Lots of money floats around the motorsports world, and that means theft. Sometimes this means extraordinary and audacious theft.

Everything from race cars to race haulers to diamonds off of car noses to Formula One world champions themselves have been snatched up.

Most recently, F1 champ Jenson Button was gassed and had nearly half a million in stuff stolen.

What do you think is the most audacious robbery/kidnapping/absconding plot in the history of the motor racing world?
