History

Formation

2013 season

For the first season, William Ingram hired Diego Campos, Jonas Phipps and Edgardo Agretha as the team's first, second and third driver respectively. Phipps lost his seat to Franklin test driver Enrique Ruiz. Ruiz himself was recalled to the main team, meaning Agretha could make his debut at the last race of the season.

Ingram struggled for much of 2013, their first points not coming until the US Grand Prix, the 7th of the campaign. Every other team had scored points by the second round. Unsurprisingly they finished the season in 11th place, only ahead of BMW Zyla who were disqualified and had all their points taken away. Consistently qualifying at the back of the grid made the race for points harder. Campos' points at the US and Belgian GPs were thanks, in part, to the rain. However, in the hands of Enrique Ruiz, the team brought home in points in three more races, thanks to Ruiz's ability to qualify the car well up the field.

2014 season

The team retained Diego Campos for 2014, Jonas Phipps moved to Lucas Grand Prix and Edgardo Agretha was released and failed to find a seat elsewhere. Rookies Nikolai Milkovich and Arden Hutchinson took the second driver and test driver seats respectively. The team have replaced BMW with Honda, thanks to a partnership with Franklin F1. The team have chosen 37 and 38 for their career numbers.

The season started more strongly than 2013, Milkovich scoring points in two of the first three rounds.

Partnership with Franklin

Following BMW's initial withdrawal from the sport, Ingram needed to find a new engine supplier. Contact was made with Franklin F1 team boss Jamie Franklin, and an technical partnership was announced. Ingram would take Honda engines for 2014 F1F Virtual Grand Prix Championship and make use of Franklin's facilities. Enrique Ruiz subsequently made the move to Ingram for 3 races towards the end of season 1, before being recalled to the main team. Franklin paid Ingram £1m for Ruiz to move and then return.

Junior series

Ingram GP team boss William Ingram is a director of Kenyon Racing, who are currently competing in the IJGPC. As such, the team have run drivers hand picked by Ingram GP. This includes current driver Yohan Dubois and Ingram's current test driver Edgardo Agretha, who replaced Christos Lostovolos.

For Season 2, Ingram and Kenyon came to an agreement and the team will be renamed Ingram-Kenyon Racing (IKR for short). Yohan Dubois will be joined by Davide Barone.
