Car­lin re­cruit karting star Sargeant for Bri­tish F4 and he sets early test­ing pace

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Ti­tle-win­ning Bri­tish F4 team Car­lin has signed two more driv­ers to its line-up for 2017, with new re­cruit Lo­gan Sargeant top­ping the timesheets in the se­ries’ first col­lec­tive test.

Car­lin has signed the 16-year-old Amer­i­can, who has starred in karting and is cur­rently sec­ond in the United Arab Emi­rates F4 stand­ings. He will be joined by Ger­man dres­sage con­vert Lucas Alecco Roy in the team’s line-up this year, along with the pre­vi­ously an­nounced Pa­trik Pasma.

“Car­lin have won the cham­pi­onship two years in a row so they are the ob­vi­ous team to com­pete with in Bri­tish F4,” said Sargeant. “It’s go­ing to be a very ex­cit­ing year, and we are all go­ing to be push­ing to make it three ti­tles in a row – I will do every­thing pos­si­ble to make that hap­pen.”

Sargeant was im­me­di­ately on the pace in the first col­lec­tive test, af­ter the Jan­uary ban ended, at Oul­ton Park last week. In both the morn­ing and af­ter­noon ses­sions he was quick­est, beat­ing Ar­den’s Os­car Pi­as­tri on both oc­ca­sions.

In to­tal, 11 driv­ers took part in the open­ing test day, with the next ses­sion sched­uled at Brands Hatch on Fe­bru­ary 16.
