While regular SEAT Sport drivers Rickard Rydell and Peter Terting will join Jordi Gene in racing with the new Sport Leon in Valencia this weekend, the team will still be running one Toledo Cupra in the penultimate meeting of the World Touring Car Championship season for young Spaniard Marc Carol.

The 20-year old from Barcelona was the 2004 champion in the Spanish SEAT Le?n Supercopa and his drive in the Spanish race with the assistance of the SEAT Sport is part of his prize for winning the title.

"I'm pleased that a driver who showed his talents in the Leon Supercopa last year can now race in the FIA WTCC with the support of the SEAT Sport team," SEAT Sport director Jaime Puig said. "It's something we plan to do again with the winner of this year's Supercopa. There's no pressure on Marc whatsoever - we just want him to enjoy the experience!"
