SEAT Sport

After reaching its objectives in the World Touring Car Championship by winning two world titles in a row (2008-2009), SEAT Sport’s main thrust will be providing support to its customers in all types of national and international circuit championships. Likewise, SEAT’s sports division offers maximum support to those drivers who have chosen the different versions of the Leon (MK1, S2000, Supercopa and LR), racing in events such as the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC), the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) as well as other European championships such as the BTCS and the BRCC.  In Italy, the SEAT Leon Supercopa competes in the Challenge series within the CITE programme, and the successful Supercopa SEAT Leon is entering its third successive year in Mexico.
 
On-going continuous technological development by SEAT Sport year after year makes it possible to continue racing for wins and titles. In the World Touring Car Championship, SEAT is widely represented through its private-entry drivers and teams entered, providing proof positive of their confidence in the technological efficiency of the Spanish brand’s cars.

SEAT Sport also provides support for the Supercopa SEAT Leon in Mexico, the Ibiza Cup in Italy, and for those teams using different versions of the Leon in diverse competitions. SEAT Sport’s customer teams participate on a regular basis in competitions world-wide, ranging from endurance races such as the 24 Barcelona and Dubai events as well as numerous national circuit speed championships. SEAT’s technical and commercial services is key to the rock-solid confidence shown by customers in the brand’s cars, the reason why SEAT Sport continues to improve its support structure for private-entry teams.
