Caterham Motorsport is working on a low-cost karting championship aimed to start in early 2014.

The championship is targeted at novice youngsters between the ages of 13 and 16 and will consist of six one-day events where a maximum of 120 kids will race each other in Caterham's CK-01 kart. The all-inclusive package will cost 4,995 GBP + VAT and include the kart, a paddock trolley, entry to the six-event season and necessary guidance for obtaining the ARKS race license.

No specifications were provided, however, a prototype of the CK-01 kart is being showcased on the company's stand at AutoSport International at Birmingham's NEC until Sunday. Looking at the photos we can see hard compound Bridgestone YDS tires and an IAME X30 125cc TAG (Touch and Go) engine which produces 30hp (22 kW).

Caterham says additional details about the 2014 season will be revealed throughout this year.

[UPDATE] In junior format and X30 will be restricted to produce approximately 20-22hp.
