Hunter-Reay and Whincup join RoC roster

2012 IndyCar Champion Ryan Hunter-Reay and triple V8 Supercar champion Jamie Whincup are the latest names to sign up for this year's Race of Champions. The event — which is being held in Bangkok for the first time — is taking place on December 14-16 and will

also feature the likes of Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. Mick Doohan will team up with Whincup in Team Australia for the Nations Cup. "After a career-best season culminating in an IndyCar Series Championship," said Hunter-Reay, "I could see no

better way to cap off 2012 than representing the USA and IndyCar, competing against the best drivers from other top-level championships around the world. It has always been a goal of mine and I'm honoured to be one of the few invitees to compete in the Race Of Champions."
