F1 trailers up for sale on eBay

Two Formula One trailers bought from Brawn GP are up for sale on internet auction website eBay and have been expected to fetch around £300,000 a piece.

The trailers were intended to be used to transport F1 cars and equipment by racing venture US F1, but the team failed to enter the championship this season due to financial problems that prevented development of the car.

It was planning to run two American designed and built cars with American drivers. Later, the trailers were seized under a High Court order issued by a UK creditor.

David Carter, director of The Sheriffs Office responsible for enforcing the High Court writ, said: "As a keen motorsport fan, it is certainly one of the more interesting seizures we've made.

"The trailers were recently bought from Brawn GP by the judgment debtor and really are something special. We've already has a lot of interest and are now selling them via eBay."
