The famous 'Carlin' name that has been present in various motorsport disciplines across the last 25 years has now disappeared.

The squad has been renamed to Rodin Motorsport ahead of the new racing season.

New Zealand-based manufacturer Rodin Cars became the majority shareholder in the team last year and the squad was rebranded to Rodin Carlin.

However, team founder Trevor Carlin departed the outfit late last year and it has since been rebranded to Rodin Motorsport.

The Farnham-based squad will compete in the FIA Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships this year.

Several current F1 drivers, including Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz and George Russell all have history with the team when it ran under the moniker of Carlin.

The team will enter this year's F2 championship with Red Bull junior Zane Maloney and Super Formula champion Ritomo Miyata.

Speaking about the rebranded, team owner David Dicker said: “I am thrilled to lead Rodin Motorsport in this new era of our racing history.

“The team have a tremendous racing pedigree which we will continue to build upon moving forward.

“The 2024 season is once again going to be an exciting year for everyone at Rodin Motorsport and I for one can’t wait to get back on track where we belong.

“Our core values remain the same and we continue to strive to be the leading junior motorsport team.

“Our commitment to the drivers, championships and staff remains unwavering; we are here to race, develop drivers and keep winning.”
