The very famous British sportscar maker, Caterham is all set to enter the Indian market as early as October 2011. Coinciding with the start of the F1 race weekend in India, this launch would be quite significant since apart from Jaguar, there aren’t many sportscar makers of British origin in India. Ansar Ali, the CEO of Caterham mentioned that two people would be handling the Indian operations and those would be a personnel of Dabur Group named as Gaurav Burman while the second one would be British commercial airline pilot, Matt Cummings. There would also be a 3rd person involved, however since talks with him are still going on, Ansar refused to comment.
Not only would be the unveiling of the Caterham car be done, there would also be announcement of opening up a Caterham Academy which would be akin to the one that Caterham has back home in UK. This Academy would be built with the intent of giving probable owners a chance to race their machines against pros or each other. It may be recalled that Caterham were recently brought by Team Lotus and the latter’s boss is thinking of renaming Team Lotus to Team Caterham. Currently Caterham has two models in its portfolio namely the SP/300R and Seven. It is most likely that both these models would make it to India soon.
