2001 Caterham Roadsport


SOLD - Ex-Academy 1.6 K-series Roadsport 120bhp in orange and black. This car has tillett seats, a full rollover cage, adjustable platforms and weather gear.

It has a Dedion chassis, 1.6 race-sealed Rover K-series engine with McMillan Motorsport forged pistons, apollo tank, and a 5-speed gearbox. It has a number of race upgrades such as lightweight aluminium radiator, front and rear anti-roll bars, adjustable platforms over recent new springs and dampers, Aces shift lights, high-level foglight and a plumbed-in fire extinguisher. The front hubs were recently upgraded to the newer, stronger type.

Its cockpit has a quick-release removable Momo steering wheel, tillett seats, full harnesses, windscreen with full doors and a hood. It has a partial black pack - black lights and exhaust guard. Safety-wise it has a full rollcage and a side impact bar. The wheels are 13 inch minilites with Yokohama A048 tyres.

The car has been racing in the Supergraduate series, and has always been maintained with no expense spared for racing. But it could do with some TLC to bring it back to its cosmetic best, something which our partners The Classic Car Workshop would be able to help with that if required.

It comes with a file of original invoices and even photographs of its build! It was originally kit-built and the chassis number starts SKDRDK.

It could be a bargain winter project, a blank canvas for upgrading, or just a great road/track car as it has just got a full year's MOT. It is also eligible to race in Supergrads, Magnificent Sevens, SEMSEC or many other series.
