#50YoC: Countdown to the Caterham 50th Festival

It’s not long now until we celebrate our big 50th Birthday, and we can’t wait to see you there!

The three-day festival sees non-stop Seven circuit action at Donington Circuit.  All five of our Caterham Motorsport Championships will be on track, along with the Magnificent Seven Series and Graduates Racing Club.  Off-track, you’ll find our biggest ever timeline – celebrating a variety of vehicles from our fifty-year history.  That’s not all, we’ll be looking to the future with the new EV Seven development car and the Project V Concept both in attendance. 

If you are arriving in a Caterham/Lotus Seven or Caterham 21, you can use the exclusive discount code: 50YoC7 

Please note - anyone who uses the discount code above must arrive in the vehicles mentioned, otherwise you will be charged the full on-the-day price. Tickets can be ordered through the following link:  https://www.donington-park.co.uk/2023/september/caterham

A full list of open times and the race schedule will be shared in the Facebook Group in the lead-up to the festival.

Saturday 2nd September – Track Parade and Paddock Party

Kicking off with qualifying throughout the morning, and races in the afternoon – there will be action straight from the word go!   Parking for over 500 Seven owners will be available on the Tarmac lake, where you’ll find the Caterham Clubhouse, giant timeline, Caterham and Lotus Seven Club and plenty more. 

In the evening a great gathering of Sevens will take place as we descend onto Donington with a track parade.  All Sevens who attended the Saturday race event will be welcomed onto the circuit for the parade lap and group photo. 

Immediately after, all in attendance, race drivers and teams and Caterham / Seven owners will be welcomed to our infield Paddock Party with live music.  Fingers crossed for good weather!


Sunday 3rd September – Race Day 

Sunday will see the concluding rounds of the Caterham Motorsport Championships, with the Academy, Roadsport, 270R and 310R drivers battling for the crown!  That’s not all, the CSCUK racers will be competing for those all-important points ahead of their final round with the BTCC at Silverstone. 

All of the off-track activities will remain in place – so if you couldn’t make it Saturday there is still plenty to see! 


Monday 4th September - Seven Only Track Day 

It wouldn’t be a Caterham event without a little dynamic action.  On Monday 4th we are hosting a special Seven-only track day which is open to all types of Caterham’s and Lotus Sevens – race cars included!

Bring your Seven for a day of fun, and jump in with our instructors for some seriously hot laps in the 420CUP. We’ll even have the EV Seven development on track, so get ready!
