Newly crowned Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel and World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb head the final list of drivers competing at the Race of Champions in Dusseldorf, Germany, on Nov. 27-28. The array of greats also includes multiple F1 World Champions Michael Schumacher and Alain Prost, Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen and NASCAR's Carl Edwards, fresh from wins in 2010's last two races.
2010 X-Games rally and rallycross gold medalist Tanner Foust is the latest driver to sign up: he will partner five-time motorcycling World Champion Mick Doohan in Team All Stars competition.
The racers will face off in a variety of identically prepared machinery, including by the powerful Audi R8 LMS, Porsche 911 and VW Scirocco, the ROC car, KTM X-Bow, Solution F Prototype, FJ Racecar and the RX150 buggy.
“We're delighted with the lineup of stars and cars we've put together for this weekend's Race of Champions, said ROC organizer Fredrik Johnsson. "The reigning champions from the two biggest series in motorsport will have a rare chance to pit themselves against many of the greatest drivers of all time."
