A new toll road at Silverstone
Eddie Jordan, the former owner of the Force India F1 team, has been out of the F1 picture for several years, since selling his team to the Midland Group. The team was then sold on to Spyker and last year was acquired by Vijay Mallya and renamed Force India. Jordan, however, retains control of some of the land around the factory and has been trying to convince the team to buy it. The team has shown little interest and so Jordan has started the alarm bells ringing by placing concrete blocks across the access road that leads to the factory, which he is entitled to do as it belongs to him.
No doubt a suitable solution will soon be found.
