Caterham 310S: PH Videoblog


Ever wanted a Caterham? If there's even a dribble of petrol in your veins we'd hope so. We're certainly fans at PH - Dan and Matt have raced in them, James and Ben used to work for them and there's no such thing as a boring drive in a Seven.

Recently rationalised into a core range of 1.6-litre Sigma and 2.0-litre Duratec models, the Seven range has gained a new version of the former known as the 310. And according to the guys at Caterham it's the best of the bunch, combining the lighter kerbweight of the smaller-engined car with a screamer of an engine harking back to the best of the K-Series cars.

Does it live up to the hype? Dan nearly froze to death trying to find out, which is his excuse for wearing a really daft hat and looking a little ashen. Given we've got a 310 on order for the PH Fleet it's a chance to find out if we really did pick the right one...

    Absolute peace of a car. I'm racing the 310R and it really is a sweet package.

    "this is a caterham build for -shall we say- a powerfully built driver*

    It's a shame that anyone over 13 stone and 5'8" needs the Sv chassis as it just looks so out of proportion compared with the standard chassis.

    Not exactly true...I'm 6'1" and fit nicely in an S3 with lowered floors. Although the more 'powerfully built company director' may wish to try an SV if shoulder room is a little tight...

    friend of mine years back at the london motor show managed to fit into a caterham fine for some free burnouts they was offering. and he was 5'7'' and weighed some 17 stone. he fitted easier in that then he did some of the rides at southend!
