Now I know why Minis handle well; they beat the living hell out of their development prototypes. And I know that because yesterday I chased one down Mulholland in a Caterham until the Mini’s brakes were catching fire.
If there's one thing Evo's Track Car of the Year 2014 video proves, it's that British car enthusiasts are the luckiest devils in the universe.

promoting their business partners at Crowdcube crowdfunding Caterham's return for the last Formula One race of the season, the administrator over the team has opted to put the team's assets up for auction. They're done.
Up until a few minutes ago, I had no idea about Lego Ideas. It's where builders submit model proposals, get votes, and if they garner enough support, Lego might sell it. And Lego most definitely needs to sell these Caterham Super Sevens. It's a kit car kit!
A buck-sixty, or a single British pound: that's how much Caterham Sports Limited was sold for back in September. For a fourth of the price of one of my morning quadruple lattes, you could have had the entire manufacturing arm of a Formula One team.
Per Autoweek, financially distressed Formula One team Caterham has been given approval to run their 2014 car for 2015. This can only end well...behind everyone else on the grid.

Just after successfully crowdfunding their entry to the final Formula One race of the season at Abu Dhabi, Caterham quietly let its entire 230-member backroom staff go.

Despite being just over $780,000 short of their crowdfunding goal of $3.7 million, the Caterham Formula One team has announced today that they will be traveling to Abu Dhabi for the final race of the season anyway.
Wow, people must really want the Caterham Formula One team to compete in the final race of the season at Abu Dhabi. The beleaguered team resorted to crowdfunding $3.7 million to race again, and five days later, they're halfway there.
The Caterham F1 team has had a very tough year, so tough that they just missed the USGP in Austin due to the team entering administration. However, the administrators believe that Caterham is worth more if they're racing, so to get them back on track they want fans to pay $3.7 million so they can make the finale in…
The Formula One grid is a lot smaller than normal in Austin this weekend because the Marussia and Caterham teams are both too cash-strapped to run the race. Adding insult to injury, the teams could technically face penalties from the FIA for not showing up, but race stewards have decided otherwise.
Two changes are coming to the Formula One United States Grand Prix. The FIA will change the F1 qualifying format in response to Marussia and Caterham's absence, and the series plans to test a yellow flag speed limit.
Cars are en route to Austin for the United States Grand Prix, and per Bernie Ecclestone, two teams are missing from the shipment: Caterham and Marussia. Only nine teams and eighteen cars will make the USGP the smallest Formula One grid since 2005.
Although Caterham has been given approval by the FIA to miss the next two Formula One grands prix at Austin and Brazil due to ongoing financial difficulties, the representative for the administrator who has taken control of the team's assets, Finbarr O'Connell, says that the team is more valuable if they keep racing.
Another wrench was thrown into Caterham's plans to make the United States Grand Prix next week: Caterham's staff has been locked out of the team's headquarters in Leafield, England.
Earlier this summer, the Caterham F1 Team was sold by reputable businessman Tony Fernandes to a group of investors. The investors are now taking issue with how the sale has gone down, as Fernandes is yet to transfer ownership. Fernandes's response? "If you buy something, you should pay for it."
Earlier today there were reports about some sort of ruckus going on at the Caterham F1 team, including rumors of police at their headquarters in England. Then they issued a weird non-denial denial that anything happened at all. And now repo men are selling a bunch of their stuff, including an F1 car.
The Caterham F1 team office has reportedly been raided by police, according to Emma Buxton. It's unclear as to what exactly triggered the law enforcement action, but the team has been in extremely dire financial straits.
Colin Chapman was doing the Lord's work when he crafted the brilliant Lotus Seven. Some 57 years later, there are all manner of interpretations of the man's ethos. We took three of the best, the Caterham 7 S3, the Lotus Exige V6 Cup, and the Dyson Racing Caterham SP/300.R to Sonoma Raceway, threw Jack Baruth the keys…
