Super Aguri trucks denied access to Turkish paddock
According to sources of our colleagues at 'autosport', the Super Aguri trucks have been denied access to the Turkish paddock today. The reason for this is, according to the sources of the website, that Honda CEO Nick Fry had informed the Formula One management that Super Aguri would not be racing in Turkey next weekend.
This follows after the comments from Nick Fry on the pending deal between Super Aguri and the Weigl Group. He commented: "It would appear unlikely that a company the size of Weigl is able to support a competitive Formula One team, unless of course there are other partners of which we have not been made aware."
This week, Aguri Suzuki will meet with the Honda board to discuss the rescue package put forward by the Weigl Group. The team hoped for an acceptance of this bid by Honda, but the developments at Turkey shine a new light on the matter.
With no access to the paddock, the Super Aguri trucks and motorhome are parked outside Istanbul Park waiting for further news from the team management.
