Adam Carroll (born 26th October 1982) is a British racing driver, set make his debut in the 2016/17 FIA Formula E Championship with Jaguar Racing.[1] A well versed racing driver across a range of different series, Carroll will serve as Jaguar's team leader for their FE bow, partnered by youngster Mitch Evans.[1]

BackgroundEdit

After starting in karting at the age of ten, Carroll would get his first drive in a racing car in 1999, taking part in the Winter Series of the Formula Palmer Audi Championship.[2] An impressive performance saw the Northern Irishman given a scholarship to compete in Formula Ford in 2000.[2] In 2002 Carroll was pushed into British Formula 3, where he consistently put his year old car among the front runners to win his class outright.[2]

International InspirationEdit

2003 saw Carroll compete in the Formula Three Euroseries as well as the British F3 Championship, with Carroll once again out-performing his car.[2] After budget problems forced him to miss out on the Euroseries in 2004, Carroll bounced back with a drive in the GP2 Series, and was called upon by BAR in F1 to become their reserve driver.[2] Sadly for Carroll, his early season form disappeared to leave him floundering at the back of the field, and in 2006 the Brit looked set to call time on his single seater career, cancelling his contract with Honda F1.[2]

For 2007 Carroll managed to secure a drive in the DTM, although when approached by a struggling GP2 team partway through the season, the Brit decided to focus on reviving his single seater career.[2] Both Championships were disappointing, although the Brit would test, and ultimately sign a deal to compete in the A1 Grand Prix Championship.[2] For the next two seasons, the Brit would compete for Team Ireland, win the title in the 2008/09 Championship, while also getting offers for Formula One, although his sponsorship deals were not enough to cover the costs.[2]

Expanding ExperiencesEdit

For 2010, Carroll managed to get a few drives in the IndyCar Series, although his performances would only be footnotes in his C.V.[2] A year later and Carroll was taking part in the Auto GP Series at select rounds, taking a race win at the season finale, while also getting another one-off drive in GP2.[2] Carroll would then take a break from international racing after the 2011 season, with no one sure when the Brit planned on returning.[2]

In 2014 Carroll finally returned to a major racing series, joining the British GT Championship partway through the season.[2] A full seat was offered to Carroll for 2015, with the Brit continuing on into the 2016 season, taking his first win.[2] A drive in the World Endurance Championship followed in the GTE-AM category for 2016.[2]

Formula E HistoryEdit

Jaguar Racing were determined to test as many drivers as possible when they decided to join the Formula E Championship, taking four drivers to the 2016 Donington Test.[1] Carroll would drive alongside Mitch Evans, Alex Lynn and Harry Tincknell during the test, although he would almost instantly be offered a deal and drive for the full six days.[1] It was later confirmed that Evans would partner him for the season, with Carroll serving as the team's lead driver.
