SEAT Sport Announces Changes for 2011

Another year, another change in SEAT Sport's strategy. After last year the Spanish carmaker decided to pull out its works team from the FIA World Touring Car Championship and remain committed to the series only through customer support, in 2011 SEAT will switch focus on customer sports at different national and international championships.

The most important change is that neither the SEAT Leon Supercopa nor the SEAT Leon Eurocup will be organized next year in Spain, since the “aims of both competitions have been accomplished and have been highly successful in terms of driver participation and promotion.”

According to a press release from SEAT, the Spanish company will continue to provide technical support and race parts to several drivers who will represent the marque in championships such as the SEAT Leon Supercopa, SEAT Leon S2000, CER Spanish Endurance Cup or the European Production Series.

In addition, SEAT will also continue to supply customer support for teams running in the FIA WTCC series, as well as SEAT Supercopa national series in the UK, Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland and the Czech Republic or Leon S2000 in Belgium, the UK, Sweden, Denmark and the Dominican Republic.

We will maintain a high profile at national and international motorsports events, closely collaborating with all SEAT customers who participate at different championships, from track racing to endurance, and with SEAT importers who organize Supercopa races in Germany and France,” announced SEAT Sport director Jaime Puig.

In addition, we are widening our range of activities. We will continue to design accessories, which from now on will be assembled and installed directly in the SEAT Sport facilities, guaranteeing our customers the highest levels of quality. 2011 is definitely going to be a busy year for SEAT Sport.”
