Back in 2006, a crew competing in the UK Honda series were caught pouring water into a rivals fuel tank.

They might have got away with it many years ago but in this modern age they were captured by a CCTV camera carrying out the 'dastardly deed' and both crew received 5 year racing bans.

A similar situation appears to have occurred during the UIM World Class 1 championships in Terracina, Italy. 

Reigning World Champions Victory Team easily won Saturday's race 1 but mysteriously retired with a drop box failure on their transmission during Sunday's race 2.

We understand, it has since emerged CCTV footage filmed two mysterious individuals 'tinkering' with the gearbox on the Victory boat during Saturday night.

The film has been handed to the race officials for investigation.

No doubt an announcement will be made of the findings in due cause, although at this stage it's just an allegation as opposed to a clear-cut accusation.

Sadly, the staff at Raceboat International are so old they can remember Peter Butler's early days of commentating from Bournemouth Pier.

Peter has been making great films covering powerboat racing across the Globe for many years since.
