Three-time World Touring Car Champion Andy Priaulx is set for a return to the 2010 edition of the Race Of Champions, which is being held at Dusseldorf’s ESPIRIT arena on November 27-28.
The touring car ace joins the likes of Michael Schumacher, Alain Prost, Sebastien Loeb, Tom Kristensen and Sebastian Vettel.
Priaulx has become somewhat a fixture in the RoC, this year marks his fifth year in a row of taking part. Last year he was partnered by Jenson Button as they battled it out in the final against Team Germany (Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel), the result went the same as the recent World Cup result with the Germans taking the win.
Priaulx said: “Every year The Race of Champions gets stronger and stronger – and this year is going to be an amazing event. It will be great to be racing in Germany with Schumacher and Vettel and so many other big names. I always thoroughly enjoy the weekend. I was told it was good fun but the racing is pretty intense and always competitive. The atmosphere in the stadium is special too. This year's Race of Champions is going to rockâ€¦”
IMP President Fredrik Johnsson said: “We're delighted that Andy is coming back to The Race of Champions. He is the most successful driver the World Touring Car Championship has produced and he is in good company with all the other great champions we've lined up for November.”
