GP2 teams DAMS and Arden will compete in Formula Renault 3.5 next year after their entries were accepted by championship organizers.
DAMS, which ran Romain Grosjean to this year's GP2 drivers' title, and former F3000 champion outfit Arden, which fielded cars in both GP2 and GP3 this year, were among 13 teams named on the championship's official entry list on Monday.
The teams take the places occupied by Epic Racing and Mofaz Racing this year, while all other 2011 entrants have retained their spots in the championship.
Epic, which fielded a team in FR3.5 this year – and ran a conjoined test program with DAMS at Barcelona last week – has been dropped to the reserve list, alongside Formula Renault Eurocup squad Koiranen Racing. Mofaz announced earlier this month that it was shutting down its FR3.5 team.
The announcement means that Van Amersfoort Racing, Max Travin Racing and Atech Reid GP have all failed to gain entries to the championship.
