The 2007 Race of Champions will take place at Wembley Stadium on December 16. So far Michael Schumacher, David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Heikki Kovalainen, Marcus Grönholm, Sébastien Bourdais and Andy Priaulx have been confirmed as drivers for the event.
The attraction of the ROC is that all the drivers race identical cars on the same circuit (two side-by-side tracks which cover the same distance). Eighteen drivers will compete in the knockout heats and the victor emerges “The Champion of Champions”. It is the only competition in the world where such well-known drivers, from rally and circuit, race on equal terms. • See Michelle Mouton’s Guest Column, page 31
