Donington gears up for caterham race weekend

Monday, August 12 2019

Donington Park will become a Caterham haven this weekend (17-18 August) for a busy weekend on the GP circuit.

The participating series from the British Racing and Sports Car Club will be the Caterham Academy Championship, Caterham Roadsport Championship, Caterham Seven 270R Championship, Caterham Seven 310R Championship, Caterham Seven 420R Championship, BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Championship, BRSCC Mazda MX-5 Super Series, and Teekay Couplings Production GTi Championship.

Top-tier machines can be found within the 420R Championship, the ultimate Caterham racing series. These purpose built machines feature a 2.0 litre engine providing a power output of 175hp horsepower, propelling the cars from 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds. Each race lasts a total of 30 minutes which sees some of the best drivers in the country competing for glory.

The fierce Caterham Seven 310R Championship provides close-knit battles between drivers aiming to take a step towards the top division of Caterham racing. With no windscreen or headlights, plus track focused suspension, the 310R series provides exciting close battles.

Plenty of upcoming talent can be found within the Caterham Academy Championship with drivers taking their first step into motorsport. This specially made racing series helps drivers perfect their race craft in road-legal sports cars with competitors aiming to take the next step towards top-class sports car racing.

In addition to the feast of Caterham races, there will be unmissable action from the Mazda MX-5 championships and VW Golf racing from the Teekay Couplings Production GTi Championship.
