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