The British sportscar maker, who has recently joined forced with Lotus to expand business, will celebrate its 100th race at Wiltshire circuit, Castle Combe, on August 13.

Twenty-five years after Caterham’s iconic Seven first raced at Combe, drivers in the Caterham Graduates Championship will take part in a 20-minute race as part of the August Cup race weekend on the track described by Autosport Magazine as “the best club racing circuit in Britain”. This is racing pedigree at its best! And that’s what makes owning a Caterham a very special treat, even if you don’t drive ti very often.
