Keating Told He Can't Drive Jaguar To Venice, Takes The Train Instead

BOYZONE star RONAN KEATING has missed out on a race to Venice, Italy from London in a classic Jaguar sportscar - because the owner wouldn't let him get behind the wheel.
The Irish singer helped launch a car versus train race across Europe on Thursday morning (29Apr10) - between a 1956 Grand Prix Jaguar D-type and the Orient Express.
Keating had to settle for a seat aboard the Venice-Simplon-Orient-Express train, which is favoured to win the race to Italy, after he was told driving the car would not be an option.
Before the train left Victoria Station, the singer said, "I asked (to drive it) but they wouldn't let me."
The car's owner, Jonathan Turner, will share the responsibility of getting the car to Venice ahead of the train with Octane magazine editor Robert Coucher, who organised the race.
Both the train and the classic car are expected to arrive at their destination on Friday evening (30Apr10).
