Ryan Hunter-Reay again at Race of Champions
IndyCar legend Ryan Hunter-Reay confirmed his third participation at Race of Championship on November 20-21 at London’s former Olympic Stadium. Last year’s Indy500 winner and 2012 IndyCar champion debuted at ROC back in 2012 at Bangkok and returned last year in Barbados. Last year he competed with Kurt Busch for Team USA, but now he is the only confirmed American driver for the event taking place in London.
Hunter-Reay is the most successful American driver currently racing in open-wheel competition, with more race wins than all of the other current open wheel American drivers combined, and the only driver to have taken victories in IndyCar, CART, ChampCar, ALMS and GrandAm.
Hunter-Reay said: “I’m delighted to be returning to the Race Of Champions for the third time. Fredrik Johnsson and his ROC team put on such a spectacular event and I’ve really enjoyed my first two appearances in Bangkok and Barbados. It’s great fun to go head-to-head with some of the best drivers from the top motorsport disciplines from around the world. It’s a unique challenge to jump in and out of all the cars – when you get such a short amount of seat time in each. However, last year I won five out of my six races in the groups so I hope I’m starting to get the hang of it! Now I’ll see if I can convert that into a good run through the knockout stages too. I’m proud to represent America, IndyCar and the Indy 500 in such a prestigious event and I look forward to hearing the noise of the crowds at London’s former Olympic Stadium later this month.”
