Despite having officially withdrawn from the World Rally Championship at the end of last season, SEAT have announced works support for two teams - one of which will enter four rounds of this years championship.

The manufacturers return will be in the form of Cordoba WRC's run by the SEAT Telefonica MoviStar team, competing in the Spanish Rally Championship only, and the SEAT Repsol YPF team, which will enter both the SRC and four selected WRC events, including the Portugal, Catalunya and Acropolis Rallies.

Driving the Spanish marques machines will be Salvador Canellas, for Telefonica MoviStar, with Marc Blasquez and Michael Huete signed up for the Repsol YPF squad.

Of the two Repsol drivers, Blazquez has been chosen to represent SEAT in the four WRC events entered, after just five years of racing experience.
