The 23-year-old engineer from Dartford, England was detained by police on Wednesday for operating his drone in the immediate vicinity from the Mountain Course. In court during a hearing he admitted his guilt when flying the unmanned aircraft within 1,000 metres of the course during a race, having no legal grounds to do such activity. The lawbreaker emphasized that he had no idea that it was illegal because of the absense of any signs. Moreover, he was punished by a £3,000 fine.
