BookaTrack Caterham launches Seven 420R Donington Edition

BookaTrack Caterham has launched a brand new limited edition Caterham Seven 420R, to mark the 40th anniversary being celebrated this year by Donington Park Circuit. Created and designed by BookaTrack Caterham and dubbed the Seven 420R Donington Edition, the car is endorsed by Donington Park and was launched at the Caterham 60th anniversary celebration on 8th July, as part of the Caterham Festival event.



The prestige associated with this limited edition range is highlighted by the fact just 10 cars will be available. Each of the 10 cars will be built in the BookaTrack Caterham Donington Park-based workshop, by Workshop Manager Stuart Faulds and Senior Retail Mechanic Robert Carter, and finished with a commemorative plaque, confirming its authenticity.

To celebrate this significant anniversary since the re-opening of the circuit, each Seven 420R Donington Edition will be allocated a unique title to reflect Donington Park's most infamous features, such as Redgate, Craner Curves and Old Hairpin.

Available as either a standard S3 or as the wider, longer SV chassis, the Seven 420R Donington Edition flaunts some of the best features that Caterham has to offer. The spectacular 2.0 litre Ford Duratec engine produces a solid 210bhp, and is mounted to a Sadev 6 speed sequential gearbox and limited slip differential. Suspension is taken care of by aero wishbones and race dampers with unique spring rates and 13" ZZR tyres.


Finished externally with a Superlight cage, aeroscreen, carbon vinyl half doors, a carbon vinyl tonneau and the distinctive dash and nosecone from the range-topping 620, the Seven 420R Donington Edition certainly will be eye-catching. The cars will all be finished in the same striking design, which will reflect the colour-scheme of the Donington logo.

Orders for this spectacular piece of history are now being taken, with delivery estimated for 2018.

Christopher Tate, Donington Park's Managing Director, said: "We are thrilled that Caterham are putting our name to one of their iconic cars, in this year of great celebration for Donington Park. We have over the years seen some stunning racing from Caterhams at Donington, and it's a very fitting link indeed for this commemorative model to be made.

"Our relationship has been further strengthened with the establishment of the BookaTrack Caterham showroom at the circuit, and we look forward to further strengthening this relationship in the future, and seeing some of the Donington edition Caterhams on our track."


Graham Macdonald, Caterham's Chief Executive Officer, added: "As the Caterham Seven celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2017, it's great to see that the Seven is also being personalised to mark Donington Park's 40th anniversary. With many of our motorsport series' taking place at Donington over the years, it's a fitting celebration to see a limited edition Seven endorsed by one of the most prestigious race tracks in the UK."


Managing Director of BookaTrack Caterham, Jonny Leroux, added: "The Donington Edition Caterham Seven 420R is a culmination of the two most important brands to BookaTrack. Bringing Caterham and Donington Park together for a limited edition model is the perfect way for BookaTrack to commemorate the 60th Anniversary of the Seven and the 40th Anniversary of the reopening of Donington Park.

"The standard specification of the car is unrivalled. We were determined that the Donington Edition should be the ultimate track day Caterham and there are no options that this model lacks. Stuart and Rob are two of the most highly respected Caterham technicians in the world, and it is fantastic to have them building each car.

"Each owner will also receive a signed certificate from both Graham Macdonald (CEO of Caterham) and Christopher Tate (Managing Director of Donington Park) to validate authenticity of the model.

"I couldn't be more delighted to be involved in the development of this limited edition model."
