PH CATERHAM DAY

30 petrolheads and 3 tail happy cars on a disused airfield - it was a recipe for immense fun!

Last weekend we had the first PistonHeads Caterham Slalom Day and what a blast it was! In sweltering heat (hottest day since the big bang apparently), thirty of us lined up to blast around beaten up traffic cones on the old Brooklands runway in Surrey.

Four courses were set up during the course of the day, each one challenging us to put into practice what we'd learned on the previous one at lower speeds. The best thing about the day? The guys from Caterham are egging you on to get the tail out and slide your way around the course!

The cars are prepared by Team Parker Racing and they set them up to be particularly tail happy. Each course finishes with the driver required to do a full donut around the last cone. Cheered on by fellow PHers we all slid blasted around the circuits with huge grins on our faces.

There was an element of competition with each run being timed, but the chance to meet fellow PHers and indulge in some petrolheaded fun on a Saturday couldn't be bettered. And if Caterham don't sell more cars as a result of these events we'd be amazed!


Where's the cone...?

Caterham are busy trying to sort out a number of dates for repeat bookings for us as we know these are going to become very popular days. Weather isn't going to be a problem either - rain will just make it more manic out on the track whilst the spectators continue to sup coffee and eat Caterham's biscuits. Watch this space for news.
