Karting prodigy Sargeant to join British F4 powerhouse Carlin

American youngster Logan Sargeant will make his full-time switch to single-seaters by entering the 2017 British F4 season with Carlin.

Sargeant, who is part of Infinity Sports Management alongside the likes of George Russell, David Beckmann and Max Fewtrell, had a highly-successful karting career, scoring several titles on home soil and in Europe as well.

In 2015, he became the junior world champion before making a step up to the senior OK class and immediately claiming the WSK Champions Cup trophy.

He also has two SKUSA SuperNationals titles from 2011 and 2014 in the classes TaG Cadet and TaG Junior respectively.

Sargeant already made his single-seater debut in the F4 United Arab Emirates at the end of last year and has collected 12 podiums in 13 races so far.

Sargeant will spend 2017 in the UK-based F4 series, joining perennial frontrunners Carlin.

“I am really looking forward to this coming season with Carlin. They have won the Championship two years in a row so they are the obvious team to compete with in the British Formula 4 championship,” Sargeant said.

“It’s going to be a very exciting year, and we are all going to be pushing to make it three titles in a row; I will do everything possible behind the wheel to make that happen.

“Carlin has shown their dominance in the testing that I have done with them, and have been a very professional team to work with.

“We have a great environment around us with great people, now we just need to apply those things on the track and win another championship!”

Carlin took the first two titles in the championship’s history with Lando Norris and fellow Infinity driver Fewtrell respectively.

Sargeant is the second driver announced by Carlin as he joins Finn Patrik Pasma.

The team also announced a third driver in Lucas Alecco Roy, who will debut in racing, having previously competed in dressage.
