After ample warm up via the Team Enduro event in March, Caterham Motorsport brings its competitors back to Silverstone and the International circuit for the opening rounds of four of their five championships on the roster. With around 120+ drivers expected from one area of the paddock alone, the racing is set to provide more thrills, action, endless overtaking and plenty of excitement – all things that Caterham racing usually provides in spades! Contesting their opening rounds here will be the Caterham Roadsport, Seven 270R, Seven 310R and Seven 420R championships, each one providing a step up in performance and competition from the last. There may even be one or two scores to settle from the Enduro too!
Sharing the limelight with Caterham this weekend will be the TCR UK Touring Car Championship & Dunlop Touring Car Trophy, a superb series that accommodates a wide variety of contemporary current and ex-BTCC and WTCC machinery, as well as just about any form of homologated TCR touring car. They are joined on their own individual package by the Volkswagen Racing Cup, an excellent stepping stone for drivers looking to move upwards into touring car racing and a fitting addition to the timetable alongside TCR UK & TCT. There’s more tin-top style saloon car action in store from the Production GTI Championship as well as the first appearance of the season from the Civic Cup, while single seater fans will also get their first taste of the year of the superb Avon Tyres National Formula Ford Championship, still a key proving ground for young drivers looking to forge a professional racing career.
