Breaking: Super Aguri denied access to Istanbul paddock

Super Aguri's trucks and motorhome have arrived at Istanbul Park, but the team has been denied access to the paddock, autosport.com reports.

While waiting for a decision from Honda this week regarding an investment by the Weigl Group, Super Aguri chose to send its equipment to Turkey, and return its cars to the Leafield factory.

Officials, when asked by autosport.com, said the reason Super Aguri were denied access was Honda's Nick Fry said the team would not be racing in Turkey.

Fry has been critical of the Weigl bid, saying the organization lacked proper funding to sustain the team. Weigl responded to those claims, saying he indeed had a long term plan, investors lined up, and was confident the Honda board would support his investment.

Fry has made no secret he believes Honda's support of Super Aguri has gone above and beyond the call of duty.

The trucks and motorhome are currently parked outside Istanbul Park awaiting word from management.
