sees the formation of one of the UK’s most exciting partnerships in
drifting, with the coming together of SATS Motorsport and Lucas Oils Products
(UK) to create the Lucas Oils UK Drift Team. SATS Motorsport has worked with
some of the biggest names in motorsport, developing their Supra into a world
class competition car. Having developed a finely tuned 1000bhp engine with
Cosworth in 2011 it was essential that it be well looked after. Lucas Oil
Products (UK) were able to supply the team with oils that allowed them to push
the car to its absolute maximum, without fear of damage or wear to various
components. As a result, it only seemed right that the two team up to push the
car even further in the 2013 season.

Website: Albert Carter
Driver(s): Albert Carter
Carter was born in Hammersmith Hospital London in April 2003 to parents, Andy
and Sarah Carter.
Recognizing the need for a good education, Andy and Sarah provided him with
private tutorage since he was just two years old. Motorsport is very important
to the family but education must be priority!
At just six weeks old, he was introduced to the world of motorsport when he was
taken to Santa Pod Raceway, the home of European Drag Racing in England. As
Andy sat him proudly on a barrel on Nitro his hope was that his son would grow
to love the motorsport environment and one day, express a desire to himself
become a champion like his Father. Trips to the Pod became common in Albert’s
early years, along with visits to tracks in Germany,
Finland, Sweden, Norway
as Andy Carter pursued his FIA European Top Fuel Dragster schedule. Andy Carter
(www.andycarter.net) has been participating in motorsport since he was 11 years
old and is still heavily involved now, being Europe’s most successful FIA Top
Fuel Driver and having won the FIA European Top Fuel Championship 4 times. Mum
Sarah Carter is also from a motorsport family.
Albert started quad bike riding aged just two and was bought his first Zip
Bambino Kart at three years old. At four he started karting more earnestly,
initially getting seat time in the pits at the race tracks where his Dad was
competing on the European FIA series. In August 07 he then started attending
Rye House Cadet Club in England,
learning and getting track time on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
In October 08 the family went to America to help Albert get more
experience in Karting. He attended private school whilst there but weekends and
after school hours, were spent getting seat time at kart tracks or in the large
American car parks. In December 08 he competed at his first proper race meeting
at the world famous Daytona International Speedway, spending 4 days at the
track practicing, qualifying at then racing on Sunday. What a place to have
your debut race!
Back in England
from February 09,Albert gained valuable seat time at tracks all over England
Including Bayford Meadows, Tilbury, PFI, Wilton Mill and Red Lodge. In May 09
at just 6 years old Albert was talent spotted by Dan
Faulkner of Zip Kart and in August was signed up by Martin Hines to their
driver development program. Zip Kart have helped bring through many stars in
Motorsport including, David Coulthard (F1), Anthony Davidson (F1), Gary Paffett
(McClaren F1 Tester), Jason Plato (BTCC), Luke Hines(BGT), Mike Conway (Brit
F3) and Lewis Hamilton (F1) .
2010 was again spent learning and gaining valuable seat time at tracks all over
England with some time also
spent Karting in America.
In April 2011 Albert turned 8 and then spent the next 12 weeks competing at
club level to gain the 12 signatures needed to gain a National A Kart License,
which allows him to compete at the highest level the British Championship for 8
to 13 year olds. Albert joined the British Super 1 Championship at the last 3
rounds, Clay Pigeon, Row Rah and Wilton Mill and did not disappoint!
2012 and Albert was just 9 years old. He finished a fantastic second in the
TVKC Championship, the toughest Club Championship in the UK. He also
achieved many podiums, poles, fastest laps and got his best finish at British
Championship level when he finished 10th at Shenington.
2013 and Albert is 10 years old. Early in the year Albert won the TVKC Comer
Winter Championship. He has also won many Finals all over the UK, achieved many podiums, poles, fastest laps
and a track record at PFI the fastest circuit in the UK. Another big achievement for a
10 year old when he set fastest lap at the British GP which is the biggest one
of race of the year and then in November the big one! when Albert won the TVKC
IAME Championship the toughest club championship in the country.
2014 will see Albert compete in the MSA British IAME Championship, LGM
Championship and at least 23 club races.
Away from karting, Albert is a real outdoor boy who loves playing football,
riding his bike and generally not staying still! Since 6 years old If you ask
Albert what is wants to be, the answer comes back almost immediately ‘an F1
Albert Carter is definitely a name to look out for in the future!
