Welcome to the revised website for the rebuilding of the 2014 Caterham Formula One car CT05#1.
The web pages will follow both the construction of the car from a damaged monocoque through to a running F1 car
Latest Update - December 12th 2017.
The final redesign of the front suspension is nearly completed and by early 2018 will be ready to be manufactured and bolted to the car so CT05#1 can be driven again in 2018. The aim is to have the Formula Renault engine in and running any day now and the car on the rear suspension by early January 2018. Start up of the car is planned for this week and manufacture of front suspension parts is due to commence in early January 2018. Below are images from the front suspension mounting points. I have moved away from replicating the original suspension as it came with expensive maintenance costs should any part ever fail. Thanks to As Pro Engineering.
