Caterham is set to return to the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power to defend its course record with an SP/300.R
30 May 2013

Caterham is eyeing a new course record at the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power as it prepares to run a Caterham SP/300.R at the Cheshire event.

Last year’s Pageant of Power saw a Caterham set the fastest ever time of 61.89sec in the hands of Caterham Experience instructor Scott Mansell. He will return this year to contest his title in the face of opposition driving a BAC Mono, Ariel Atom 3.5 and Radical SV8.

The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is held on 14-16 June. Tickets are priced from £25 and are available from
