About Race of Champions
The Race Of Champions is an annual end-of-season contest which has been held for over 25 years. It brings together the world's greatest drivers from motor sport's major disciplines - including Formula 1, World Rally, Le Mans, MotoGP, Touring Cars, IndyCar and the X-Games - and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery.
The former Olympic Stadium, the backdrop to some of the most memorable action of London 2012, will now stage its fastest ever race after it saw off contenders from all over the world to host the prestigious motor sport event.
The event is run over two days: first comes the ROC Nations Cup (on the evening of Friday November 20) when drivers pair up in teams based on nationality to bid for the title of World's Fastest Nation. Then on the afternoon of Saturday November 21 it's time for the Race Of Champions itself, when teamwork goes out of the window and it's a flat-out battle for individual glory.
In recent years ROC has visited the Stade de France in Paris (2004-2006), London's Wembley Stadium (2007-2008), the "Bird's Nest" Olympic Stadium in Beijing (2009), Düsseldorf's Esprit Arena (2010-2011), the Rajamangala Stadium in Bangkok (2012) and Bushy Park Barbados (2014). Now the event is returning to its European roots once more at London's former Olympic Stadium.
