Javier Sagrera will complete Carlin’s 2022 GB3 Championship line-up the team is pleased to announce. The 18-year-old Spanish driver will compete in his second season in the British championship and joins already announced team-mates Callum Voisin and Roberto Faria at the Farnham based team.
Sagrera secured strong results both nationally and internationally in karting, moving to car racing for his first full season in2020 in Spanish F4. Having attracted the attention of fellow countrymen Marc and Jordi Gene, Sagrera made the move to the UK, competing in the BRDC British F3 Championship in 2021, which would later become the GB3 Championship.
Learning both a new car and the challenging British circuits, a debut season in GB3 saw a season best position of second at Brands Hatch. Sagrera is keen to return in 2022to win races and mount a championship challenge after strong tests with Carlin in November.
"I'm really excited to join Carlin for my second year in the GB3 Championship”, said Sagrera. “This is a really important season for me and I'm excited to have put a programme together with Carlin who have such a strong reputation in the championship. The new car will be an added challenge this season for all teams and drivers, but I feel I'm in the right place to make the most of that. I can't wait for the season to get underway and a massive thank you to my sponsors for making this possible."
Trevor Carlin added “Javier is an incredibly mature driver and his professional approach both in and out of the car surpasses his experience. He has a great deal of potential and I look forward to seeing him progress throughout testing as he heads towards the season opener at Oulton Park.”
Sagrera will join the team for testing next week as he begins an intense pre-season testing programme before the first of eight rounds at Oulton Park in April.
