Serralles joins Carlin for second season in Indy Lights

Puerto Rican driver Felix Serralles has secured a return to the Indy Lights championship for 2016, signing with Carlin Racing.

Serralles, 23, took a maiden race victory in his rookie Lights campaign with Belardi last year and finished the season seventh overall.

Prior to that, he had competed on the European scene for several years with Fortec - including a 2012 season where he battled two Carlin drivers for the British F3 title.

"We’ve raced against Felix for many years now, both in Europe and last season in Indy Lights," said team boss Trevor Carlin.

"He’s a driver we’ve long admired and I know from watching his career the potential he has. It’s fantastic that instead of racing against him we now have the opportunity to work with Felix and see what we can achieve together.

Serralles joins the previously-announced returnee Ed Jones in the Carlin stable for the British squad's second year on the American scene.

Jones and ex-F1 driver Max Chilton represented the team in Lights in 2015, both winning races and helping secure the runner-up spot in the teams' championship.

Serralles said: "I have wanted to be a part of this great team for a number of years while I was racing in Europe.

"I am really pleased this opportunity has now presented itself for me and I look forward to bringing home trophies with Carlin this year."
