Ron Dennis on British 'rich list'

McLaren boss takes position 648
It is no surprise to learn that a notable businessman in the English town of Woking has appeared in the Sunday Times' annual 2006 'Rich List'.

The local Woking News & Mail reports that Ron Dennis, boss of the McLaren team which is based in the region about a half-hour drive from London, is listed as the 648th richest man in Britain, with a fortune of about $160 million (£88m).

According to the newspaper, 58-year-old Dennis is now $14 million (£7.7m) richer than he was a year ago.

But he has a long way to go if he one day wants to beat Lakshmi Mittal to the Times' coveted number one position. The steel baron is worth an estimated $26.
7 billion (£14.8b).

F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, meanwhile, has about $4bn (£2.2b) stuffed under his mattress in London, but he is only one of no fewer than fifty four billionaires who also call Britain home.
