USF1 Testing In the States

What Happens When a Message Begins to Coalesce

10:04am EST — In some interesting and exciting news for American F1 fans, USF1 has announced in an interview by Peter Windsor at the official Formula1 website that they have received special dispensation by the FIA to test at Barber Motorsports Park in Alabama, instead of hauling the cars across the Atlantic to test in Spain with the rest of the 2010 F1 field.  According to Windsor, “the first time we will run the car will be in the United States at the Barber Motorsport Park in Alabama. This is the circuit that was nominated by the FIA for us. We’ve got this dispensation from the FIA, which is fantastic, because we are not based in Europe. We are the only team that has a test circuit outside Europe, so it is totally logic for us to run the car for the first time in the US at the beginning of February. We are allowed three sessions in the US.”

Barber is used as an IRL test track, hosts an IRL race, AMA Superbike race, Grand-Am sportscar race, and various other events.  Whether fans will be allowed to attend is unlikely but still unknown.  This team with a new strategy and emphasis on the “new” F1 could well surprise by actually being as fan-friendly as they have suggested they would be.
