Kart star Fewtrell joins Car­lin for MSA

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish karter Max Fewtrell will race for the cham­pi­onship­win­ning Car­lin squad in MSA For­mula this sea­son.

The 16-year-old won the Tro­feo An­drea Margutti KFJ se­ries in 2014 and has also starred in the Ger­man KF cat­e­gory.

Fewtrell made his car rac­ing de­but in the MRF Chal­lenge at the end of last year and picked up a third place in Dubai. He’s cur­rently 11th in the stand­ings.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to get go­ing,” he said. “Car­lin is a re­ally big name in mo­tor­sport, all the lit­tle de­tails I learn with them will def­i­nitely help me through­out my ca­reer. I couldn’t re­ally ask for a bet­ter place to start my ca­reer in cars.”

Car­lin boss Trevor Car­lin said: “We’re ex­tremely happy to have Max in the team. He’s shown great pace in test­ing so far, and de­spite his young age he has demon­strated real ma­tu­rity in the car.

“As his first sea­son in car rac­ing, no doubt 2016 will be a steep learn­ing curve but Max has all the nec­es­sary skills to be able to be com­pet­i­tive from the out­set.”

Fewtrell is the third driver to be con­firmed for Car­lin, af­ter James Pull and Devlin Defrancesco.
