New Life For The Cupra GT?
SEAT’s Cupra GT failed to demonstrate anything like competitive
form in the 2004 Spanish GT Championship, but the project hasn’t
been shelved – writes Sergio Fonseca.
Spanish company, Sun-RED (Sun Race Engineering Development S.L.)
is working on the car to convert it to FIA regulations. They really
want to use an atmospheric V10 engine, replacing the "old"
turbo V6. Sun-RED has the full approval of SEAT Sport to develop
and race the Cupra GT.
At the moment,
Sun-RED has four cars ready to race. For 2006 they will run in the
Spanish GT Championship, the European Open GT series, and maybe
even FIA GT3s.
Roni Severin's RSV Motorsport tested a Cupra GT
at Barcelona and at the Ascari Race Resort at the end of 2005.
