Third rung on the Caterham ladder, strips the former Academy cars of lights & screen, but adds race springs/dampers, making it more of a pure racing machine. Team support allowed.
Supersport sees the ultimate evolution of the Academy car. The 2011 season will see cars that were mostly from the 2008/9 Academy series, now sporting wide-track suspension, race springs and dampers, and with the lights and windscreen removed. These changes drop the lap times by 2-3 seconds. The car can easily be converted back to being road-legal between rounds.
As with all Caterham racing, the tight technical regulations ensure a level playing field of cars. Race meetings are all double-header rounds of 30 minute races.
This is the first level at which team support is allowed, for those that prefer to just arrive and drive.
