Workshop & Track Day Mechanical ServicesFrom our base at Donington Park Circuit we have been running a busy workshop since September 2011, specialising in repair and maintenance of Caterham 7’s, including our large fleet of track day rental cars. Our team of mechanics have many years of workshop and on-event experience, supporting Caterham 7’s as well as many other marques of car.
We aim to provide mechanical services for road, track day and race clients both within our workshop and on our extensive events calendar. If you are interested in any of the services listed please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our range of mechanical services includes:
WorkshopOn 1st November 2015 ‘BookaTrack Caterham’ became the official Caterham dealer for the Midlands region. In addition to this we have held official Caterham motorsport team status since 2011. With our workshop based at Donington Park, just a few feet away from our new official BookaTrack Caterham showroom, we have the ideal location and experience to offer our services for your road, track or race car.
From this central and prestigious location, our trained technicians are always on hand to deliver a high quality platform of care, including:
• Regular full service and maintenance (including track day prep)
• Caterham 7 warranty work
• Post-build checks (Caterham 7 kit builds)
• Race and road car set-up
• Parts sales
• Tyre and wheel checks
• Tyre changing facilities (also available on all BaT Donington Park track days)

Our workshop team includes Stuart Faulds, a highly experienced technician with an unrivalled understanding of any race car. From running his own race team for a number of years Stuart is considered the ‘best in his field’ when it comes to the building and setting up of race cars. Also Rob Carter, who worked for Caterham Midlands for many years and gained a wealth of experience building, repairing and servicing road cars. Rob has invaluable knowledge for both road and race Caterhams, having supported Caterham at their official race meetings. Stuart and Rob are supported by a team of junior mechanics with both workshop and event experience, gained from running our fleet of arrive and drive track cars.
Should you need your car transporting to us for any of the above services, we have the facility to collect from a BookaTrack track day or a third party day. We are also happy to quote for transportation to and from our workshop from a location not listed on our events calendar.
Our workshop labour rate is £50 +VAT. All official Caterham parts are charged as per the official Caterham parts website.
Parts SalesAs an official Caterham dealer we are also able to supply a wide range of Caterham parts from our base at Donington Park, for customers who look after their own vehicles. Prices of parts can be found on the Caterham parts website and can be collected from us during working hours. If you require shipping of parts please enquire for pricing.
Although we aim to stock a wide variety of parts please always enquire if you are planning on collecting parts from us as they may take a few days to be shipped from Caterham.
Vehicle Storage & Transport (Bring My Car)As part of our workshop and track day services we also offer a car storage solution whereby we can securely store your car at Donington Park. Our store and forward (Bring My Car) service will ensure the storage and safe arrival of your car at any event listed on our track day calendar. The cost of the storage is £75+VAT per calendar month, with a minimum of 12 months storage.
Our ‘Bring My Car’ service enables transportation of your vehicle to any BaT or third party track day listed on our website. The price for this is £125+VAT for UK events, European track day price varies depending on distance from our workshop. For track days at Donington Park there is no charge for delivery – the car can be collected from our unit within the paddock and will not need to be driven on the public road.
If there are any dates you would like to attend that are not listed on our website we are happy to deliver your car to these (with reasonable notice). Furthermore, if you are leaving a car with us that we are unable to service for any reason we can transport your car to or from a chosen location. In the above scenarios transportation costs are calculated on a per mile basis.
Additionally, BaT are equipped to transport to any location throughout Europe, whether or not it is for a BaT event. If you have a fleet of cars you wish to transport to a European event please get in touch for a quote.
Due to our history and expertise in running Caterham 7’s many of our store and forward clients are Caterham owners. As such they take advantage of our workshop facilities having regular track day preps and other service and repair work completed on their vehicles.
Bring My WheelsBaT offer a ‘Bring My Wheels’ service for track day clients who do not want to or are unable to transport their spare wheels to track days. For ‘Bring My Wheels’ we charge £30 per set of 4 wheels per event (£50 for European events). The service is easy to book on the website event booking page and includes:
• Secure storage of customer wheels
• Transport of customer wheels to their desired track day
• Tyre fitting at Donington Park or selected European track days (at additional cost)
For clients attending more than 4 events per year (and paying at least 4 x £30 per year for Bring My Wheels) there is no charge for the storage of the first set of wheels. Clients attending less than 4 events per year will need to pay a storage & insurance charge of £100+VAT per calendar year.
Please note - we actually need to obtain your wheels in the first place - you can either bring them to a track day, or drop them off at our workshop! Please contact us to make arrangements.
We also have the ability to change tyres at Donington Park and selected European events. The cost of this is £10 per tyre up to 17" and £20 per tyre for 18" and over. Tyres can be delivered to the workshop or taken to one of our track days. If you require tyre fitting at a European track day please schedule this with our mechanics and note that the latest time for fitting is 3pm.
Track Day Mechanical ServicesIf you are attending an event at Donington Park either organised by ourselves or a third party and have a mechanical problem with your car you are more than welcome to drop into our workshop to access our mechanical services.
Whilst at events away from Donington Park, the BaT truck is equipped with a large selection of tools and parts which may be required to support the track day community. Our aim is to, wherever possible, assist people who have suffered from some form of mechanical breakdown to get back onto the track as soon and as safely as possible. However, please note we do NOT offer a tool hire service but our staff are available to assist you at £50+VAT per hour, subject to a minimum fee of £25+VAT.
