To be a racing driver, you need a race licence! And that’s what this day was all about. By this point Caterham have done a great job of instilling all the information required to pass. In principle, all that is now required is to sit an exam (including questions on flags – for which there is no room for error!), and to drive an instructor round Castle Combe circuit without throwing it off the tarmac.
The day was split into four quarters, with groups rotating through four activities. As well as the written exam and the driving assessment, Caterham had also arranged a session on the skid pan, as well as instruction on preparing the car for competition.
