A place in next year’s Caterham Academy is up for grabs, as Pistonheads.com and The Performance Car Show backs the series and launches a unique competition for one reader to become a bona fide racing driver AND a motoring journalist for a year.
To be in with a chance of winning a place on the grid, simply buy a ticket to the Performance Car Show 2013 (January 10-13 at Birmingham’s NEC) and submit 150 words explaining why you should win, or describing a favourite car or race circuit at The PistonHeads.com Caterham Academy Competition.
Ten finalists, selected by Pistonheads, will then battle it out head-to-head in a specially-designed challenge, with the winner booking their place on the 2013 Pistonheads.com Caterham Academy, widely-acknowledged as one of the world’s most successful novice routes into racing.
The closing date for entries to win the unique competition package, worth over £25,000, is midnight 13th January, 2013.
The Academy has created almost 900 brand new racing drivers since its inception in 1995 and remains the most popular way for would-be racers to take their first steps into entry-level motor racing.
Through articles written by the competition winner, Pistonheads.com will follow his or her progress, covering their evolution from wannabe track star to fully-licensed racing driver at every event on the calendar.
The season-long campaign takes drivers through the process of gaining their race license, as well as their first full season of competition, including a structured progression through sprints and circuit races.
Caterham Cars’ Chief Motorsport & Technical Officer, Simon Lambert, said: “The Academy has always been about providing an accessible route into entry-level motorsport and providing a level playing field for our novice drivers.
“This competition is a new initiative for us and is a unique opportunity. We’re excited to see what new talent we can add to our remarkable Academy alumni.”
