Race of Champions 2011 // Pitting title winners and almost-winners against each other

Published by Bassano

Probably the last chance we'll get to see F1 drivers racing in anger until the season begins again, it's the annual Race of Champions!

Drivers across many disciplines race in a variety of cars to determine the Champion of Champions on a purpose built, 2 lane track. The list of drivers and cars is too long to mention but they are both impressive and varied, more details can be found at the ROC website. The races are short but can be very tight, creating lots of tense action.

Saturday is the Nations Cup where Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel will be defending Germany's title. It is scheduled to start at 18:00 (GMT) from Düsseldorf’s Esprit Arena. Sunday is the individual's event and is earmarked for 13:00 (GMT).

UK Satellite and Cable viewers can find the action live on Motors TV. Live streaming is available from Freecaster.tv and can be found here.
