The wait for the Caterham SP/300R track car is getting a bit tiresome for those who have already ordered it. But Caterham just announced the dates for the car’s first outings to cheer them up!
There will be a series of events starting from August when customers, racing drivers and trackday enthusiasts will get their hands on the Sp300 prototype to see what it’s like driving a 300bhp, 180mph purpose-built racing machine. Customers who have already placed orders will be given priority booking slots, after which the extensive list of people who have registered an interest with Caterham will be offered one of the strictly limited drives.
- Saturday, August 27 at Donington Park
- Wednesday, September 7 at Donington Park

Caterham Motorsport Manager, Simon Lambert, said: “There has been a huge amount of interest in this car since we unveiled it at the start of the year. It will be fantastic to get it on track this summer and we can’t wait to see the look on people’s faces when they try it for the first time. We are confident it will be everything they expect and more.”
The SP/300.R will be built in a newly-equipped facility neighbouring Caterham’s existing factory in Kennet Road, Dartford. The building became available earlier this year and will allow the build team to work alongside the Company’s main engineering base.
