“Scuderia Coloni: ‘talks with IndyCar just started’”
TheMotorsportArchive.com contacted a spokesperson from Scuderia Coloni regarding the team’s potential move to the IndyCar Series in 2013.
From their base in Perugia in central Italy, the spokesperson revealed that the team have:
“…just started talking with [IndyCar].”
Following their recent fall out with the GP2 Series, Scuderia Coloni are aiming to maintain a relatively high profile within motorsport’s single seater divisions and the team see IndyCar as the right fit.
“You have to consider that Coloni raced in Formula 1 and then always raced in the top tier single seater series – Formula 3000 and then GP2, so there are not many series’ that Coloni can go to, that are up to the Coloni pedigree.
IndyCar is a top-notch category and we would be interested in that.”
However, Scuderia Coloni have also been keen to press home the fact that talks are still in their early stages.
“We made a first contact with them and they took note of our interest in the series and told us that they would be keen to have an Italian team in the championship.
For the moment, there is nothing more than that. We are taking it into consideration, but it is just first contact for now.”
With the current IndyCar season beginning to draw to a close, Scuderia Coloni may need to act fast to ready in time for 2013 should they choose to enter.
