Carlin End IndyCar Involvement

The Carlin Racing team has officially ended their NTT IndyCar Series programme ahead of the start of the 2022 season with the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg later this month.

The news comes as team owner Trevor Carlin sold the teams IndyCar assets to the new Juncos Hollinger Racing team who will field Callum Ilott this year.

Former Carlin driver Max Chilton announced on Wednesday that he has joined McMurtry Automotive as a development driver.

Carlin joined IndyCar in 2018, fielding two cars for Max Chilton and Charlie Kimball who joined the team from Chip Ganassi Racing.

The team struggled for performance and in 2019 they failed to qualify for the Indianapolis 500 with Max Chilton while Pato O’Ward also failed to qualify.

The team scaled back their participation in recent seasons with Max Chilton and Conor Daly sharing the No.59 Gallagher Chevrolet.

No Word From Carlin Regarding The 2022 IndyCar Series Season

Carlin Racing has yet to announce their plans for the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season with rumors circulating that the team will not compete in the 2022 season.

Carlin has endured a tricky few years in the series and while last season the team ran Conor Daly and Max Chilton it is a different story this season after Daly was announced as a full-time driver with Ed Carpenter Racing joining Rinus VeeKay.

There had been suggestions that Carlin were going to enter into a partnership with Juncos Hollinger Racing for this season however such a scenario seems to be off the cards.

The NTT IndyCar Series will host their annual pre-season media days on Monday and Tuesday and at this point Max Chilton is not part of the line-up.
