Kjaergaard said of the upcoming season, “It is fantastic to have signed for Carlin again. I am really looking forward to working with them and continuing my learning curve and results from last year. I feel like home within the team and they are very professional in their approach. Therefore, I’m am confident that we will have another strong season!”
Team Principal Trevor Carlin added, “It’s great to have Nicolai back with us for another season following what was an impressive year with us in the BRDC British F3 Championship. He proved to be an exciting racer to watch and he gave a good fight as he battled for the wins all season long. I look forward to continuing our strong relationship and can’t wait to see what he can achieve this year.”
