About the Caterham Seven Driving Experience

The Caterham Seven 270 weighs little more than 500kg. Let that sink in for a minute.

Pushing the Caterham Seven along is a 135bhp Ford Sigma engine, mounted behind the front axle and a manual gearbox. The combined result is a driving experience like no other. The car reacts to your every input, giving you immediate feedback. It's addictive!

Before the Caterham Seven, there's time to get to grips with the race circuit. First as a passenger with an ARDS race instructor to help you learn the circuit. Then, get behind the wheel of the fantastic Porsche Cayman. The mid-engined car is great fun and incredibly rewarding to drive, it gives great driver feedback, accurate, responsive steering and great handling balance.

Croft is the only circuit in the UK to offer a driving experience on track in the Caterham Seven. Caterham has a unique British heritage, with the first prototype being built by the great Colin Chapman in 1957. (For more information on Caterham cars visit www.caterham.com
