Former motor racing journalist McNally, a Donegal native and long-time associate of former F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone, spends his time at homes in Switzerland and the Cote d'Azur — where he keeps a Sunseeker yacht — after selling Allsports Management, his Formula One events, corporate entertainment and trackside advertising business, to private equity giant CVC for 275m in 2006. McNally, who previously dated Sarah Ferguson (the ex-wife of Britain's Prince Andrew), is believed to own a chalet in the exclusive Swiss ski resort of Verbier which is said to command rents of 26,000 a week. Another of his homes was once owned by James Bond creator Ian Fleming, a stately pile on an estate in Wiltshire in southern England. A Rich List in a Swiss newspaper once estimated McNally's wealth at closer to 600m.
