The car was built for the 2017 Caterham Academy series and registered in January 2017. It was subsequently upgraded and raced in Roadsport for 2018 then to 270R for 2019. Car can be upgraded to 310R specification


It is fully prepared and ready to race or can be enjoyed as a great track day car. Alternatively, it could be turned back into a road car with the addition of a daylight MOT


It recently had a new gearbox (3 races ago), service and the suspension setup to DPR’s race-proven specifications and flat floored. The car has the usual damage associated with 3 years of racing but it still drives superbly. An opportunity to own a front running Caterham at a great price.

The engine runs with Miller CFS 0W30 NT+ engine oil for reduced engine friction and longer engine life as has been changed regularly throughout its life


The car has a Racelogic VBOX HD2 datalogger with OLED display fitted (current cost £2940 new) This can be included with the car by separate negotiation.


The car is in excellent mechanical condition having been professionally prepared by us since its first season in Academy.
