Kai Askey will join Carlin for the 2021 F4 British Championship certified by the FIA – powered by Ford EcoBoost. The 15-year-old makes his debut in car racing with the multiple championship winning team, making the step up from karting.
Askey began racing in karts aged eight while living in Singapore. After returning to the UK he competed in British Championships from 2015 to 2017 with Fusion Motorsport and then graduated on to racing in Europe in 2018 and 2019 with Ricky Flynn Motorsport in the CIK-FIA, WSK and DKM series. In his first year in Europe Askey notched up numerous podiums and finished all championships in the top ten.
Askey completed a test programme in the FFSA Academy in 2020 but missed out a season of racing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Keen to make up for lost time, Askey has already completed several test days with Carlin in the British F4 car and has slotted in well with the Carlin team.
