Caterham Academy - Motorsport & Trackdays - The Lotus Forums Jump to content


Recommended Posts

OK - I know we are a Lotus forum, but I know for certain people on here are racing Caterhams and it's not like I am talking Porsche...

 

So, has anyone done the Caterham Academy? I was watching one of Jonny's (The Pits) videos earlier and it got me thinking about racing. But racing as a complete novice. It looks like the Caterham Academy supports just that - people with only track day experience and no race or ARDS licences.

 

Has anyone got any experience or gone through the ranks?

You know Lotus do it right? The Lotus Academy, learn to drive with Martin Donnelly.

Isn't that (Lotus Academy) a driving skills school type of thing, whereas the Catarham Academy is actually a fully blown, nobby (as in newbie) race series? Two different things.

 

Currently torn between the Lotus 3 days Academy session or 2bular headers for my Evora - both cost about the same!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Yes looks like you're right I didn't realise what the Caterham one was.

 

The Driving at the Lotus academy is really worth it if you ask me. Ive done the first and a bit of the second and it made me want an Elise! The second one I soon realised the Evora S was more car than my current skill set! 

 

If you are thinking about doing all 3 days I would ask Bibs if there are any deals to be had.

Caterham Academy is a race series mate. I've a pal who races in it and I've watched a couple of his races, he loves it. Jonny on here also races a Caterham but I think he's a few series above the Academy now.

Yea spent a bit of time chatting to them last week. Looks like a good starting point, bit more novice than the Lotus options - new racers only. Was hoping to find someone who's done it here.
