Caterham Launch Asian Motorsport Arm

1 Mins read

Caterham have launched a new Asian motorsport arm, which they hope can replicate its successful European one-make racing ladder.

Based in Malaysia, Caterham Motorsport Asia will initially introduce the acclaimed SuperSport series to the region, with further championships considered for roll-out in future including Caterham’s kart series.

The SuperSport championship, which will use 140bhp, 1.6litre Ford Sigma-powered machines, will be a ten-round series, held over five race weekends at Sepang International race circuit.

The Asian arm will be headed up by Campbell Tupling, who said: “The core philosophy of Caterham has always been about making a thrilling driving experience accessible to all. With Caterham’s road car range expanding rapidly in the coming years, it makes sense to also cater to the growing Asian appetite for motorsport so that a new audience can be awoken to affordable thrills on both road and track.”

The move comes after Caterham Group chairman Tony Fernandes identified South East Asia as the single most important growth market for the brand.

In the UK, the Caterham ladder comprises series for Superlight R300, SuperSport, TrackSport, RoadSport and Caterham’s grassroots Academy.
