Caterham Cars appointed the newly-crowned American Le Mans Series (ALMS) LMP1 champion team as its official US distributor. The two companies share a mutual partnership with Lola Cars. Dyson Racing’s relationship with Lola Cars dates back over two decades.

Dyson Racing is one of the most successful and longest-running privateer race teams in America, having competed in IMSA GTO and GTP, SCCA Trans-Am, Grand-Am, CART and Indy Lights since its inception in 1974.

Dyson will receive its demonstration car early in 2012, with customer cars being delivered Stateside from Spring onwards.

Team Vice President and Sporting Director, Chris Dyson, said: “Dyson Racing is pleased to partner with Caterham as the exclusive importer of the SP/300.R for the United States. Trackday driving is a rapidly growing phenomenon in America and this car will be ideal for the many enthusiasts who enjoy this aspect of the sport.

For the U.S. market, the SP/300.R represents a three-way partnership between Caterham Cars, Lola Cars and Dyson Racing. Design and manufacturing is done by Caterham, with engineering input from Lola. The US cars will be manufactured to appropriate specifications, with final assembly taking place at Dyson’s facility in Poughkeepsie, NY.

The 300hp supercharged Caterham-Lola SP/300.R was launched in January this year and customer orders to date have been strong.

Dyson continued: “The SP/300.R is an amazing car. It mirrors the technology and the appearance of the Lola Le Mans prototypes that our team campaigns in the American Le Mans Series, but has been carefully designed to be affordable.” For more information about the Caterham SP/300.R visit www.caterham-spr.com/ or www.dysonracing.com
