Turvey To Race For Carlin In Monaco

1 Mins read

Oliver Turvey has been handed the opportunity to race for Carlin in the GP2 Series round at Monaco this weekend.

The Briton tested for the team during pre-season as their regular driver Mikhail Aleshin suffered budgetary problems. Aleshin returned to the team for the opening two rounds of the season at Turkey and Barcelona, leaving Turvey without a seat.

Turvey will hope to repeat the result he achieved on the streets of the principality in 2009, when he won the Formula Renault 3.5 race for Carlin. He finished his rookie season in GP2 last year with iSport in sixth place, but lost his backing from the Racing Steps Foundation in the winter. He then raced for Ocean in the GP2 Asia Series, but the drive did not lead to a deal for the main series.

Turvey forms an all-British driver lineup at Carlin alongside the team’s regular driver Max Chilton.
