Caterham 310R Racing Championship – Introducing the driver: Taylor O’Flanagan

Hello, I’m Taylor! Thank you for taking the time to read my sponsorship opportunities for 2023. So, a little bit about me… well, I love to drive, but you have probably guessed that much already! I grew up in Stevenage, Hertfordshire (the same town as Lewis Hamilton, just saying) and I am incredibly passionate about all forms of extreme sports, but especially motorsport. By day, I run a creative advertising agency, so we know a thing or two about brand coverage! I didn’t have a typical motorsport upbringing, instead of go-karting from a young age, my development of car control came from drifting. I was a drifting instructor for 2 years and built a few competition cars. I was always keen to compete in circuit racing, so when the opportunity arose to race in the renowned Caterham Academy in 2020, I knew it was the chance I needed to get behind the wheel of a racecar! We have now completed 3 full seasons of racing, and with the support of my amazing friends, family and sponsors, we have won 3 championships and picked up many podiums, pole positions and lap records along the way!

Introducing the racing: Caterham Cars UK Championship

The Caterham name has always been synonymous with motorsport and today the Seven remains one of the most successful and popular race cars around the world. It isn’t really surprising, as when the Seven was conceived it was always first and foremost a race car. After dominating races across the World, by the 1960s the car was declared “too fast to race” and was subsequently banned from competing in many established race championships. This ban effectively led to the birth of what Caterham racing is now most famous for – incredibly competitive and closely fought one make racing. The championships are known for the non-stop side by side action and dead heat race finishes. Due to how amazingly unaerodynamic the cars are, they produce a huge slipstream effect that is the catalyst for 5 car wide challenges into corners and 10-15 car battles for the lead. Crazy really, but it’s definitely a better watch than Formula 1! On top of this, the Caterham paddock has a great atmosphere, fit for families, friends and collegues to enjoy motorsport at some of the best tracks around the UK and abroad with the international round each year.

The 2023 Championship:

For the 2023 season, the car is being upgraded to Caterham’s ultimate 310R spec, and we are headed to a new series of circuits around the UK and abroad. The car will be stripped back to white and we are offering various sponsorship packages for another monumental season.
