Drug find to put heat on F1 transporters

Updated: 


Motor sport transporters are facing the prospect of more police checks following an incident in the UK last month.

The Telegraph reports that huge amounts of drugs and a gun was found in trucks belonging to the World Superbike series team Kawasaki whilst travelling by road and ferry from Italy.

A source at the UK Border Agency said: "Our intelligence analysts will be looking much more closely at motor sport vehicles from now on, including Superbikes and even formula one.

"They have been pulled over very rarely and that will now change," added the source.
