Kolles to buy out Campos in F1???

Adam Cooper's F1 Blog claims Colin Kolles has bought out Campos et al, and subject to Bernie's nod, Kolles F1 will be on the grid in Bahrain...

So where does that leave the R10 TDIs in LMS this year?

Just how rich IS this guy???

Mad-Dog-mk2 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Majority owner Jose Ramon Carabante is on the verge of taking full control of the team from founder Adrian Campos.

Carabante has engaged ex-Force India team principal Colin Kolles and ex-Red Bull technical director Geoff Willis on a short-term basis.

As I understand it, Kolles will be asked to run the team. He is not putting in his own money.

So Colin is a German David Richards then? Capable of running several things at one time. Only Prodrive dropped out of BTCC when DPR went F1 with Renault, way back...

“There are things which will be last, last minute, because to do a team in two weeks is not easy. It’s only possible because I have the infrastructure. I have people working for me like Mike Krack, who was chief engineer at BMW for example. Geoff Willis is a kind of consultant at the moment, and we’ll see how we’ll proceed with him.
This does read like he's going to pull resources from his other operations, but it may only be temporary to make Bahrain...
