Caterham Build – Week 2

Caterham Week 2 -low

With a workshop full of spanners, spring washers and bolts, the Caterham build continues as team 2 start their nominated tasks and begin to feel the excitement of what the next 10 weeks will bring them.

This week will see the team put the gearbox on the bellhousing, in preparation of getting the engine ready to go into the car. The De Dion tube will also be assembled which holds the rear axle together.

This is where the build really starts to take shape, and no doubt the Apprentices will get a real appreciation for Caterham Kit cars.

Caterham Build Project – Week 1

Fuelled by a passion for motorsport, Bri-Stor and Alpha Manufacturing Apprentices will take on the challenge of building a Caterham racing car.

Caterham Build week 1

The project started this week as team 1, consisting of Sam Thompson, Tayler Renshaw and Saisal Khan began by setting out the car parts and organising the components in to sections.

Having masked off parts of the chassis that need protecting, they will then begin building the front of the car, focusing on the suspension and the steering.

Project Manager Ian Buckley and William Davies-Hill will be on hand each week to assist the Apprentices with the build. Stephen Bowen, Apprenticeship Manager will also oversee the project from start to finish.

We are all looking forward to seeing this project progress, from arrival in a flat-pack, to assembling the vehicle from its individual parts to finale which will see the Apprentices race the car on a professional race track.
