Caterham Seven Championship UK to support BTCC at Silverstone in 2023

Caterham has announced that its top-tier racing series, the Caterham Seven Championship UK, will join the British Touring Car Championship support bill at Silverstone on September 23/24 next year. 

Having already announced that it will race with the British Automobile Racing Club in 2023, Caterham will write the latest chapter in the illustrious motorsport history by competing on the TOCA package for the first-ever time. 

In what is poised to be the championship finale for the one-make series next year, a highly skilled grid of Caterham competitors will have the opportunity to showcase their talents not only in front of a bumper trackside audience but also live on ITV4.

Simon Lambert, Caterham’s Chief Motorsport & Technical Officer, said: “To be able to associate ourselves with one of the most prestigious racing series on the planet is an historic landmark moment for our brand.

“Our racers will not only get the opportunity to race at Silverstone, they’ll also be competing on mainstream television and in front of the fantastic crowds that attend BTCC events.”

Alan Gow, BTCC Chief Executive, added: “It’s a great opportunity for the Caterham Seven Championship UK to join the TOCA package for our event at Silverstone next season. 

“I’m sure they will enjoy the great atmosphere and exposure that the BTCC brings with it, whilst our loyal fanbase will enjoy the fantastic entertainment that Caterham racing so often delivers!”

Caterham Motorsport to join BARC for the 2023 season

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.”
