Caterham launches new Turkish series
Caterham has expanded its international championship range by starting a new series in Turkey.
The British manufacturer will support the new class, which will run over 13 races at the Istanbul Park Circuit – formerly the home of the Turkish Grand Prix.
The championship will utilise Caterham’s 180bhp Superlight R300 model, and so far 20 cars have been supplied. The season begins in April.
The new series is the fourth international expansion from Caterham, following the start of its Colombian and Malaysian series last year and its French championship.
Caterham’s motorsport head Simon Lambert said: “It is incredibly rewarding and exciting to bring our unique brand of exhilarating racing to another new audience.”
