The Academy Championship package is the ultimate introduction to motorsport. Available exclusively to complete novices it ensures a level playing field, guaranteeing all competitors have the same experience. This means all participants can be assured that they will be sharing their first season of motorsport with twenty-seven other drivers who have never held a racing license.

Included in the Academy package is a road-legal Caterham Seven racing car to keep, a full season of racing, technical support and all the steps a novice will have to take to get ready for their first championship. After purchasing an academy package, all drivers will take their racing driver (ARDS) tests together in February, followed by a car-control day and an exclusive circuit test day before the action begins.

The beauty of Caterham Academy is that the fun doesn’t stop after one season. Most drivers want to continue racing, and our motorsport ladder is perfectly designed to accommodate the progression. After Academy, drivers can send their car to Caterham for an upgrade, allowing them to take part exclusively in the Caterham Roadsport Championship. Following this, drivers can use their car, with the respective upgrades, to progress into the 270R and 310R championships.
