Reigning McLaren Autosport BRDC Award winner Matt Parry will race as a guest driver in the Caterham Superlight R300 Championship at Donington Park this weekend (10/11 May).
The 20 year old, who won the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC title last season, is currently in his fourth year in Caterham F1’s driver development programme, and is competing in the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup for Fortec Motorsport this season.
Parry will make a guest appearance in the R300 Championship during the opening rounds of the championship, having been impressed by the category during a trip to Donington a year ago.
“I went to Donington last year as a spectator to watch the R300 championship and loved it,” explained Parry. “I really wanted to take part so, when I was invited to take the guest seat at Donington this year, I absolutely jumped at the chance.
“I’ve driven a Caterham Seven once before; it’s a sportscar unlike any other and an experience you can’t easily forget so I can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the Superlight R300 and put it through its paces.”
The Superlight R300 championship was launched in 2009 and is Caterham’s flagship race series.
