    I am shocked and disturbed by a man’s action today, as reports are coming out over a young boy who was mugged for Shane Byrne’s boots. During the days racing Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne won the 2012 BSB Championship, and too celebrate threw one of this boots into the crowd. The boy who caught the boot was reportedly punched and mugged of the boot.

    Shane offers to 2 laps of Brand Hatch to the boy, but he needs to find out who he is.

    I am disgusted with the actions of this man, and have never seen such an attack at a Motorsport event, if you know anything of this, please post on Shane’s Facebook or Twitter

    I cannot believe what I’m reading here. What kind of sick moron would do such a thing?

    Hope the boy is okay, and will enjoy his laps at Brands Hatch!

    In some ways, I’m not surprised; sport can make some people do crazy things.
    However, I still think that’s disgusting.

    I saw that Mark Webber re-tweeted this. It’s shocking and I’m appalled that someone can behave like this to a kid.
    Let’s hope Byrne does get to meet the kid.
