MORE INFORMATION

Originally introduced as Roadsport-B in 2002, the Roadsport Championship is the next rung up the ladder from the introductory season in the Caterham Academy Championship. This championship is so popular that entry is limited solely to just the previous year’s Academy drivers and in some cases ‘invited’ novice drivers. This ensures that the level playing field the drivers enjoyed in the Academy are continued for another year, and any rivalries for racing glory can continue for another season! The other advantage of the Roadsport Championship is that it utilises the same car driven in the Academy, albeit with some minor upgrades to extract some additional performance from the car to complement the driver's developing skills. 

Team support is not allowed in the Caterham Roadsport Championship and therefore, like in the Academy, central technical support from Caterham is mandatory.
