Kent Police crackdown on off-roading

Police warn riders for 'damaging' Holly Hill wood in Kent

DUCATI CORSE boss Claudio Domenicali believes that CRT is not the future for MotoGP but that

Speaking to GPOne at the Wrooom press conference last week, Domenicali said: "If the championship goes in the direction of CRT's only, and this means production based engines and the obligatory choice of a 4-cylinder to be competitive, that would force us out of the series."

KENT Police have warned off-road riders from riding the Holly Hill wood and posting videos that show them 'damaging' the conservation area.

A two-day operation was undertaken by Kent Police, resulting in 14 warnings given to people driving anti-socially at Holly Hill Wood, near Snodland, and if caught a second time these vehicles would be seized.

Six fines were also handed out and one vehicle was seized, as the driver had no licence. PC Tony Green, from Kent Police's motorcycle team, told Kent Online: "The actions of these individuals are just another form of mindless vandalism. The potential damage to the environment caused by bikes and cars in this area is vast, as it is a special conservation area and also a site of special scientific interest.

"We have seen evidence of rare plants and trees being damaged and being uprooted deliberately to access the protected areas in vehicles.

"What compounded their actions though is that the culprits were so blase about this that they decided to post videos of their deeds on YouTube.

"We wanted this operation to send a strong message that motorbikes and 4x4s in this area will not be tolerated and those found driving here could have their vehicles seized permanently."
