stop for me to use a zebra crossing allowing me to get a really good look.

I've also spotted HRH Prince Charles on enough occasions around Tetbury but am yet to spot his Biofuel Aston.

Finally, Lily Allen in a S class Mercedes in Minchinhampton, presumably off to get her hair cut as she uses a salon in the town centre.

Well we're pretty sure it was him.......

Oh and GianFranco Zola and his young son (during his time at Chelsea) at the traffic lights in Wimbledon , in a nice Merc SL. We clocked him at the lights , he laughed and took off when the lights changed.

Once stopped Alan shearer driving an Audi A8 v12, his front seat passenger was Michael Owen. He declined to allow a bonnet and boot search so was not allowed to pass my checkpoint.
