Carlin, beneficiary of a Power Maxed product partnership and, more prominently, renowned race team in single-seater series BRDC British F3, FIA F3, FIA F2 and the EuroFormula Open, had a highly successful weekend at Brands Hatch, 4th-5th August 2018.
The BRDC British Formula Three championship continued with rounds 16, 17 and 18 at Brands Hatch on Sunday 5th August, and proved to be a great weekend for Power Maxed-sponsored team Carlin. The weekend’s team comprised drivers Jamie Caroline (substituting for Clement Novalak), Nicolai Kjaergaard, Sun Yue Yang and, of course, motorsport hero Billy Monger.
After a highly impressive Qualifying session with Caroline on pole, Kjaergaard in second, Monger in third and Yang in 5th, the entire Carlin team were at the sharpest of sharp ends of the pack for the first race later in the day.
The first race of the weekend carried the success of the textbook Qualifying session, with Caroline making a strong start and an even better drive throughout, protecting his P1 position from start to finish. Kjaergaard finished P3 with the fastest lap of the race, placing him on pole for the third and final race of the weekend. Monger and Yang also preserved their top-5 positions from the Qualifying session earlier in the day, finishing 4th and 5th respectively.
Round 17, the second race of the weekend, started with a full reverse grid, putting the forerunning Carlin drivers to the back of the grid on a track which is notoriously difficult for overtakes. Kjaergaard battled his way to P9 while Yang and Monger took P12 and P13 respectively.
The third and final race of the weekend made up for the reverse-grid-setback, with Kjaergaard starting on pole where he would remain to take a lights-to-flag victory, Caroline next to him in a strong P2 and Billy finishing P5. If it wasn’t for Yang’s unfortunate spin causing him to finish P13, Carlin would likely have finished the weekend how they started it; with all four drivers in the top five.
