Your Caterham Driving Experience Day
There’s not many racing cars that are a very modern name steeped in heritage - but Caterham are the exception. And you’ll discover what these simply made but powerful kit cars are capable of when you book them for a Caterham experience day package on Driving Experience.
First built in 1973, their tastefully retrospective design is a gracious nod in the direction of the classic Lotus Seven, on which the Caterham 7 model is based. And, much like their forerunner’s approach of ‘simplicity and lightness’, they are a high watermark of British car design and engineering at its very best that has won the hearts of motoring fans across the nation, meaning they are just as at home on the open road as they are on the race or circuit track.
But whether it’s a classic 7 you opt for, or a Caterham Superlight R300, the principle of each model remains the same: streamlined, modest but high quality kit building, adding up to a turbo powered experience behind the wheel that more than meets the match of its contemporaries.
With superb handling and a fine tuned power-to-weight ratio, the Caterham 7 can reach speeds of up to 130 mph, going from 0-60 mph in a super swift 3.5 seconds. A particularly brilliant birthday gift idea for any motorsport enthusiasts with a purist approach to racing cars, we offer this incredible driving experience day in Blast or Thrill packages.

Boost Your Caterham Driving Experience
Why limit your driving experience day to just a Caterham? With our Combined Experience packages we offer, they are a great partner to as many five other race cars or supercars of your choosing, whether it’s a modern favourite like a Ferrari California or Lamborghini Gallardo, or even a more classic contemporary like the Ford MK1 Escort RS or AC Cobra.
Not just a driving favourite, the Caterham 7 is an equally popular choice for our Drifting Driving Experiences, where you’ll get to perform some thrilling daredevil drift stunts to put Paul Walker to shame under the tutelage of your expert instructor on the day. There’s even the opportunity to add a passenger ride or hot lap to your experience package.
But however you wish to smoke your tyres, all safety precautions are accounted for, and our professionally trained instructors we provide you on all our driving experience days will be on hand to give you a full briefing when you arrive and help you get maximum excitement out of your time behind the wheel.
And there’s a driving experience day in a Caterham kit car nearer to you than you think. We have a fantastic selection of race track and circuit track venues nationwide for you to choose from, including Silverstone, Donington Park and Heyford Park to name but several.
All you need to do is pick an available date and time to suit you from our events calendar, or if you’re looking for more flexibility when you book, our open 10 month gift vouchers are both the ideal solution and the perfect gift for any special occasion for the motor enthusiast in your life.
Booking a Caterham Driving Experience
There are two easy ways for you to purchase a Caterham Driving Experience. You can either purchase one of our driving experience days as an open 10-month gift voucher or book directly onto an available date of your choice using our events calendar.
If you cannot see any dates on the voucher page, then simply e-mail or call us and our customer service team can give you the most up to date availability. If you wish to make a bespoke package, or are interested in making one of our driving experiences into a group event or corporate event, please contact us by going to our corporate days page and filling in our enquiry form.
Essential Booking Information for Caterham Driving Experiences
If you buy an open gift voucher for a Caterham package, the standard validity period to use the voucher is 10 months. However, please make sure you check this first, as some Caterham vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity.
If you are booking directly onto a date for a driving experience, please note that you are making a booking request, and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours, but we ask that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received your final confirmation email. The receipt we send you after making a booking request is not your confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing Caterham driving experiences are that the driver meets all requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. These requirements are unique to each driving experience, so please ensure you have read the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only, we will usually mention this in the name of the package, but not in all cases. If you place a booking for a driving experience, and the driver doesn’t meet the requirements on the day, then it is unlikely they will be able to drive the vehicle, in which case they will be offered a passenger ride where available.
