Ahead of the annual media day for the HiQ MSA British Touring Car Championship at Rockingham tomorrow [Wednesday], SEAT has released studio images of the SEAT Leon TDi it will campaign during the 2008 season.

The team, which will become the first major manufacturer to run under diesel power in the series, has secured backing from Holiday Inn for the season ahead, which in turn see the works cars of Jason Plato and Darren Turner running in a distinctive yellow and green livery.

Tomorrow's media day will see both Plato and Turner getting their first run in the car as it makes it public debut, with Crash.net there throughout the day to get comments and views ahead of the new season.
