Caterham to Showcase F1 Car During Free Silverstone Race Event
Scheduled to take place on October 19-20 at the Silverstone track, the event will include the final rounds of the Caterham Superlight R300, Supersport, Tracksport and Roadsport championships, as well as the Pistonheads Caterham Academy, which means loads of sportscar racing fun.
In addition to watching these one-make series races, spectators will also get a rare chance to see Caterham’s Formula One Team car in action outside an FIA-owned event. The single-seater will be driven by Caterham F1 reserve driver Alexander Rossi at lunchtime on both days, so make sure you don’t skip breakfast.
“Making Caterham accessible at every level is part of our key philosophy for the brand and a free race event like this will do that, plus much more besides. In pure racing terms, it simply doesn’t get any better than Caterham racing – it might not have the glamour of F1 but there is genuine talent in club racing and nowhere is that more apparent than in single-make racing, where skill is the defining factor rather than off-track battles of technology and strategy. It’s exciting, ‘seat of the pants’ stuff and I hope people who come to this race meeting get a taste of our passion for the sport . The event will also be a rare opportunity to see an F1 car in action for free,” said Caterham’s chief motorsport officer Simon Lambert.
