Court date continued for local business owner

Monday, November 16th, 2009



The court date for Britt’s Motorsports Owner David Scott Britt was continued last week.

Britt was originally slated to appear in a New Hanover County courtroom Thursday November 12. That date has since been pushed back to December.

Britt faces felony charges for allegedly altering or changing a manufacturer’s serial number on a motorcycle and fraudulent title application.

DMV officials say Britt was using salvaged motorcycle parts and welding the vehicle identification number to another frame in order to get a fraudulent title.

The Britt’s deny these charges. Mr. Britt said he and his family have operated the business for more than 30-years honorably and have never taken advantage of anyone.

Robert Connelly, a Britt’s Motorsports employee, and Donald Hill, a former employee, also face charges.
