Caterham announces its karting programme

Article by Christian A., on January 19, 2012

Caterham has just announced its plans to add a karting category in its well-established motorsport operation. Thank to the introduction of a Caterham Motorsport-run karting championship in 2013, the British company will give young drivers a chance to take their first steps in a career. Caterham Motorsport Manager, Simon Lambert, said: "We've built a strong reputation for providing terrific value for money in motorsport through great cars and a playing field so even you could put a spirit level on it."

"Now we'd like to use this wealth of knowledge and expertise in karting by establishing a cost-effective series that will combine fun, technology and great competition elements that we think are beginning to be overlooked in kart racing.”

For those who don’t know, Caterham Motorsport established its first one-make championship for the legendary Seven back in 1986 and not its UK operation alone features five fully-subscribed series.

These series include the renowned Academy, which is unique in having created almost 1,000 brand new racing drivers since its inception in 1995. For those who don’t know, last year, the company unveiled its first sports prototype racer, the SP/300.R, which will star in its own one-make championship starting next season.
