Article by Anita Panait, on December 2, 2013

SEAT is set to highlight its all-new Leon Cup Racer at the six-weekend customer racing series SEAT Leon Eurocup. The SEAT Leon Eurocup will commence in May 2014 and will span six European countries, with a significant money pot up for grabs. Of course, the series will feature the SEAT Leon Cup Racer, which features 330 PS and an extensive array of professional racing technology.

Matthias Rabe, vice president of SEAT SA for research and development, remarked that through the SEAT Leon Eurocup, the carmaker offers an “interesting opportunity” for customer teams and enthusiastic fans all over Europe.

He noted that the Leon Cup Racer is an extremely high-performance race car, derived from the new generation SEAT Leon that has won critical acclamations from customers and motoring journalists. The SEAT Leon won WTCC titles for SEAT Sport in 2008 and 2009.

The carmaker’s SEAT Leon Supercopa and Eurocup were among motorsport’s most popular One Make Series. The Supercopa championships were held from 2003 to 2013 in eight countries, and the Eurocup from 2008 to 2010 in nine countries.

Jaime Puig, Head of SEAT Sport and responsible for the brand’s motorsport activities, remarked that the SEAT Leon Eurocup will offer their customer teams “a great series for the 2014 season,” adding that the SEAT Leon Cup Racer is an “excellent vehicle.”

He noted that the entire know-how of SEAT Sport has gone into the SEAT Leon Cup Racer. SEAT will unveil the exact race calendar over the next few weeks. Each weekend run -- from Friday to Sunday – will include two free training sessions, qualification, and two races. [source: Seat]
