Race of Champions: Susie Wolff again with Coulthard for Team Scotland
Susie Wolff, current Willams Martini Racing’s official test driver in Formula One, has become the latest driver confirmed for the 2015 Race Of Champions which will took place on November 20-21 at London’s former Olympic Stadium. Susie will be partner to David Coulthard for Team Scotland in the ROC Nations Cup, same as the last year at Barbados, where they reached the final.
Last year Susie Wolff debuted at Race of Champions and achieved worthy result in Nations Cup. She won two of her three races in the group stages, before the Scottish duo were eventually beaten by Team Nordic’s Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen and reigning FIA World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg in the final. Now Wolff and Coulthard will be reunited in a bid for revenge, with Kristensen and Solberg’s again reunited for Team Nordic. Other teams racing in London include Germany (Sebastian Vettel and Nico Hülkenberg), Australia (Daniel Ricciardo and Mick Doohan), Brazil (Felipe Massa and Nelson Piquet Jr) and England (Jason Plato plus another driver still to be announced).
Originally from Oban in Scotland, with maiden surname Stoddard, Susie spent seven years racing in Germany’s DTM touring car series before joining the Williams F1 team in April 2012. In October 2011 she married Toto Wolff, current executive director of the Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula One Team.
“Last year was a fantastic experience so I’m delighted to be coming back to the Race Of Champions. It’s a very challenging event, you just go in and try to find the limit as quickly as possible in all the different cars while trying to avoid mistakes – all of it against some of the world’s best drivers. But it was great to have David as my team-mate last year and even better to reach the final of the ROC Nations Cup. Now we can hopefully count on some extra support in London so we’ll try our best to do it again. I can’t wait to get back out there enjoying the adrenalin of racing once more,” said Susie.
