Excited families in the paddock, racing drivers riding bicycles to get around, and even on the start / finish straight of the Circuit de Catalunya near Barcelona, I was able to observe the teams at the final preparations before the start of the race. Always very close to the action, this was possible during the SEAT Euro Cup Final 2016. Some time ago, SEAT Germany raffled 5 tickets for two people each for a unique weekend in Barcelona. To experience the SEAT Euro Cup Final, and even gather some first own racing experience the day before on a smaller race track. But above all, a lot of motorsport feeling. Not only for us guests it was a weekend which will be remembered for a long time. Even though he finished fifth in the last race, the Dutchman Niels Langeveld from Baporo Motorsport became the winner of the SEAT Euro Cup after the weekend.
The key to the Dutchman’s success laid in his durability. He won the most victories over the season, five in number, and also took 3rd place at the Nürburgring and three pole positions in a row in Silverstone, Paul Ricard and Mugello. With a lot of commitment and determination, the Dutchman has led this unforgettable season to a successful conclusion. After a moderate start to the season in Estoril (Portugal), Langeveld was able to win a total of three of the four possible victories. Two of them in Paul Ricard (France). The Dutchman delivered a thrilling duel for the win over the season with his main rival Stian Paulsen. However, Langeveld did not give up his pole position after the race in Austria until his memorable performance in Barcelona-Catalunya.
