JACKIE Stewart's Formula One team have been given the green light to compete in next year's World Championship.

The International Automobile Federation, world motor sport's governing body, confirmed it had accepted Stewart Grand Prix's entry for the 1998 season.

The Milton Keynes-based team were the only outstanding entry that had not been confirmed after speculation arose about its financial situation.
