Caterham Motorsport has released details about its karting championship, which is designed to restore karting’s reputation as an accessible sport. Caterham Motorsport’s karting championship is open to a maximum of 120 young individuals aged between 13 and 16, all coming from families who might not have considered karting as an option.

The championship will feature a season composed of six one-day events as well as the customized Caterham-designed kart that boasts of durability and quality. For a package price of £4,995+VAT, the championship series promises unequaled value for money and a exceptionally fun experience for racers – as Caterham Motorsport provides technical support for all karts to ensure equality. The championship series will feature the CK-01 kart, which prototype can be viewed Caterham stand (Stand No 2520) at AutoSport International Show at Birmingham’s NEC slated from January 10 to 13.

Tony Fernandes, chief executive of Caterham Group, remarked that Caterham Karting will make karting accessible to everyone, without losing any element of the competition and experience. He noted that with tight regulations and total transparency, controlled costs, Caterham Karting will offer the best value and will be the most competitive and most fun karting “in the world.”

He described the series not as another new karting championship, but as a revolution in motor racing. The championship kart series will be open to novices only, thereby providing a championship platform from which young individuals can either launch a motorsport career or just enjoy themselves.

The championship’s all-inclusive season package includes the ready-to-race kart itself, guidance on the acquisition of the ARKS race license, a paddock trolley and entry to the six-event season. Caterham Motorsport promises to ensure that unsporting conduct is eliminated in the series.
