This car was built by Van der Kooi Sportscars (Caterham importer for The Netherlands).
The chassis originates from the Caterham Academy Cup.
A relatilatively strong and maintenance-friendly Ford Zetec engine was built and fitted by Hessel van der Glind (from Postma Autosport).
The only point of attention concerns changing down from the 3rd to the 2nd gear (all other changing up and down is perfectly in order). At most circuits you don’t need second gear anyway because of the engine’s very torquey character (230 Nm max).
During the cars’ last season it was used very succesfully in racingh (8 podiums out of 9 races in the Dutch Pro-Seven Series) and before that in slalom (lots of wins at the Dutch Slalom Championhip).
Lapping the Zandvoort circuit in the 1.55’s on semi-slicks never was a problem. During a Intrax clinic at Zandvoort drivers like Tom Coronel and Donald Molenaar tested the car and were very enthousiastic about the road behaviour and, particularly, the fun aspect.
If required we will sell our custom-built car trailer as well.
