|SEAT will continue their BTCC offensive with their 2010 Leon CUPRA R challenger|
SEAT driver Kptk92 is confident that his team can hit the ground running when the season kicks off at Sunset Peninsula.
Kptk92, who has drove for Vauxhall and Honda in the past, believes that he has now found the right combination of driver line-up and car to help him stake his claim for the BTCC title, which has been held for the past three seasons by new BMW recruit x Shuffle.
"I'm very confident that the car is a race winner from the off," Kptk92 said. "My new team-mate won the most races last season in this car which is good news. Not much has changed and why should it? The SEAT has consistently always been up there fighting for podiums and victories and I'm excited to see what I can do to continue the legacy."
Kptk92 was speaking at the Season 4 driver line-up announcement at SEAT HQ, where the outfit announced that they would also retain first driver o0o JAM1E o0o for the upcoming season.
"o0o JAM1E o0o had an up and down season last time out," read the statement from SEAT. "We're excited about his potential and to win the most races out of any driver in Season 3 is no easy achievement. We're confident that we have the talent in our cars to push each other to greater heights."
Kptk92 finished a distant third in Season 3, with his Honda team missing out on the Manufacturers title following the departure of FisiFan91 towards the end of the season. Manufacturers Champions Ford have announced that race winner oO Troggy Oo will be paired up with rookie BTCC Streaky F1.
The new season kicks off on Wednesday 8th February at the popular Sunset Peninsula circuit.
