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, one of the most successful touring car racers in recent years, 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 (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.

He'll be supported by another reigning world champion in Team Münnich: Marc Basseng, who took the 2012 title in the FIA GT1 World Championship.

The current European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) champion, Fernando Monje, also enters the fray this season at the wheel of a Leon WTCC for Team Campos Racing.

"Motorsport is deeply embedded in SEAT's DNA and also ongoing proof of our technical expertise. With the experience and know-how of experts working at SEAT Sport, we have been able to offer a very competitive vehicle for all our customers," said Dr Matthias Rabe, SEAT's Vice President for Research and Development.

"I would particularly like to thank the mechanics and engineers at SEAT Sport, who have worked with enormous motivation to prepare the teams' race vehicles."
