Caterham C400 - 2.4L Ford Duratec Engine

Built from the ground up by Matt Ellis (ex-Team Leos Motorsport employee) over the winter of 2019 / Spring 2020 for experienced Caterham racer Tony Bennett, no expense was spared on this car and it was a further development of his previously incredibly successful Caterham R300 that was campaigned in CSCC Magnificent Sevens, BARC Sevenesque and MSV All-Comers for many years.

This new car enabled Tony to achieve back-to-back overall championship wins in the Castle Combe GT Championship for the 2020 and 2021 seasons, making it the winningest Caterham to have competed in the series to our knowledge, taking many overall and class wins/podiums along the way and with a very strong reliability record.

In addition, Tony's son and current GB3 driver, John Bennett, has also set what is believed to be an unofficial lap record for a Caterham around Castle Combe during testing, posting a time of 1:06.38 and which can be viewed by following the Youtube link at the bottom of this page.
