The journey to the 2010 Race of Champions began today as it was officially launched at Düsseldorf’s ESPRIT arena. The German stadium will play host to the event on the weekend of November 27-28, one day later than originally advertised.
The annual end-of-season competition brings together the world’s greatest drivers from motor sport’s most prestigious disciplines and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery. It has recently been held at the Stade de France in Paris (2004-2006), London’s Wembley Stadium (2007-2008) and Beijing’s ‘Bird’s Nest’ National Stadium (2009).
Now The Race of Champions is heading to Germany, to the delight of home heroes Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. Many more top drivers will join them in the run-up to the big weekend of November 27-28 – including racing legend Alain Prost, who announced today that he will be making his Race of Champions debut.
