Andy - I visited Caterham around 1977 to look at the cars. Can't remember much about the "factory" but have always wanted one since 1964 when I saw one at what was then called a Gymkana and they were Lotus. Anyhow now I have one (Caterham).
Perhaps the most fun car to drive.

Always nice to know of sources for any parts.

Sorry but what are "blats"?

Wish I had a Caterham I had to buy spares for...

But it's my favourite sports car, whether a real Lotus version, a Caterham version, or a well-done kit car.

Some day...

Going for a 'Blat' is going for a drive, but an enthusiastic drive where the purpose is simply to enjoy the driving.

Have a look at our forum at www.blatchat.com (https://www.blatchat.com)

There you will find REAL experts in Caterhams unlike me who is still learning all the time

Just found your forum website whilst google searching for advice on changing the trunions on my Caterham Seven.

Thought I would make an offer to anyone that might want or need it.

I live approximately 6 miles from Caterham (which is a town in Surrey near London where the car company are based) there are loads of Caterham drivers around here and a very active club with regular meetings and 'blats'.

So anyway, if anyone is struggling to find a particular part for their Caterham in the States then drop me an email and I will see if I can source it over here for you.

Forgive me if you guys already have an established supply network, it is just an offer from one fan to another.

Here's a chap that's in my neighborhood, I think he's a Caterham dealer. Also races on a regular basis: https://www.gt-classics.com/

If he doesn't provide Caterham parts, he'll know who can help you.

Good luck!

I was just in that area (Pryford) last summer and didn't realize that Caterham was so close until I got back. Then my Dad casually mentioned. Argh. I understand McLaren is close by too.
