Remember the Spice Girls? Ginger Spice, the girl in the Union Jack dress? That was, or is, Geri Horner (nee Halliwell) who is married to the boss of Red Bull Racing Christian Horner. Keith Belcher says "she is a car nut, an MGB nut, to boot. Apparently when he was a little girl her father was a car dealer. She remembers those days fondly; at that time, she had a favourite toy red sports car.
When she received her first Spice Girls pay check the first thing she bought was a bright red 1967 MGB Roadster NBL 825E for £15,000. Later in 1998 she left the Spice Girls and wanted shake off her past. Her MGB was sold for £8,500 with other Spice Girls stuff, the proceeds going to charity. She later regretted selling the MGB. She later married Christian. In 2016 he searched out that very car, which luckily was still with the 1998 auction buyer and bought it. He then presented it to Geri for her birthday".
