CT You don't fit in it with your "fashionable" shoes, no. But I do and The Stig didn't complain. It's a cliche, but you wear the Caterham like a straitjacket or a coffin. I'll admit that a couple of times I did consider that if it did end badly, at least I'd be prepacked and ready for the eulogy. But no matter what I did, it never failed to put a smile on my face... and isn't that the point of a performance car? Simple, effective, accessible performance on every journey. Mighty indeed.
