Force India today rubbished reports that former team owner Eddie Jordan's closing of a road around its Silverstone factory had affected the Formula One outfit's access to the facility.
"There are two approach roads to the silverstone facility and the main public road which gives access the silverstone facility of Force India remains open and the visitors and staff have normal and usual access," Force India spokesman Prakash Mirpuri said.
Jordan was the owner of the team in its Jordan avatar and also has substantial land ownership around the factory.
Reports had come that he had blocked access to the factory by closing the road.
The Force India spokesman admitted that Jordan had indeed closed the road but maintained with the main public road remaining open, the team's access had not been affected.
"The second road created by Eddie Jordan during his ownership has been closed by him as he wishes to explore alternative uses for is land. This in no way affects Force India," he added.
