June 15, 2021

Carlin’s Christian Mansell will make an appearance in the Euroformula Open Championship this weekend as he joins the grid for the upcoming races at Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium. The Carlin BRDC British Formula Three race winner will experience his first taste of the legendary circuit this weekend as well as the Euroformula Open car, when action kicks off on Friday with free practice.

Mansell heads to Spa off the back of a fantastic opening weekend in the BRDC British Formula Three Championship in which he clinched his debut victory following an impressive opening corner overtake. The Australian racer is already a proven race winner in British Formula Four after a stellar rookie season in 2020 and now looks to expand his skill set with a trip to the Belgian circuit.

This will be the first visit to the Belgian circuit for the 16-year-oldhowever the infamous seven-kilometre track provides him with another great challenge as he looks forward to three action packed races.

Mansell said of the weekend, “I’m definitely excited for the weekend. I can’t wait to drive such a cool car at such a great track! To be honest I’m going there with no expectations really; the plan is to drive as fast as possible and enjoy it.”

Trevor Carlin added, “This is a great opportunity for Christian to get some valuable track time in a different car and at a circuit he’s never raced at before. We think very highly of the Euroformula Open Championship and the opportunities it presents to the drivers, so this is a welcome addition to Christian’s and our 2021 schedule.

“Obviously, the car will take some getting used to however, after his strong debut in the British F3 championship at Brands Hatch, I have no doubt that he’ll learn quickly and enjoy the weekend.”
