Carlin are delighted to welcome back race winner Kaylen Frederick for the 2020 BRDC British F3 Championship. Frederick returns to the Farnham based team after a strong season in 2019 and has been busy preparing over the winter for the season ahead with the defending champions.
Frederick, at just 17-years-old is already a two times race winner in the British F3 Series and claimed four podiums and a pole position in his debut season last year. The young American returns with the two times champions as strong contender for the title. Frederick’s previous race experience includes ten podiums and three poles in USF2000, with Frederick first gaining experience of single seaters on the IndyCar support package before making the move to Europe full-time in 2019.
Speaking about the season ahead, Frederick said, “I’m super happy to be returning to British F3 with Carlin. We took a lot of positives out of the 2019 season and I think both I and the team learnt a lot and know areas that we can improve on for 2020. Having moved over from the US, it was tough last year adapting to completely new circuits that I’d never raced on before so the experience gained last season will really help. I’d really like to thank Pilot One Racing and all my sponsors for their continued support and allowing me to follow my dream. We have a great platform under us with which to show our potential this year. I can’t wait to get back out on track and get the season started.”
Trevor Carlin added, “We’re delighted to have Kaylen return to British F3 with us this year. He made so much progress during the 2019 season I’m excited to see what he can achieve in 2020. He is a great asset to the team both in and out of the car and works extremely well during testing with the engineering team. It’s a pleasure to have such a mature hardworking driver pushing us forward as we head into the new season to defend our title.”
Frederick will next be on track testing on Monday 2nd March ahead of Media Day on Tuesday 3rd March. The first race of the season will take place at Oulton Park from 9th – 13th April.
