Carlin Racing

In December 2014, British race team Carlin will expand in 2015 to incorporate the American series Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires. The multi-race and championship winning team will add the INDYCAR-sanctioned feeder series to its already comprehensive ladder of junior formula, taking drivers from karting to the door of the pinnacle of single-seater motorsport. The Carlin Indy Lights team will operate out of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., with personnel from both the U.K. and the U.S.

Racing Director Trevor Carlin commented, “We’re extremely excited to be taking the Carlin team to the U.S. and embarking on this new challenge into the Indy Lights series. We’ve had one eye on the U.S. for some time now and the time is right to widen our focus. We’re seeing more and more drivers look across the Atlantic from categories such as Formula 3 and GP2 Series to careers in Indy Lights and IndyCar and it makes sense as a European team to offer that route to our customers.

“While we remain completely focused on our race programs in Europe, it is also important to take on new challenges and projects that maintain our momentum as a company of people. By offering new opportunities we are able to offer strong team members new goals and challenges internally and retain them within Carlin. By no means do we underestimate the challenge ahead but we believe we have a great team of people to help us be competitive in Indy Lights. We see this as an important new chapter for Carlin and the entire team are excited for the future.”
