American karting gradaute Logan Sargeant will race in the British Formula 4 series this year for Carlin.
The 16-year-old became junior world karting champion in 2015, and last year continued in karts at senior OK level and won the season-opening WSK Champions Cup.
Over this winter, he has been contesting his maiden single-seater campaign in the new UAE F4 championship with Motopark, where he has claimed a series of second-place finishes behind ADAC F4 driver Jonathan Aberdein.
“I am really looking forward to this coming season with Carlin,” said Sargeant.
“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.
“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.”
Sargeant is joined in Carlin’s British F4 line-up for this year by Finland’s Patrik Pasma, who steps up following a year in Formula Ford 1600, and German Lucas Alecco Roy, a racing novice who previously competed in dressage.
