Carlin is looking to make it's Indy Car Series debut in 2017 by joining forces with long-time entrant and current KVSH Racing co-owner Kevin Kalkhoven.

Carlin is looking to expand it's depth in American racing after entering Indy Lights two years ago. Kalkhoven is set to end his team ownership collaboration with Jimmy Vasser.

Team boss Trevor Carlin confirmed his interest.

"It's being worked on, but it's a long way from being a done deal," he told Autosport.

"Nothing would change apart from we would be involved. It's a way off yet and there are still some pieces of the jigsaw to put in place."

When asked whether Max Chilton would drive for them in 2017 due to his father's links with the team or not, Carlin said: "Max wants to be part of at least a two-car team,"

"His career is separate to the Carlin plan, and I'd see him only as a possibility for 2018, not 2017, if at all."
