Carlin has confirmed that Javier Sagrera will complete the team’s line-up for the 2022 GB3 Championship partnered by the BRDC. The 18-year-old Spanish driver will compete in his second season in the series and joins already announced team-mates Callum Voisin and Roberto Faria at the Farnham-based squad.
Sagrera secured strong results both nationally and internationally in karting, moving to car racing in 2020 for his first full season in Spanish F4. Having attracted the attention of fellow countrymen Marc and Jordi Gene, Sagrera made the move to the UK for his first campaign in GB3.
Learning both a new car and the challenging British circuits, his debut season in the category saw him claim a season best result of second at the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit. Sagrera is now aiming to win races and mount a championship challenge this year after strong tests with Carlin in November.
"I'm really excited to join Carlin for my second year in the GB3 Championship”, said Sagrera. “This is a really important season for me and I'm excited to have put a programme together with Carlin who have such a strong reputation in the championship.
“The new car will be an added challenge this season for all teams and drivers, but I feel I'm in the right place to make the most of that. I can't wait for the season to get underway and a massive thank you to my sponsors for making this possible."
Trevor Carlin added: “Javier is an incredibly mature driver and his professional approach both in and out of the car surpasses his experience. He has a great deal of potential and I look forward to seeing him progress throughout testing as he heads towards the season opener at Oulton Park.”
Sagrera will join the team for testing next week as he begins an intense pre-season programme before the first of eight rounds at Oulton Park in April.
