Ugo Ugochukwu joins Carlin for 2022 F4 British Championship

22.12.2021: Carlin is pleased to announce that American driver Ugo Ugochukwu has signed with the team for the 2022 Rokit F4 British Championship Certified by FIA. The 14-year-old karter will turn 15 on the eve of the championship and is the first driver to be announ


Carlin is pleased to announce that American driver Ugo Ugochukwu has signed with the team for the 2022 Rokit F4 British Championship Certified by FIA. 

The 14-year-old karter will turn 15 on the eve of the championship and is the first driver to be announced in Carlin’s 2022 line-up.

 


The ADD Motorsport managed driver has already marked himself out as once to watch with a successful career in karting. 


Starting at the tender age of six, Ugochukwu went on to win the 2014 Micro Rok Championship, the 2017 International Open X30 Mini Championship and the 2018 Challenge of the Americas Rok Junior Championship.


A strong season saw the young karter claiming the 2020 FIA OKJ European Championship further cementing his karting credentials.
 


Ugochukwu’s efforts have already attracted the attention of McLaren Racing with the Formula 1 team signing up the youngster earlier this year.  The New York born racer has been signed to the Woking based team on a long-term driver contract.
 


In 2021, Ugochukwu has raced in the FIA European OK Senior class claiming seventh overall.  Pole position in the World Championship and fourth at the chequered flag concluded a final strong season of karting.
 


Carlin has a strong record in the F4 British Championship.  The team’s then driver Lando Norris won the inaugural season in 2015 (formerly MSA Formula) before Max Fewtrell claimed the title in 2016 and Jamie Caroline in 2017.  After a one-year sabbatical from the championship Carlin returned in 2019 with Zane Maloney who claimed the title also in his rookie season.  Carlin’s 2020 rookie Zak O’Sullivan lost out on championship honours by just four points after a dramatic season finale.
 


"I'm really excited to move up to British F4 next season and follow in the footsteps of many talented drivers,” said Ugochukwu.  “I feel very comfortable with Carlin and our pre-season preparations are already going well.  There will be a lot to learn but I have a great team around me to help deal with all the challenges.  I can't wait to get going."
 


Speaking about the team’s newest signing, Trevor Carlin said,
“Ugo is an exciting new talent and we’re delighted to have him with this for this first step on the single-seater ladder.  Despite his very young age, Ugo is doing a great job in winter testing. He’s quietly taking it all in and making big improvements with every session; the sign of a driver full of potential.  
 


“The F4 British Championship is a fantastic series in which to learn and the incorporation of the new Tatuus T-421 makes the series even more relevant.  The new car will be a real leveller for all teams and drivers but having produced four Driver Champions and numerous Team titles, we’re determined to start this new era of F4 as strongly as possible.”
