Seized FA trailers for sale on eBay

8:47 am on 13 April 2010

Two Formula One trailers used by last year's world champion Brawn team before being bought by the would-be US F1 team have been put up for sale on eBay after being seized under a court order issued by a British creditor.

The U.S.-based team had been due to enter the championship this season but failed to build a car in time due to financial problems.

The trailers, still in Brawn livery and one with world champion Jenson Button's name and number 22 on the side, will go to the highest bidder without a reserve.

When new, they carried an estimated price tag of $650,000.

One trailer contains an office with space for 10 engineers.
