Daniel French's third season of Caterham Racing. Competing in the 2019 Motul 270R Championship. This blog shows my full Caterham Journey from the build of the awesome R500 Duratec, the Academy Car in 2017, track day information, videos and race results.

Academy Car Build - Day Eighteen - Rear Lights
A bit of a disappointing evening, but I've been beavering away on the car every night for a couple of weeks now, and I didn't really have the 'motivation' tonight. However, I pressed on with finishing off the wiring of the engine, helped by the following picture from Derek Howlett.
Caterham Academy Car - Starter Solenoid wiring instructions
With the starter solenoid wired, I attached the fuel hose and connected the remaining wires up, then moved onto wiring up the rear lights. These had to be reconnected as the connectors were removed prior to painting.
Rear Lights fitted to Caterham 2017 Academy Car
The rear wing lights will be easier to level when the car is on the ground, so I'll do those at the end of this week... But, I'll have to 'dig deep' tomorrow night, for a big push - where the manifold, exhaust, breather bottle and hopefully the steering wheel will be fitted.
