Special Edition Caterham Seven Commemorates Iconic Race Circuit


It also celebrates 60 years of the iconic Caterham Seven track weapon.

British carmaker Caterham has produced some of the most exhilarating lightweight track cars on the market. This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Seven, one of its best-known models, which also happens to coincide with the 40th anniversary of the Donnington Park race track. In joint celebration of the two British racing icons, trackday service BookaTrack.com has commissioned a limited-edition Caterham Seven that commemorates the iconic British circuit.

Dubbed the Seven 420R Donington Edition, only 10 examples are being made, each named after a famous section of the track such as Redgate, the Craner Curves and the Old Hairpin. Finished in a striking blue livery with red and white stripes representing the Union Jack, the special edition Caterham Seven 420R Donington Edition packs a 2.0 liter Ford Duratec engine that produces 210 hp, and comes mated to a Sadev 6 speed sequential gearbox with a limited slip differential. It rides on 13-inch ZZR tires and has aero wishbone suspension and race dampers with unique spring rates. Customers can choose between either the standard S3 chassis or the larger SV chassis.

Rounding off the feature set is a superlight cage, aeroscreen, carbon vinyl half doors, a carbon vinyl tonneau and a commemorative plaque. No price for the special edition Caterham Seven was given, but deliveries are set to start in the second half of the year. “As the Caterham Seven celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2017, it's great to see that the Seven is also being personalised to mark Donington Park’s 40th anniversary,” said Caterham CEO Graham MacDonald. “With many of our motorsport series’ taking place at Donington over the years, it’s a fitting celebration to see a limited edition Seven endorsed by one of the most prestigious race tracks in the UK.”

“We are thrilled that Caterham are putting our name to one of their iconic cars, in this year of great celebration for Donington Park,” added Donington Park director Christopher Tate. “We have over the years seen some stunning racing from Caterhams at Donington, and it’s a very fitting link indeed for this commemorative model to be made.”
