Dean personally turned up about 4pm today to deliver my car with one of the vans he collected from the Silverstone location earlier today. Some pics:
|My Caterham R500 on the delivery van ready for unloading..!

|Dean talking me through some bits
|Dean probably feeling the same as me right now... "I never thought this day would happen"
|The first drive - not worth videoing as it was over in about 18 yards.
|The R500 engine bay with carbon air box and carbon rocker cover.
|The 620R seats and harnesses - they really look amazing.
|I'll be spending a lot of time in here
|R500 carbon fibre track day air box with k&n air filter.

Why it's taken me so long to get a Caterham (no pun intended) really beats me - it's amazing to drive, handling superb, power brilliant (I'm only running it in right now) brakes amazing, and what really surprised me is the reception the general public give you - lots of looks, smiles, waves and plenty of nod's of appreciation.
First drive videos and so on to follow.
