Great drivers from all over the world have arrived in Riyadh ahead of this weekend’s Race Of Champions. And on Thursday they put in their first practice laps of the brand new ROC parallel track inside the King Fahad International Stadium.
The annual Race Of Champions brings together some of the world’s greatest drivers from motor sport’s major disciplines – including Formula 1, IndyCar, Le Mans, Rally X and Touring Cars – and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical supercars.
The competitive action starts with tomorrow evening’s ROC Nations Cup, when the drivers pair up in teams according to nationality. Then comes Saturday’s individual Race Of Champions, when it’s a straight battle to come away with the coveted title of ROC Champion of Champions.
As they tried out the all-new track for the first time, the drivers faced the media at the King Fahad International Stadium.
