Good news for the supposedly struggling Campos team, with its final pre-season preparations receiving a boost on Tuesday with the team’s 2010 challenger passing its final mandatory FIA crash test.

With its chassis being manufacturer by Italian firm Dallara, the technical progress now needs to be matched by financially in securing more sponsorship to ensure its place on the 2010 grid.

Team boss Adrian Campos told AUTOSPORT that he was delighted with the technical progress being made ahead of its February debut test at Jerez, despite recent speculation that the team was battling to raise sponsorship funds.

"The car is now homologated and we are still working very, very hard," said Campos. "We are very confident about our position, and we are close to a deal with an investor that will help us even more."

This is good news for the team!

He also said that the team hoped to reveal the identity of its second driver in the next fortnight, having already secured the services of Bruno Senna.
