Supporting one of the biggest motor racing events on the calendar Carlin’s Indy Lights team have an exciting week of racing in prospect as the 2016 Freedom 100 takes place at the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway; lining up alongside the 100th running of the prestigious Indy 500. At the helm for Carlin once again will be Championship leader Ed Jones, race winner Felix Serralles and American Rising Star Racing driver Neil Alberico; the three strong team have already delivered great results since the season started back in March and they will be looking to continue their form over what is the biggest event on the calendar. 

As one of the highlights of the season the 2.5 mille Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a challenge for even the most experienced of racers and with the event recently announced as a sell out the weekend will no doubt be a spectacle for everyone involved. 

Currently leading the championship Jones said, “This weekend is special for a number of reasons and I’m really looking forward to getting it underway. We had a good test here on Monday and I feel confident with where we are going in to practice and qualifying. Last year we struggled a little because it was our first time here so it’s nice to come back with the wealth of knowledge and experience we have gained and have another go at it.” 

Race winner Serralles added, “Driving at IMS is always special. It’s the only time we get to go over 200mph and testing has gone really well for me – I focused on myself and tried to find that comfort zone in the car that is just right. I’m excited to get back in the car and love the feeling of driving around here because there are always challenges you want to meet to help you go flat through the corner. If you’re not on the edge, you’re not going fast enough here.” 

Rising Star racing driver Neil Alberico said of the upcoming weekend, “I’m psyched to finally be running at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. It takes every ounce of confidence you have to go flat around this place and I love that! The race is a one of a kind and it would be great to have a strong weekend around here and push hard for the win for the Carlin team.”Free practice for the Mazda IndyLights presented by Cooper Tyres Freedome 100 will get underway on Thursday before a half hour qualifying shoot out later in the day. The Freedom 100 takes place on Friday at 12.30 and will see the field of 16 Indy Lights drivers go head to head for round 8 of the 2016 season.
