Max Chilton and longtime girlfriend Chloe Roberts got married this weekend at St Michael’s Church in Betchworth in his home county of Surrey, England.

The likable young couple have been together for years, having gotten engaged last March. They are now embarking on their third season together in North America, as Chilton arrived in the U.S. ahead of the 2015 Indy Lights season with Carlin, where he won his first race on the Iowa Speedway oval in July of that year.

In two seasons in the Verizon IndyCar Series, Chilton’s best runs this year came in back-to-back races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, first with a drive up to seventh from 14th in the INDYCAR Grand Prix and then leading a race-high 50 laps at the 101st Indianapolis 500, before finishing fourth. He’ll have a shot for his first win at the next 500-mile race on the calendar, the ABC Supply 500 (Sunday, 2 p.m. ET, NBCSN) at Pocono Raceway this weekend in the No. 8 Gallagher Chip Ganassi Racing Honda.

A few photos from Chilton’s wedding are below, which saw teammate Scott Dixon and wife Emma and driver coach Dario Franchitti and wife Ellie among those in attendance.

Chilton then already noted the fun part of married life, when receiving traditional English breakfast tea.

Force India Up for Sale?

Rumors about the future of Sahara Force India, already rumored to be changing names soon, took yet another interesting this week as news surfaced about a possible sale of the team to British energy drink firm Rich Energy.

This news also comes as current majority team owner Dr. Vijay Mallya faces developing legal troubles involving money laundering, further adding to the murky environment surrounding a team that has become the “best of the rest” behind Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull in recent years.
