Chuklin, from Barnaul, had a brief Rotax Max karting career in Russia before moving to car racing. He spent several months in England and Western Europe testing the Formula Renault 2.0 Tatuus car.[2][3][4][5]

In December 2010, Chuklin tested for the MP Motorsport team in a FR 2.0 Caparo car. For 2011, he signed with MP Motorsport for the complete season in Formula Renault 2.0 Northern European Cup as well as several rounds in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 series.[6] He made his racing debut for the team in the opening round of the Formula Renault NEC[7], which was held at Hockenheimring, and finished twelfth in the first race, retired from the second, and eighteenth in the third.[8][9] Having entered the next two rounds of the Formula Renault NEC[10], with his best finish being twelfth in the second race at Spa-Francorchamps,[9][11] Chuklin raced in the Aragon of the Championnat VdeV, taking three poles, and two race victories; also setting the fastest lap in all three races.[12] He then returned to the Formula Renault NEC[13], and took his first top-ten finish in the series in August, in the second race held at Zandvoort.[9][14] Following that race, he entered the Silverstone round of the Eurocup Formula Renault[15], finishing 24th in race one, and 32nd in race two.[16][17] Chuklin then returned to the Formula Renault NEC, finishing the remaining races[18], and took his best result of the season in the penultimate round at Monza; a sixth place.[9][19] He ended the season having entered the final race of the Eurocup Formula Renault season[20], held at Barcelona; finishing 23rd in race one, and 27th in race two.[16][21] He was classified 13th in the Formula Renault NEC, with 113 points, and 22nd in the Championnat VdeV, with 104 points after the one race weekend competing.[22]

In 2012, Chuklin remained in the Formula Renault NEC with MP Motorsport. The team had joined up with Manor Motorsport, and were competing under the "MP Manor Motorsport" name.[23][24][25] The season did not start successfully; Chuklin retired from four of his first six races, with his best finish in that time being twentieth in the third race at Hockenheim.[9][26] After finishing 16th in the second race at Oschersleben, and retiring from the third,[9] he entered the Moscow round of the Formula Renault Eurocup with Fortec Motorsports[27]; he finished 28th in the first race, and 23rd in the second.[28] Chuklin returned to the Formula Renault NEC at the Red Bull Ring round of the series, finishing 25th in the first race, and retiring from the second.[9] The following round, held at Autodrom Most, saw Chuklin take his only top-10 finish of the season; he finished tenth in the second race.[9][29] Following that event, Chuklin had a viza issues and could not compete in the Formula Renault NEC for the rest of the season. Chuklin switched to the Formula Renault 2.0 Alps for its season finale, held at Barcelona; Chuklin was entered by Team Torino Motorsport[30][31]. He retired from the first race,[32] and finished 22nd in race two.[33][34] He was classified 34th in the Formula Renault NEC, with 23 points.[22]

Chuklin finished third in the second race of European F3 Open Winter Series, held at Jerez.[41] His pace was close to top three during all three rounds of European F3 Open Winter Series[42]. After successful European F3 Open Winter Series and being the fastest driver of Emilio de Villota Motorsport in all testing sessions at Barcelona, Chuklin was looking forward for a successful season[43]. On his debut in the European F3 Open series, which came in the opening round of the season, held at Paul Ricard[44], he finished fifth in race one, and 23rd in race two.[45] Chuklin was hoping to have a better season after a tough start[46].

Then he took a ninth in the first race at Silverstone, and a sixth in the second.[45][49] Chuklin's pace at the end of 2013 was around 20th.

In November 2014, he took part in the 6 Hours of Vallelunga[55]. Chuklin drove Wolf GB08 for Avelon Formula[56] along with Ivan Bellarosa and Luca Pirri Ardizzone. They started from the pole position[57] but had to retire due the engine failure before the stint of Chuklin.[58] It was his first time in Vallelunga, first experience in prototype, and first taste of endurance racing.[59] Later in December Chuklin tested Formula 3 car of European F3 Open Championship with Emilio de Villota Motorsport at Barcelona and showed fifth time[60].

Chuklin started the season-2015 in the European F3 Open Winter Series with Emilio de Villota Motorsport.[61] He took part in two races at Paul Ricard.[62]
