Seat is rewarding customers who take delivery of a Leon Cupra R before 30 June 2005 with an exciting motorsport package – the Seat Sport Experience.

The package includes professional tuition at a track day, two tickets to a round of the British Touring Car Championship with VIP hospitality and two Seat race jackets.

The track day, which will take place at prodrivelive in Warwickshire, is designed to test existing driving skills, learn new ones and, most importantly, to have some fun. Seat provides the cars, so there’s no need for owners to thrash their own brand new Cupra R, and the expert tuition comes from professional race instructors and drivers familiar from Seat Sports race activities. This half-day experience will include auto tests, control tests, ABS tests and circuit driving skills, followed by a high-speed passenger ride with one of the Seat Sport racing drivers.

New Cupra R owners will also receive tickets and VIP hospitality for themselves and a friend at one of six British Touring Car Championship rounds between June and September. They can also observe the antics of the Seat Cupra Championship drivers as they battle it out against each other in race-going versions of the very same Leon Cupra R that they have just purchased.

The Leon Cupra R’s 1.8 litre 20-valve turbocharged 225PS engine and close ratio six-speed gearbox power it to a top speed of 150 mph and acceleration from 0-62 in under seven seconds. This performance is wrapped up in a 5-door hatch with sports suspension, deep bumpers, spoilers and 18 inch alloy wheels and Brembo brakes. The interior features black upholstery and red trim throughout, sports seats, climate control, electric windows and radio CD player.

It’s priced at £18,050 on the road.
