Let us mention that the tests are announced for the coming months, and for once, the fate of participation in the WTCC is still unknown, where Seat no longer cooperates with the factory teams. Nevertheless, Seat is very active in other touring championships (European, British and Scandinavian), and they also actively participated in the preparation of new rules for the WTCC, but Jaime Puig is the head of the Seat sports department.
