Home to an energetic 117,000 motoring enthusiasts from across the globe, PistonHeads.com boasts some 2.5 million unique users per month and will be the title sponsor of the coming 2014 series.

The PistonHeads.com Caterham Academy is acknowledged the world over as being one of the best value introductions to motorsport for aspiring race drivers.

Selling out annually, the Academy fastens rookie racers firmly into the seat of a Caterham Seven – the iconic racing machine. The Academy vehicle’s underpinnings are identical in specification to the popular Ford Sigma 1.6 powered Roadsport 125 – a car capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in just 5.9 seconds.

Since its beginnings in 1995, more than 900 novice racing drivers have tamed the race licence process, along with their first full season of competition in sprints and race events, emerging as qualified racers.

Covering all aspects of what it takes to become a fully-fledged race car driver the Academy guides the novices through every step, from gaining a competition licence, through car control training and onto a finale of five championship races

The 2014 season will see the format change slightly to include even more circuit racing, with the season comprising two sprints and five full circuit race meetings.

PistonHeads.com editor, Dan Trent, said: “Caterham is a brand with a passionate following among PistonHeads readers and the Seven a personal favourite of many of us here on the team. From reader competitions offering a place in the championship to direct experience of taking part ourselves, we know what a fantastic opportunity the Academy offers for those making the leap from track day enthusiast to fully fledged racer. Accessible, fun, competitive and centred around a car perfectly suited to developing your skills as a driver on road and track, pairing up with Caterham to support the championship makes perfect sense.”

Caterham Chief Motorsport and Technical Officer, Simon Lambert, adds: “The Seven is a true enthusiast’s car with a rich racing pedigree. Positioning this heritage alongside the biggest hub of petrol heads the UK has ever seen and providing them with some ownership and insight into the Academy for the second consecutive year, makes perfect sense.”

Partnering with PistonHeads.com will see the Academy featured in articles and race reports at PistonHeads.com during the 2014 season, beginning on February 12.

Including the car, Caterham’s Academy package starts at £21,495 a season and prepares racers for their ARDS race licence and hones their driving through rigorous tuition.
