How sixth was victory for Uri
15 July 1996
PARANORMAL expert Uri Geller today claimed a paremoral victory in his bid to make racing driver Martin Brundle the toast of Norfolk.
The spoonbending champ predicted that Brundle would take the chequered Hag in yesterday’s British Grand Prix, as long as Evening News readers touched a special orange spot published in Friday’s paper.
By today, an unrepentant Mr Geller had changed his tune ever so slightly but was still insisting it was “quite amazing” that Brundle had come in sixth.
“I took a plane up above Silverstone and went round and round and round.”
“If I’d have met Martin Brundle and personally instilled psychic confidence in him then he would definitely have come first, second or third,” he said.
Broadland Radio DJ Nik Coleman, who kicked off the Geller campaign, was also upbeat.
“It was Brundle’s equal best finish of the season,” he said. “We hope to work with Uri again.”
