The British Customs/Border Agency have discovered a large quantity of drugs and a weapon on board of the British Kawasaki SuperBike Team Open link in a new window from Paul Bird Motorsport Team.

4 team members were arrested for holding 8 kilos of cocaine, 71 kilos of amphetamine pills, 100 kg of cannabis and a pistol with 35 bullets. Obviously not for personal consumption. The Penrith, UK based team has big name riders Chris Vermeulen, Tom Sykes and Joan Lascorz.

The 4 men arrested were working as drivers and mechanics. They have been released on bail.

The British Customs have announced that from now on, race teams will receive more elaborate inspections. A UK Border Agency source said: "Our intelligence analysts will be looking much more closely at motorsport vehicles from now on, including Superbikes and even Formula One. They have been pulled over very rarely and that will now change."

The actions of a few misplaced people can affect a whole sport.
