UK Students Build Caterham Kit Cars
A total of 24, aged between 18 and 30, have spent the last six months building the iconic British pure sportscars in the engineering facility based in the grounds of the Brooklands race track.
The students, which aim to develop a career in the motorsport engineering industry, received the Sevens in component from from Caterham, building the lightweight, topless sportscars from the ground up.
“Caterham has a long history of producing some of the fastest, lightweight sportscars at low cost and remains a great engineering company with its original principles still in place,” said Jonathan Nicholls, Engineering CoVE Manager, who leads the initiative for the Caterham project at Brooklands College. “To have the college students seeing through a project like this and getting to build the cars first-hand provides vast amounts of opportunity for all the students involved, both in gaining vital skills and valuable experience for the future.”
“It’s great to see the students get passionate about a subject, it really brings learning to life. And if we can help inspire some of the students to reach their potential, then that’s an added bonus," said Andy Noble, Sales & Marketing Director at Caterham Cars.
