Motorsports Governing Body FIA Accepts NASCAR Team Owner Gene Haas' F1 Entry

A new F1 entry proposed by NASCAR team co-Owner Gene Haas was accepted by motorsports governing body FIA on Friday and "another application made by former F1 team principal Colin Kolles is also under consideration," according to Alan Baldwin of REUTERS. No "further details were given" but an FIA spokesperson confirmed that "former Jordan, Midland, Spyker, Force India and HRT principal Kolles was behind Forza Rossa with Romanian partners." FIA did not say when the "proposed new teams were planning on entering." Last December, FIA "called for expressions of interest from potential new entries wanting to compete" from '15 or '16, and set a January deadline. There are "currently 11 teams on the starting grid" (REUTERS, 4/11). Haas said, "It's an exciting time for me, Haas Automation and anyone who wanted to see an American team return to Formula One" (Stewart-Haas Racing).
