Court date continued for local business owner


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.

30-years honorably

His father handed this business to him. He thought he was better than everyone else, now the truth has come out and he has delayed the court date. He is just trying to buy time before he is found guilty.He will be the one to blame for the ruined reputation of his family and their name, won't be long before the business is in some other family members name or haveing to be sold all together. He has long been shady in his business dealings.

Scotty Britt

I have known Scott Bitt for about 10 years. Last year I was deployed to Iraq. I wrote Scott and told him a bunch of my guys loved motorcycles and had read an article about his custom bikes. The next week I received a box from Britt Motorsports with about 20 shirts and numerous gifts that I passed out and let me tell you I had a bunch of happy soldiers!

Scotty Britt/reply

even crooked people can do nice things. maybe he did it because it makes a nice story to say he sent something to you in iraq.
