Exclusively for new drivers (those that have never held a race licence before), the Caterham Academy is the perfect entry point to Motorsport - now in its 16th sold-out year!
Established in 1995, the Caterham Academy is a novice race series that introduces NEW drivers to Motorsport by providing the whole season as a complete package, including the road-legal race car, gaining a competition licence, entry to all the events, and Caterham staff on-hand to guide the owner through the whole process from building the car to what to do and where to be at an event.
- Every driver is a novice
- All the cars are new and identical

The Caterham Academy co-ordinator is on hand at every stage to ensure competitors have the right paperwork, that it's completed correctly and then takes it away to ensure everything goes to the right place; she will also direct competitors at events so that they are in the right place and the right time!
At the end of the year, the car can easily be upgraded to the Roadsport and Supersport rungs of the Motorsport ladder, enabling competitors to continue their Caterham racing career (as Academy is only open to complete novices, they can only compete in it for one year).
The complete Caterham Academy package starts at £19,450
