From its 2010 inception, the Tony Fernandes-led team - formerly known as Lotus - has been based in Hingham, Norfolk.

In a media statement, Caterham said its F1 and GP2 teams will move in August.

"It became clear that we needed to house the car company in the same facility as our racing operations, to give us the best chance to meet our future goals on and off track," said Fernandes.

He added that the Hingham site will be retained as the home of Caterham Composites.
