My first VR race on caterhamracer.com - Are you watching? It's very good!

Hi, with lockdown continuing I have started to race at caterhamracer.com. I have been watching over the last few weeks and really enjoying the standard of the racing complete with professional commentary.

This Monday I joined my first ever VR race. I have created a YouTube VLOG following my the preparations and a few of the high (and low) lights from the race. Please click here to watch my VLOG!

If you've not watched already, caterhamracer.com has been setup by Caterham Motorsport 2018 310R Champion, Chris Hutchinson. Initially for Caterham Motorsport drivers and those closely connected with the Caterham paddock - the result is a top quality broadcast with exceptional racing which I'm sure you will enjoy if you usually would be enjoying watching 'real-world' Caterham racing at the circuit or on screen.

Stay safe, Rob.

Rob not sure if you saw my earlier post, but it's a real shame it's not open to Seven owners that have been racing online for a while.  It's very disappointing.

Hi, yes I did see the earlier post. I guess it's early days for caterhamracer.com. It was initially setup to help ease the disappointment of race drivers who cannot get on circuit to compete (believe me, that's also disappointing!!)

However, if caterhamracer.com proves to be successful, I would be fairly sure that it could open up to non Caterham Motorsport drivers also in the future, especially those like yourself who are skilled drivers with the aim of keeping the standard of the racing high for the viewers.

if I hear of any change I'll be sure to update everyone here on BlatChat.

Best regards, Rob

Hi CtrMint - did you watch the 420R caterhamracer.com races last night?
Great races, but at the end of the broadcast it sounded like an invite to Caterham owners in addition to Caterham Motorsport drivers. Have a listen at 1:08:30 and get in touch with Chris.

Hopefully see you on the virtual track soon! Rob
