Caterham Motorsport, the UK’s largest factory-backed family of championships, will move to the British Automobile Racing Club for the 2023 season and beyond.
Moving across from the BRSCC, the Kent-based sports and racing car manufacturer Caterham Cars Ltd has become a powerhouse on the national motorsport scene since its inception in 1995, operating five championships which currently boasts nearly 200 registered drivers.
Furthermore, the hugely successful ‘Caterham Academy’ novice-exclusive series has seen more than 1,200 ordinary people become racing drivers.
Building on the foundation of the Academy, Caterham has assembled a ‘ladder’ of championships progressing through Roadsport, Seven 270R, and Seven 310R to its flagship series, the Caterham Seven Championship UK, a one-class series for the brand’s top Seven 420R race car which is on pace with GT4 cars.
Characterised by big grids, low running costs and exceptionally close racing; tightly controlled regulations ensure that Caterham Motorsport provides one of the most level playing fields in motor racing.
Simon Lambert, Chief Motorsport and Technical Officer for Caterham, said: “We have enjoyed a long and successful partnership with BRSCC for more than three decades and I could not be more grateful for the work that the dedicated HQ and regional teams have done to keep our customers racing.
“Making the move to a new club has not been an easy decision, but as we continue to grow and step up our service, we feel the BARC are more closely aligned with our goals.”
“We are thrilled that Caterham Cars have chosen to race with BARC,” added Ben Taylor, BARC Chief Executive. “This is really positive news and demonstrates the work that has gone into evolving our race organisation business over the last few years.
“We have put a great focus on delivering for our Championships and Competitors, which has led to improved calendars, a commitment to quality live streaming and a financial model that returns a proportion of the revenue to successful Championships. We can’t wait to start racing with Caterham Motorsport.”
