The Vauxhall cars form our Classic Class and the Rover engine \ncars originally form our Mega Class.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eFollowing Caterham Cars introducing the Ford Sigma engine in 2008 \nthe Club introduced a class for that car (called Sigma) and then \nintroduced the upgraded SigMax (equivalent to the Caterham Supersport). \u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eToday our classes are structured to allow both older and newer \nCaterhams to compete. Our classes for more modern cars follow the follow\n the specification of the current Caterham Motorsport Roadsport, 270R \nand 310R classes.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMany of our members have been with us for years and previous racing \nmembers include Jon Barnes (British GT Champion and current Caterham \ntest driver and 2002 Super Graduates runner up), current BTCC driver Oli\n Jackson, and Caterham’s own Simon Lambert (2002 Super Graduates \nChampion). Caterham technician Lee Bristow (310R Champion 2017) raced \nin SigMax in 2016 and was runner up in the Championship.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe draw our membership from Caterham Motorsport, novice racers \n(including some ex karters), other types of racing and CGRC alumni, \nreturning to race with us. We don’t expect members to upgrade or change \ntheir cars – many have raced in the same class for years. \u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eClub ethos\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eTo look to provide the best in fair, close and competitive Caterham \nracing in a social and friendly environment.

The executive are directors \n of the club, who, along with \"Trustee” directors, form the board. \nEach year three directors retire by rotation. Elections for board \nmembership take place each year at the AGM.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOur funding comes from sponsorship and subscriptions.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe Club run under the umbrella of BARC (The British Automobile \nRacing Club), who organise most of our race meetings for us. We do \norganise our own race meetings – for example our international meeting \nand the occasional UK race meeting, where BARC cannot access a \nparticular circuit where we want to race. We have a very good working \nrelationship with BARC, being a significant Club in their “portfolio”. \nWe are in control of our Championship Regulations, subject to oversight\n from BARC and Motorsport UK.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe do not tolerate poor driving and actively maintain high driving \nstandards. We have a system in place that supplements the normal \nclerking at each race meeting. It comprises a team of experienced \ndrivers who make up our Driving Standards Team (DST). Members of the DST\n are available at race meetings for consultation on a particular issue.\n Any Club member can lodge an investigation request to the DST about \ndriving standards which is then fully investigated. The DST have a \nrange of sanctions available, including ultimately the suspension of \nracing membership. The Club has mandated on-board cameras to assist \nwith reviewing incidents.\u0026nbsp;\u003c/p\u003e","ComponentCode":null,"ComponentData":null,"ComponentError":null,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"ImageCrop":null,"Filter":null,"Html":"\u003cdiv class=\"cms-image\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e"}}],"Height":0,"ColumnSpacing":0,"BottomMargin":0,"IsFullWidth":false,"IsBackgroundFullWidth":false,"Background":{"Colour":null,"ImageURL":null,"ImageCrop":null,"Filter":null,"Html":"\u003cdiv class=\"cms-image\"\u003e\u003c/div\u003e"}},{"Columns":[{"Width":12,"WidthClasses":"col-md-12","Type":"HTML","Content":"\u003ch2\u003eCGRC today\u003c/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWe are one of the largest single make UK Championships in club racing. \u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eSome 50 % of Members run themselves and often contract with one of \nthe race teams for emergency support.
