Irish Formula One fans will be able to see the Caterham team in action on the streets of their capital later this year after Tony Fernandes’ squad were confirmed for June’s Bavaria City Racing event in Dublin.

The five-hour motorsport spectacular will be staged in the heart of the city, with Caterham lining up alongside an ever growing list of international and domestic talent, including Formula One rivals McLaren, the Aprilia Superbike team, the Motorbase British Touring Car team and representatives from the GP2 Series.

“We are absolutely delighted to be taking part,” commented Riad Asmat, Caterham Group CEO. “It is going to be a fantastic event and you don’t have to be an F1 fan to be excited about seeing our car, and all the other teams taking part - the noise alone around the streets of Dublin will be incredible and we can’t wait to get over to Dublin and show our friends in Ireland what F1 is all about.”

Caterham’s Formula One car will be driven along the Bavaria City Racing Dublin city track, which starts at the Convention Centre Dublin, continues along Customs House Quay before crossing Butt Bridge, passes through chicanes at D’Olier Street, and then zips past College Green and the Central Bank on Dame Street before reaching the chequered flag on O’Connell Bridge.

Bavaria City Racing Dublin, which is free to the public, takes place on Sunday, June 3 and is expected to attract over 150,000 spectators.
