Carlin to enter 2019 European Le Mans Series

Written by Carlin

Carlin is pleased to announce that the team will embark on a LMP2 programme in 2019. The British based team, which has a long relationship with Dallara through its single seater programmes, will use the Dallara P217 for the team’s first season in endurance racing. The operation will be run from Carlin’s Farnham workshop. The team will initially compete in the European Le Mans Series, with races in Asian Le Mans Series to be confirmed. While the team’s full driver line-up will be announced in due course, Carlin have already begun preparations with Jack Manchester, who has previous experience in Radicals and the Blancpain GT Cup.

Speaking about the programme, Trevor Carlin said, “The whole team are very excited about our move into LMP2. It’s an exciting category and a move that we’ve been assessing for a while. We see a lot of great drivers now move up the single-seater ranks and aim for professional drives in endurance racing rather than Formula 1, which shows the high respect this category of racing is held. For us, it’s another opportunity to hold onto and work with some great former Carlin drivers who are now at the professional level. In Jack, we have a very promising young British driver, right at the start of his career. We’re excited to work with him further and help him show his potential in LMP2.”

Further announcements to follow.
