Car­lin closes in on step up to Indy­car

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Car­lin could make its Indy­car Se­ries de­but in 2017 in part­ner­ship with long-time en­trant and cur­rent KVSH Rac­ing co-owner Kevin Kalkhoven.

MN’S sis­ter ti­tle Au­tosport has learned that Kalkhoven is set to end his team own­er­ship col­lab­o­ra­tion with Jimmy Vasser and could join forces with Car­lin at its ex­ist­ing Florida premises if a deal is com­pleted.

An even­tual move into Indy­car has been Car­lin’s aim since it ex­panded into Amer­i­can rac­ing by en­ter­ing Indy Lights two years ago and it has al­ready an­nounced an en­try into USF2000 next sea­son in part­ner­ship with kart­ing squad Benik.

Team boss Trevor Car­lin con­firmed talks were in progress.

“It’s be­ing worked on, but it’s a long way from be­ing a done deal,” he told Au­tosport. “Noth­ing would change apart from we would be in­volved. It’s a way off yet and there are still some pieces of the jig­saw to put in place.”
