The ROC or Race of Champions is an end of season event that takes the greatest race car drivers from around the globe and pits them in a head to head competition against one another. The cars are as diverse as the drivers and disciplines they represent. Last year we saw the Ford Focus WRC 09, KTM X-Bow, ROC Buggy and RX 150. Watching drivers like Michael Schumacher, David Coulthard and Tanner Foust in these different machines was truly a site to behold.
In the past the ROC has been at London’s Wembley Stadium (2007-2008)
and most recently Beijing’s ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium (2009) just to name a few. For 2010 however, Germany will host the event from November 26-27, 2010 at Dusseldorf’s covered and heated ESPRIT arena.
The ROC press release states:
The Race of Champions will take place on a specially constructed tarmac track with two parallel lanes winding their way round the Düsseldorf arena. With its capacity of over 50,000 and such local talent on show the air will already be white hot – but the stadium’s roof and heating system will get its own warm reception from everyone involved…
