ABOUT RACE OF CHAMPIONS
The ROC, established in 1988, is an annual knockout competition where the world’s greatest drivers go directly head-to-head in identical cars. The event starts off with a group stage, where the racers face up to each of the other drivers in their group, with cars swapped round between heats so all participants have to prove themselves in a variety of machinery. The most successful drivers move on to the quarterfinals, from where it’s back to a knockout competition to get to the semi-finals and then the Grand Final. Over the last two decades in particular, famous racers from various motorsport disciplines from Formula 1, World Rally, Nascar, IndyCar, Le Mans, Touring Cars and X-Games delivered outstanding performances going head-to-head in spectacular fashion at the Race Of Champions.
