Caterham returns for 2019 with brilliant new PalmerSport Edition

Tuesday, December 18 2018

PalmerSport, the world's greatest driving event, will be even more sensational in 2019 with the inclusion of a very special new Caterham Seven developed by Jonathan Palmer himself, the exclusive Caterham PalmerSport Edition

Palmer explained: "The Caterham Seven was first in our PalmerSport line up over 20 years ago, and was a highlight for many years. Our East circuit at Bedford Autodrome was even designed as the perfect environment for our guests to explore the Caterham's performance to the limits and beyond. I have always been a huge fan of the Caterham's ability to put the biggest grins on faces, as its simple minimalist layout of front engine and rear wheel drive is just perfect for controlling the opposite lock slides that we all love to master.  

"For 2019 I wanted to reintroduce Caterham to the East circuit, but with a fleet of not just brand new cars, but cars developed to our own unique specification, to provide the very best ever driving experience. So how are we achieving this? Firstly with the biggest engine ever in a Caterham - a 2.5 litre normally aspirated motor providing instant throttle response and loads of mid-range torque, so balancing the car on the throttle will be a skill everyone can relish. With more power than ever before at PalmerSport - a full 200bhp - the lightweight Caterham will accelerate so quickly that we've fitted the brilliant SADEV paddle shift gearbox for the first time too, so you can flick your way up and down the gears leaving your hands on the wheel for all the opposite lock you'll need!

"And there's a lot more. I wanted every aspect of the Caterham PalmerSport Edition to contribute to a sublime driving experience. The larger chassis will provide a bit more space and rigidity, new seats will hold you better, and the suspension is developed to make drifting an absolute delight, with lighter steering too for flick-wrist control. Never before will have chasing lap times been so much fun and I can't wait to see our guests' faces as they climb out!"

The Caterham PalmerSport Edition will form part of a super-strong car roster at PalmerSport in 2019, alongside other exclusive machines including the F1-inspired F3000 single-seater and Le Mans-flavoured JP-LM sports prototype, plus another brand new top-tier addition yet to be announced - the exact details of PalmerSport's full 2019 line-up will be revealed soon.
Our season commences on Thursday 28 February. To be amongst the first to sample the new fleet contact the PalmerSport Sales Team on 01403 733999 or email [email protected] for booking information. Visit the official website at www.palmersport.com
