The new Seat Leon Eurocup one-make series, which is due to start 2 May, will
visit some of the world's most famous venues, including Spa-Francorchamps,
Monza, the Nurburgring and Silverstone.
Set to feature a full field of 330-hp Leon Cup Racers, the one-make series marks the next chapter in Seat Sport's rich motorsport heritage, which spans more than four decades. The Spanish marque secured FIA World Touring Car Championships in 2008 and 2009, while more than 450 race cars were sold to customers around the world during the 12 seasons of the Seat Leon Supercopa.
In 2014, the new Seat Leon Eurocup will visit six European circuits alongside the FIA World Touring Car Championship and International GT Open, commencing at the Nurburgring during 2-4 May. It will be followed by visits to Salzburgring in Austria and Formula One Grand Prix circuits that include Silverstone in the UK, Belgium's Spa-Francorchamps, Monza in Italy and Seat's home track, Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
Each race weekend consists of 90 minutes of track time across practice and qualifying, before a pair of 50-60 km sprint races, with attractive prize money on offer. Cars are currently available for 70,000 euros ($95,000), having been developed in recent months in the hands of Seat Sport test driver Jordi Gené.
