Caterham Celebrate a Truly British Year – Hire a 7

In Caterham by Jonathan Humphrey

With the nation looking forward to a very British year, with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics 2012, Celebrating all things British is a good thing.

With everyone including the Government getting behind a campaign to get more Britons holidaying here in the UK*, the ‘staycation’ is set to make a roaring comeback, with sales of UK-based holidays already nine percent higher than last year.  Caterham Cars have kicked off its annual Hire-a-7 season just as the first taste of summer weather arrived this week.

With prices from £175 for a single day or £325*** for two days’ hire and full weekend hire also available, what better way to honour Queen and country than travelling to and from a break away in one of Caterham’s expanded fleet of iconic Seven sportscars?”

Caterham has also introduced additional Roadsport (with weather protection) and Roadsport SV (wider chassis) models which are available to rent from seven locations. Low weekday rates also apply and discounts are available for weekends.

The only way to truly understand the Caterham Seven is to drive it – with its unique handling characteristics, the Seven is unlike anything else on the road. Its direct, race-inspired steering, alert throttle response and outstanding manoeuvrability provide an unrivalled driving experience.

Running until the end of October each year, the Hire-A-7 service is available from:

  • Caterham South, Surrey
  • Caterham Midlands, Leicester
  • Open Road Hire, Scottish Highlands
  • Seven Hire, Gloucestershire
  • Roadsport Hire, Yorkshire
  • Highlands Caterham Hire, Scotland
  • Hire 7, Northern Ireland

Emma Bloomfield, Caterham Experience Manager, said: “This year is going to be a jamboree of all things British – there’s a real sense of national pride swelling across the land as well as the sense that this summer will have a real party atmosphere.

“Driving one of the most famous British sportscars ever built will only amplify that – Caterham is a uniquely British brand and driving the Seven is the most fun you can have behind the wheel. They might look very different to your normal road car but they are surprisingly intuitive to drive.”
