Carlin agrees deal with Rodin Cars for majority shareholding

Team competes across junior motorsport ladder, including F2 and F3.

Carlin Motorsport will rebrand as Rodin Carlin following investment from Australian businessman and entrepreneur David Dicker.

Contract:

  • Rodin Cars becomes the majority shareholder of Carlin
  • Trevor and Stephanie Carlin will continue to lead the team

Context: The British team are a historic name in junior motorsport, with current Formula One drivers Kevin Magnussen, Carlos Sainz Jr., Lando Norris and George Russell all having driven for the team on their journey to the top series. Add to that world champions Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel, and you have a team steeped in history.

Comment: David Dicker, chairman of Rodin Carlin, said: “Our investment in the team emphasises our intent in the motorsport sector, which has been a huge passion for me for many years. Trevor and I have an obsession with performance and competition that will cement the place of the Rodin Carlin team at the front in the coming seasons.”

Coming next: The Rodin Carlin team will make its competitive debut in support of the Bahrain Grand Prix on 5th March. This will not be the first time the brand has been visible on a Carlin car though, as Rodin Cars has supported the career of Red Bull junior Liam Lawson, who drove for the British team last season.
