Mike Solan races a fast Caterham at Spa from the back
In 2005 at Spa I qualified on row 7 in a Caterham MegaGrad (the fastest
Class) out of 65 cars. The car wouldnt start at first, so I eventually
started by bump starting it down the slight hill after everyone had passed
me on the grid. It led to some interesting overtaking moves! Easy at first
as the backmarkers were slower than me, becoming more difficult as I caught
up quicker cars...
I am available to give fast passenger laps in a Supercharged Ariel Atom 3
at Prodrive race circuit in Warwickshire, or you can drive it yourself for
£99! Visit www.drivingexperiencesdirect.co.uk

2013 Caterham R620 Development Car; one lap of the Nürburgring Nordschleife
Caterham were here for the recent F1 GP at the Nürburgring. They brought
with them the engine and transmission test mule for the new R620 supercar.
This little green machine started life as 'just' an R500, before it got the
new SaDev sequential gearbox and the supercharged R620 motor. I was only
allowed one lap and I've got no prior experience with a flat-shifting
sequential, so I didn't go too crazy, but it was still quite quick...
KTM 1290 Super Duke R vs Caterham 620R: EPIC car v bike track battle

R around our test track?

The Caterham 7 620R is one of the most extreme cars the brand has has ever
made - and of course that means it's perfect for a track battle. We were
planning on racing it against a KTM X-Bow but we couldn't get our hands on
one of those - so we've got another KTM to race against it instead: a KTM
1290 Super Duke R.
The KTM is as lairy as a motorcycle gets and it's easily a match for the
Caterham in the scary stakes. But how will it match against the 620R in a
timed lap around our track battle circuit at Blyton Park?
There were some really slippery conditions at the track so the car, with
its four wheels, has an advantage over the bike, as it's only got two. To
even things out we put some obstacles in the path of both vehicles. There
was a brake box, where they had to stop and then start again, as well as a
simple slalom through some cones on the track.
The KTM 1290 Super Duke R gets a 1,301cc V-twin engine and because of the
size and configuration it gives lot of grunt: with 180bhp and weighing just
189kg, that's more than enough to be getting on with.
KTM has packed this full of kit: it's got massive Brembo brakes, and if
they need a little bit more help then there's a Bosch ABS system (which you
can turn off if you want). Also on the electronic side you've got traction
control. It works in tandem with rider mode settings and again you can turn
that off if you want - to pull wheelies and do skids and burnouts.
The Caterham 7 620R is the fastest road car that Caterham's ever made. It's
got a 2.0-litre Duratec engine with a Supercharger and that means it's got 310bhp - but
it only weights just over 500kg, so it's pretty extreme. It's also got a
sequential gearbox, but no ABS or traction control obviously and a very
lightly-cut slick tyre.
With the weather looking nasty, and each vehicle bursting with power, it
was set to be an incredible race - and you can watch the video to find out

Caterham 620R slays Volkswagen Golf GTI - Caterham's fastest ever road car tested
The Caterham 620R is one of the world's most extreme lightweight sports
cars ever built. Steve Sutcliffe puts it to the test.

The Caterham 620R packs wide-track front suspension, a supercharged
2.0-litre Ford Duratec motor producing 311bhp and 219lb ft driving the back
wheels through a straight-cut, sequential six-speed gearbox and
limited-slip differential. It is a few ancillaries away from being a race
car, and not much this side of a hypercar such as the Bugatti Veyron could keep pace with it. It
is extreme in a way only drivers of a BAC Mono or Ariel Atom could
understand. The fastest Caterham road car ever is also one of the most

Caterham 7 A4069 Black Mountain Pass Blat HD
Full run over the Black Mountain Pass (A4069) in South Wales in my newly
built Caterham 7, heading northbound.
One of the best roads I've driven on and virtually deserted- only
detraction was some new surfacing being undertaken at the time on the far
side of the mountain.
All filmed on GoPro HD, with sound courtesy of my iPhone that was sat on my
lap throughout due to the GoPro mic being a bit crap.
