Our INDYCAR team profile

Carlin made their move into the NTT DATA IndyCar Series in a full-time capacity in 2018 after three successful seasons in INDYCAR’s ladder series, Indy Lights and will be starting their second full-time season in 2019.

Joining the team’s second season INDYCAR effort at Carlin are drivers Max Chilton, Charlie Kimball and Patricio O’Ward along with primary partners, international insurance brokerage and risk management services firm, Gallagher and global healthcare company, Novo Nordisk. Both Chilton and Kimball drove for Carlin earlier in their racing careers. The championship winning team will be powered by engine manufacturer Chevrolet.

Chilton’s partnership with Carlin renews a successful relationship that goes back throughout the British racer’s career. Chilton won races with Carlin in Formula 3 and Formula 2 (formerly GP2 Series) before racing in the FIA Formula 1 World Championship from 2013 – 2014. In 2015 Chilton explored racing in the U.S for the first time with a season of Indy Lights with Carlin, along with a run with a manufacturer LMP1 program at the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Kimball returned to Carlin in 2018 after a 10-year period, following race winning success with the team in British F3 and later in the Carlin-run Victory Engineering Team in the World Series by Renault. It was in the latter series that Kimball’s season with the British team was cut short when the California native was suddenly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2007.

O’Ward joined Carlin for a part-season programme from round two of the series at the Circuit of the America, Austin, Texas.  O’Ward will also run as a third car entry for the team at the 103rd running of the Indianapolis 500.
