South African former auto racing driver, Jody Scheckter has a net worth of $90 million as of May 2012, based on the Sunday Times UK Rich List. He’s best known as the motorist who gave Ferrari their last F1 tournament success before Michael Schumacher came up trumps in 2000. It was after his F1 career was over that he really made his bundle. Aged 30, Scheckter went into race promotion before heading to America, where he found Firearms Training Systems, which supplied hardware for weapons training simulators for authorities and military uses.
Jody Scheckter Net Worth $90 Million
Scheckter sold the company in the late 1990s, picking up about 100 million. Within two years he intends to be self sustaining in fossil fuel-free energy. It’s a costly business, but it is now making money, with Laverstoke Park turning in a 77,000 gain on 2.2m sales in 2010-11.
