Carlin has confirmed that Anglo-Swiss driver Callum Voisin will join the team for the 2022 GB3 in Partnership with the BRDC Championship season. The 15-year-old, who spent 2021 racing in the Ginetta Junior championship with great success, will make the switch to single seaters with the current champions, and becomes the first driver in Carlin’s 2022 line-up to be announced.
Voisin’s credentials are already impressive, despite his young age. His debut season in the Ginetta Junior Championship saw him finish sixth overall, securing seven victories, 11 podiums and two pole positions along the way. Voisin was the joint-highest race winner throughout the season with a particularly dominant display at Brands Hatch, where he took a clean sweep of all three race victories on offer; the only driver to achieve the accolade throughout the year.
Prior to his Ginetta campaign, Voisin enjoyed a busy karting career in multiple series including finishing third in the British championship last year, with fourth the previous season, becoming the English Champion and representing Team UK at the world finals.
Callum has already participated in a test day with the Carlin team and taken part in simulator sessions ahead of a full winter test programme.
Voisin becomes the first driver to be announced in Carlin’s line-up for the 2022 season, which will see the introduction of the brand-new Tatuus MSV-022 car, complete with the halo design for the first time.
Voisin commented: “I am extremely excited to be joining Carlin for the 2022 GB3 Championship. They have impressed me this year with their dominance, and I was blown away by their professionalism when I tested with them. I just want to say thank you to Edge Sporting Management for putting this deal together with Carlin; I cannot wait to get started.”
Team Principal Trevor Carlin added: “We are so pleased to welcome Callum to the team. We’ve watched him race over the course of the 2021 season and been impressed with his driving and his general attitude in the paddock. I have no doubt that Callum will be able to integrate himself well with our GB3 team and hit the ground running over the winter test season and when the championship begins next year.”
