Organisers of the 2012 Caterham Academy series have just one place left in next year’s field and are urging potential competitors to book their place on the grid right away to avoid disappointment.

The Academy, run exclusively to take novice racers through the process of gaining their race license as well as their first full season of competition, has created more than 850 brand new racing drivers since its inception in 1995.

The acclaimed series, which was added to the BRSCC portfolio of championships for the 2011 season, has received high-profile backing from Team Lotus Formula 1 driver, Heikki Kovalainen, who entertained crowds at the wheel of one of Caterham’s iconic Sevens at an event at Duxford earlier this year.

Team Lotus Formula One driver Heikki Kovalainen said: “I drove a Caterham Seven when our partnership with Caterham was launched in April this year and it was a fantastic car to drive. Because it’s lightweight it’s very fast but the engineering team at Caterham have got the handling characteristics finely balanced so the Seven is not a tricky car to drive hard. The best place to do that is on a track and, from what I’ve seen, the Caterham Academy is the perfect way to really learn how to push the cars, get into motorsport and start living the dream.”
