Carlin is one of the most successful teams in junior motorsport, with race winning success in championships such as British F3, Porsche Supercup, World Series by Nissan, Formula Renault 3.5, FIA Formula 3 European Championship, GP3 Series and GP2 Series.
Some of today’s most successful drivers have passed through the doors of Carlin, including racers in F1, IndyCar, WTCC and DTM. F1 drivers such as Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Kevin Magnussen and Carlos Sainz amongst others, add up to a third of the current F1 field who are former Carlin alumni. IndyCar drivers Will Power, Charlie Kimball, Takuma Sato, Graham Rahal, Josef Newgarden, Mikhail Aleshin and Max Chilton all raced with Carlin in their junior careers before heading to the top US single seater series.
Part of the Capsicum group, the management team at Carlin provides a great combination of business skills and racing knowledge. Ensuring a stable business base for the team are CEO Grahame (Chily) Chilton, long-term motorsport enthusiast, and Rupert Swallow, Managing Director, complimenting Trevor Carlin’s wealth of experience and knowledge in motorsport.
With race and championship winning success in Europe, the team expanded its racing interests to include Indy Lights in 2015 and are the reigning 2016 Indy Lights team and driver champions.
