    Caterham has teased the image above on its website, with more information promised in October. Although we're inclined to start the CSI routine when teasers appear, the tag line appended to the picture would seem to make short work of it. Caterham's mention of "Britain's most exciting race ...

    1331578620

    The English are mad. And we know this for two reasons: one, they admit it; two, it's true. If more proof is needed, a video of Evo magazine's features editor, Henry Catchpole, sliding a Caterham Supersport up a French mountain in the snow should be enough.
