Seat returns to WTCC in 2013

Following a successful return to the World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) with a new 1.6-litre turbo engine last year, SEAT Sport has announced that it will support four teams for the 2013 season. The SEAT Leon WTCC goes under starter’s orders once more.

Running the SEAT Leon WTCC this year are four teams: Campos Racing (Spain); Tuenti Racing Team (Spain); Special Tuning Racing (Great Britain); and Münnich Motorsport (Germany). Reigning World Touring Car Champion Robert Huff will drive for the latter team, in the cockpit of the Leon WTCC bearing number 1.

At the heart of SEAT’s touring car racer is the 1.6-litre turbo petrol engine with an output of 310 PS and a maximum torque of 410 Nm. Last season, the turbocharged powerhouse – developed by SEAT Sport – made it very obvious that it possesses all of the performance and endurance called for in every single WTCC race. The Leon WTCC is based on the five-door Mk II SEAT Leon CUPRA and has been modified by SEAT Sport engineers in accordance with the official rules laid down by the FIA for international competition.
