Caterham Seven 270R Championship

The 270R has evolved from the highly successful Roadsport formula, keeping everything the same other than the switch to more modern Ford Sigma power.

Road suspension is replaced by stiffer dampers and race springs, with a wider track front suspension, while the engine is given a higher rev limit to enable drivers to make use of the improved aerodynamics that come from the removal of the headlights and windscreen (which is replaced by a race aeroscreen). However, the screen and lights can be easily refitted to make the car fully road useable between rounds.

Team support is allowed at this level, providing many drivers with the arrive’n’drive convenience they require to enable them to keep racing. Alternatively, many drivers continue to take up the low-cost central support option offered by Caterham to help get them out of trouble should the time come!

In addition to the increase in specification of the car, the races extend to 30 minutes duration to really put drivers to the test. Unlike Academy and Roadsport, 270R drivers can stay in the championship year on year, making for a mix of rising talent and established competitors.
