SEAT Leon TDI scores first diesel engine victory in the WTCC

SEAT scored an historic result in the FIA World Touring Car Championship, by becoming the first manufacturer to win a round of the series in a diesel engined car. In only its third race, the SEAT Leon TDI WTCC, driven by Yvan Muller, won the first of two races at the Motorsport Arena in Oschersleben, German today, ahead of the SEAT Leon of pole-sitter Gabriele Tarquini -- who continues to highlight how competitive the petrol-engined Leon is. In Race 2, Jordi Gene completed a remarkable day, finishing 3rd in his SEAT Leon TDI -- having started Race 1 from 18th on the grid!
