SEAT Cupra GT – No More For Now
SEAT Sport is apparently distinctly unhappy with the racing progress
of its Cupra GT project so far – writes Sergio Fonseca.
The company will not
build any more cars for the foreseeable future. One car was sold
to Lois Racing (chassis 001) and the second car (still in the workshops
at Abrera and yet to be finished) hasn't found a buyer yet.
Meycom was close to purchasing
#002, but its Marcos LM 600’s performance has been so good
that the team has decided to stick with the big V8-powered car,
at least until the end of the season.
It currently looks very
unlikely that a Cupra GT will be seen in the Spa 24 Hours.
In other news,
Alfonso d'Orleans y Bourbon apparently has new plans for Le Mans
(next year?) – details to come.
This is the
slightly less appealing Toledo GT.
