mORE INFORMATION

Supersport introduced a new driving element with the addition of a limited-slip differential. Aside from the additional grip out of low-speed corners, this provides a greater degree of control over the rear of the car with the throttle. To make the most of an LSD, more power is required and the Supersport engine is increased to 140bhp through more performance focused camshafts and a cold air intake system.

In line with the increased level of performance of both the car and the drivers, team support is allowed (but not mandatory) in the Caterham Supersport Championship.
