Race of Champions to Ricoh

The Ricoh arena has made the shortlist to be the host of this year’s Race of Champions event. The destination will be decided by a worldwide fan vote and we would encourage everyone to show support by voting to bring this major international motor sport event to the Midlands.

The Race Of Champions is the only event where the world’s best racing and rally drivers from Formula 1, the World Rally Championships, Le Mans, MotoGP, NASCAR, IndyCar, Touring Cars and the X Games compete against each other in identical cars.

The Ricoh faces some stiff competition as others on the shortlist include Maracana Stadium, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Stade de France, Paris, France; Doha, Qatar; Bushy Park Circuit, Barbados; Friends Arena, Stockholm, Sweden; Commerzbank Arena, Frankfurt, Germany; Mercedes-Benz Arena, Stuttgart, Germany, and the Circuit of The Americas, Austin, USA.
