Jolyon Palmer and Pascal Wehrlein together again at 2015 ROC
Jolyon Palmer and Pascal Wehrlein, two young stars of international motorsport, will again compete together at 2015 Race of Championship at London’s former Olympic Stadium on November 20-21. They will join forces for Team Young Stars in the ROC Nations Cup, same as last year at Barbados.
At last year’s Race of Champions Jolyon Palmer came as 2014 GP2 champion, this year he is Lotus F1 Team’s test driver and in the 2016 season he will replace Romain Grosjean at the wheel of F1 car. Pascal Wehrlein is official reserve driver for Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team and newly crowned DTM champion. He was the youngest ever driver to be crowned DTM champion, a day before his 21st birthday. At last year’s ROC Wehrlein reached final race and lost against David Coulthard.
Palmer said: “I’m delighted to be back at the Race Of Champions this year. It was such a great event last year but as a Brit, being in London makes it even more special for me. It’s always a fun event, with some good competition of course and I really hope the fans enjoy it… I’m sure they will!”
Wehrlein said: “I’m really looking forward to coming back for my second Race Of Champions. I enjoyed it so much last year in Barbados and I nearly made it all the way. Now I’ll try to win it this year after my fantastic season winning the DTM title.”
