British Touring Car Championship team Robertshaw Racing has offered a reward for any information leading to the recovery of a laptop belonging to team principal Gary Robertshaw which was stolen in a raid on the team's transporter.

The transporter was parked in a compound on the Silverlink Estate close to the team's base in Boldon, Tyne and Wear when it was broken into on Sunday night.

The flat screen televisions and monitors used by engineers during races were taken along with Robertshaw's Apple laptop - which contains two years of data vital to the team.

Anyone with information can contact the team by calling +44 (0)191 5190550.
