Race of Champions, WembleySeven time Formula One World Champion Michael Schumacher could soon challenge the youngest driver to win an F1 championship, Lewis Hamilton. Fredrik Johnsson, the organiser of the historic Race of Champions event said so during a press conference: “Lewis has said that he wants to do it,” said Johnsson. “It’s a question of whether the team will let him and whether it is possible with his obviously very busy schedule at the moment. The invitation is open. We’ve got a second space on Team F1 Racing Great Britain next to David Coulthard.”

Created in 1988 by International Media Productions President Fredrik Johnsson and the world’s best female rally driver, Michele Mouton, the Race of Champions (RoC) remains the only opportunity for drivers to race in exactly the same cars and on a parallel track. Using identical equipment and track, drivers can prove themselves based on their talent alone.

This year, sixteen drivers will compete in a series of knockout heats in their own division to determine their class champion. Then, in a shoot-out to determine who is the master of motorsport, the winners from the two divisions will go head-to-head in a super final. The winner will be rewarded with the title “The Champion of Champions”.
