Carlin are one of the largest teams outside Formula 1 with race winning experience in a variety of championships including British F3, Porsche Supercup, World Series by Nissan, Formula Renault 3.5, A1GP, 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 among others, add up to almost half of the current F1 field who are Carlin alumni.
Part of the Capsicum group, the management team at Carlin provide 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 Trevor Carlin, who has a wealth of experience and knowledge in motorsport.
Today, based out of the team’s bespoke facility in Farnham, Surrey, we compete in F4 British Championship, BRDC Formula 3, EuroFormula Open, the FIA Formula 3 European Championship and FIA F2 Championship, as well as the European and Asian Le Mans Series.
