They have been the underground story of the racing season in the UAE and when this video surfaced it seemed to trigger more of the debate. Now you see, the UAE Touring car Class 1 category allows the SEATS to run and unsurprisingly they totally dominate the race…I would be very surprised if a car that could easily take pole in the GTB section of the UAE GT Championship couldn’t snatch a race victory or two in the Touring cars.

For those that are unfamiliar with the SEAT, they are a factory built touring with lots of great touches and superb quality. As part of the regulations all the SEATS were to be restricted to 260BHP at the wheels to try to keep them in catching distance of the rest of the grid…however it still remains the SEAT show in Class 1.

So thanks to Dimitri at Top-Drive and ofcourse Khalid Bin Hadher we bring you some pretty cool onboard footage showing the intensity found in Class 1 of the touring cars.
