Race of Champions: Romain Grosjean will try to repeat 2012
Formula 1 star Romain Grosjean has become the latest driver to sign up for the 2015 Race Of Champions to be held on November 20-21 at London’s former Olympic Stadium. Grosjeain is the fifth current F1 driver who has confirmed his participation at the 2015 ROC, together with Sebastian Vettel, Nico Hulkenberg, Felipe Massa and Daniel Ricciardo.
Grosjean is one of the few drivers who has already won the Race of Champions. He became the ‘Champion of Champions’ at Bangkok in 2012, after winning the final round against Tom Kristensen.
Kristensen will also be back in a ROC field that includes reigning World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg, reigning Formula E Champion Nelson Piquet Jr, former double BTCC champion Jason Plato, Williams Martini Racing’s Official Test Driver Susie Wolff, reigning ROC Champion of Champions David Coulthard plus MotoGP world champions Mick Doohan and Jorge Lorenzo.
Grosjean said: “I’m delighted to be coming back to the Race Of Champions. This is a great event and there are so many reasons that we all want to return every year. The main thing is that everyone involved just loves racing and driving different cars – so trying out such a wide range of machinery is driving heaven for all of us. Then there’s the fact that you meet different champions and people you don’t have the chance to meet during the year. So we all have a lot of fun off the track but when we get in the cars everyone races at 100 percent – and I’m no different. Rest assured I’ll do everything to win the ‘Champion of Champions’ crown back next month.”
