Norris Joins Carlin For MSA Formula

1 Mins read

World karting champion Lando Norris will team up with single-seater powerhouses Carlin for his first season of open-wheel competition in MSA Formula next year.

Norris joins the new-for-2015 championship after a hugely successful maiden car-racing campaign in Ginetta Juniors this year with HHC Motorsport.

Carlin are one of a number of big-name single-seater outfits to enter MSA Formula, and Norris, who is expected to be one of the youngest drivers on the grid, says their rich heritage was a deciding factor in joining the Surrey-based outfit.

“I’m really excited to be driving with Carlin next year. They are a great team with a brilliant history and I can’t wait to get going,” said Norris.

“You only have to look at the list of names they have helped through the years – such as Sebastian Vettel and Daniel Ricciardo – to know you are in good hands with a chance to progress to the top.”

An impressive 2014 campaign saw Norris finishing third in the Ginetta Junior Championship with four race wins and the Rookie Cup title, as well as adding to his impressive karting CV with success in the CIK-FIA KF World Karting Championship.

“It’s been a brilliant season, but I’m already thinking about next season,” he added. “I want to keep learning and working hard and hopefully I can keep progressing.

“We think we’ll be really strong and we’re definitely entering MSA Formula with the intention of winning it.”
