Carlin adds sixth car for European F3 for Ameya Vaidyanathan

by Ida Wood


Carlin will join Motopark in fielding six cars this year in European Formula 3 with the signing of Ameya Vaidyanathan.

The Indian made his championship debut with the team last year, entering three rounds and scoring no points.

He also drove for the team in Euroformula Open, where he was a race-winner and finished fourth in the standings. The year before he was 15th with a best finish of sixth.

?It?s great to be moving up to European Formula 3 in what is now my third year with Carlin,? said Vaidyanathan.

?Staying in the team was a no-brainer because I can see everyone?s commitment towards achieving the highest standards.

“I?ve really learnt so much during my time at Carlin thus far and I?m keen to put everything to good use to find my feet in such a competitive field.?

Vaidyanathan joins Macau Grand Prix star Ferdinand Habsburg, European F3 race-winner Jehan Daruvala, Formula Renault Eurocup champion Sacha Fenestraz and EF Open frontrunners Nikita Troitskiy and Devlin DeFrancesco at the team.

Carlin previously ran six cars in 2015, although three were entered under the Jagonya Ayam with Carlin banner, which fielded championship runner-up and current Sauber reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi.

?This will be our third season working with Ameya and we?re pleased to see how much he has grown and accomplished in that time,” added Trevor Carlin.

“He took his maiden win in the Euroformula Open Championship at Spa-Francorchamps [last year] and has been consistently improving his racecraft. We are extremely pleased to be working together in such competitive championship and look forward to seeing what he can achieve.?
