The team has been winning races across various categories for over 20 years. Carlin’s race winning heritage is set in British F3, where the team established its foundations in the late 1990’s. Since then, victories in championships such as Formula Renault 3.5, British F4, FIAF3 European Championship, GP3 Series, EuroFormula Open, Indy Lights and evenPorsche Supercup and Asian Le Mans Series have cemented the team’s winning reputation.
Some of today’s most successful drivers have passed through the doors of the team, including racers in F1, IndyCar, WTCC andDTM. Current F1 drivers such as Lando Norris, George Russell, Kevin Magnussen and Carlos Sainz among others, add up to almost half of the current F1 field who are Carlin alumni.
The team became Rodin Carlin in early 2023 following investment from Australian businessman and entrepreneur David Dicker. The move, which sees Rodin Cars become the majority shareholder of the front running British team, boosts the team’s performance ambitions on track and further strengthens the company’s business foundations.
The Rodin Carlin British F4, Spanish F4, F1 Academy, GB3, FIA F3 and FIA F2 squads are based out of the team's bespoke facility in Farnham, Surrey.
