Kart star Fewtrell joins Carlin for MSA
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.
