Lewis Hamilton Victory Parade Cancelled

Formula One race car driver Lewis Hamilton has been jipped out of a victory parade by his McLaren team’s home base town of Woking, England.

Woking officials cancelled the parade citing the $160,000 cost of providing security for an event that would undoubtedly attract thousands of people” due to Hamilton’s popularity was too much to handle during these hard financial times.

“Given the council’s financial position and the national and global economic climate, Woking Borough Council is unable to fund an event that would enable members of the public to safely participate in the celebrations,” a Woking town hall spokesman was quoted in the Daily Star.

The last victory parade held in Woking was for former champion Mika Häkkinen in 1998.
