A new team name will be present on the 2014 FIA Formula 3 European Championship grid this season in the form of Jagona Ayam with Carlin. Representing the team will be Indonesian Sean Gelael, Italian Antonio Giovinazzi and Briton Tom Blomqvist. The three drivers will consequently race in the distinctive brand colors of Jagonya Ayam, in yellow Dallara F312s prepared by multiple F3 champions Carlin.

All three drivers have previous experience in the championship, with Blomqvist taking three podiums in 2013. Having contested two seasons in the championship, Blomqvist’s experience will be invaluable to both Gelael and Giovinazzi who enjoyed their first season in Formula 3 last year. Although the trio will make their racing debuts with Carlin this year, all three have experience of working with the team from winter testing in Jerez and Valencia in December.

“I am really excited to be joining Carlin,” says Gelael. “We had quite a few good days of testing in December at Jerez and Valencia. The team is so professional and gives a young driver everything he needs to succeed. I will be part of a very strong team at Carlin so my aim is to learn as much as I can from my team-mates, and we can all move forwards together. I feel for 2014 I can start to focus on getting some good results and put Indonesia in the picture in one of motor racing’s most competitive championships.”

Trevor Carlin adds, “We are very proud to be able to represent the Jagonya Ayam brand in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. We feel the combination of experience and potential of Jagonya Ayam with Carlin can compete for championship honors. This is a massive commitment from the sponsor and we are proud to be chosen as the team to take these Sean, Tom and Antonio forwards in their careers.”
