Carlin Buzz Racing will enter the 2020 FIA Formula 3 championship with an all-rookie line-up, after recruiting Clement Novalak, Enaam Ahmed and Cameron Das.
Novalak, 19, has raced for Carlin in the last two years and claimed a pair of wins and eight podiums en route to last year’s British Formula 3 title.
Novalak said on his jump to his new series: “I’m very happy to be back with Carlin for another year and thrilled to be taking on the FIA F3 grid with them.
“I’m really excited to be getting back out on track soon and getting this season started.”
Ahmed, 20, claimed the 2017 British F3 title before taking ninth place in the European series in 2018.
He spent 2019 racing in Japanese Formula 3, classifying third in the championship.
“I’m glad to be home. I can’t think of a team I trust more than Carlin,” Ahmed said.
“They are family, and quite simply if I’m going to win, it’s only going to be with Carlin.”
Das, 19, returns to the Carlin team after his showings with them in British F3 in 2017 that included a fifth-place finish in the championship. He has since raced in EuroFormula Open.
“I’m ecstatic to be back with Carlin this year. Although it’s a new championship, I already most of the Carlin team members so I feel right at home,” Das shared.
“The car looks mega too in all aspects. I’ve been itching to try out a V6 with DRS, so the Bahrain test can’t come soon enough. Even with just sim experience, I’ve found this new generation International F3 very different to what I’m used to, but I’m certainly up for the challenge.
“I’d like to offer a huge thank you to my sponsorship partners this year, and to the Carlin team for making this dream a reality.”
All three drivers will be amongst those in Bahrain, Sakhir for F3’s pre-season test on the 1-3 March.
