Draper Tools Caterham Roadsport Championship

Healthy grids and fantastically close racing typify the Roadsport series which is the follow on from the previous season’s Academy, with the grid almost exclusively reserved for these drivers although there is space for a few invited novices. 

Roadsport cars are based on the Academy car and are powered by a 1.6-litre Ford Sigma engine which provides an impressive power to weight ratio.  Phenomenal handling comes courtesy of the Avon ZZS treaded race rubber developed for Caterham racing.  Yet the cars remain road legal and competitors can, and often do, drive them home from the circuit.

Professional team support is not allowed in Roadsport, so Caterham provide an excellent trackside support team, dedicated to keeping you racing and this is coupled with a great spirit of camaraderie among the drivers.

Roadsport forms the second step of the super-successful Caterham ladder of motorsport, which continues in the same, slightly modified car through to Seven 270R and Seven 310R.

Seven 270R takes the car and racing a stage further with longer races, uprated suspension and the removal of the screen and lights to increase the race car feel whilst Seven 310R is the ultimate evolution of the Academy car, taking competitors into a fourth year of progression, with more power and a limited slip differential.  Drivers can remain in Seven 310R should they wish, or progress to the 420R championship class cars. 

Caterham is an iconic marquee. For more than half a century this lightweight sportscar has been the benchmark for performance and handling and is sold in over 20 countries worldwide. With great support from Caterham Cars and the championship coordinators, drivers in the Roadsport Championship have an unrivalled opportunity to progress their careers in motorsport.

Sharing its calendar with the Seven 270R and Seven 310R championships, plus the mighty Seven 420R at most rounds, this year’s Roadsport calendar features many highlights including a June overseas trip to Zandvoort in Holland.
