Trophies Stolen From Red Bull F1 Factory

Written By:

The Red Bull F1 factory in Milton Keynes has been looted of nearly 60 trophies. This incident took place on Friday night as six men gained entrance to the factory through the front gate.

Two cars were used according to the police, both registrations were from out of the country.

The thieves made away with 60 trophies, which were the pride and joy of team Red Bull. These trophies were collected over the years and meant a lot to the team.

Christian Horner, Red Bull team boss says, "We are obviously devastated by this serious factory break-in, which saw offenders drive a vehicle through our front entrance and steal more than 60 trophies which took years and hard work to accumulate."

"The break-in caused significant damage and was very upsetting for our night officers who were on duty at the time."

"The offenders took items that not only did not belong to them, but which represented the efforts of a group of dedicated, hard-working individuals."

"Beyond the aggressive nature of this break-in, we are perplexed why anyone would take these trophies."

"The value to the team is of course extraordinarily high due to the sheer hard work and effort that went into winning each and every one."

"But their intrinsic value is low; they would be of little benefit to those outside of the team and, in addition to that, many of the trophies on display were replicas."

Police have reported that although the trophies have gone missing, none of the staff working that night were harmed.

The Red Bull Formula One factory could become less accessible to fans in the future.
