Johnny Dumfries Net Worth $165 Million
Scottish peer and a former racing driver, Johnny Dumfries has a net worth of 110 Million ($65m) as of May 2012, in accordance with the UK Sunday Times Rich List. In 1984, Johnny Dumfries was crowned British Formula Three champion after winning 14 races. It turned out to be his only season in F1, as he picked up only three points. Dumfries tried endurance car racing next and in 1988 was one of the three-man team that won the Le Mans 24-Hour race. Dumfries retired from racing in 1991. Two years later, Dumfries was left 144m when his father expired. After deducting debts of 12m, that left a 131m fortune but the cost of preserving the 53,000-acre Mount Stuart estate and house on the Isle of Bute has been even costlier than racing cars for a living. There have been regular art sales and Dumfries also sold his secondary mansion Dumfries House and its contents for 45m in 2007.
