Caterham Motorsport has announced the calendars for its five domestic race championships for the 2016 season. The calendar takes in the entry-level Caterham Academy, which enters its 22nd season next year, as well as the hugely competitive, single-make series for Roadsport, Tracksport, Supersport and Superlight R300-S models.
The Academy again features two sprints – at Aintree and Curborough – and five circuit races, joining forces with the other Caterham categories for the final four meetings at Snetterton, Oulton Park, Croft and Donington Park.
Meanwhile, the non-Academy classes get trips to Anglesey as well as the traditional race abroad, this year at Zolder in Belgium. The R300-S field kicks off its season at the legendary Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, supporting the prestigious British GT Championship.
The schedules for all categories have been carefully planned to include circuits that lend themselves perfectly to Caterham Seven racing, with the right mix of fast sections and tighter, more technical elements.
The full calendar is as follows:
|Superlight R300-S||Roadsport, Tracksport
|Apr 9||Brands Hatch Indy|
|Apr 16||Brands Hatch GP|
|Jul 16||Snetterton 300||Snetterton 300||Snetterton 300|
|Aug 13||Oulton Park||Oulton Park||Oulton Park|
|Oct 15||Donington National||Donington National||Donington National|
Caterham Seven racing has been a staple of the British domestic motor racing scene for decades and is acknowledged as producing some of the most spectacular racing in the world.
The Seven is now raced across the globe in many other domestic championships, including places as far-flung as Malaysia and Colombia. There is a thriving Caterham racing scene in France, where grid sizes regularly rival those in the UK.
Meanwhile, the Academy continues to be one of the most popular entry-level series in the world. Open only to complete novices, only drivers who have never before held a race license may enter. Since its inception in 1995, it has created more than 900 brand new racing drivers.
