LOLA has announced it has withdrawn its application to enter Formula One.
The team last week missed out on a place on the FIA entry list for 2010, but hope was still alive that Lola could still be selected if other constructors withdrew.
Several established F1 teams have been in negotiations with the FIA over the proposed budget cap for next year, with a deadline of June 19 set for their entry.
Regardless of the outcome of those negotiations, Lola will not compete in Formula One next season.
