David Coulthard Will Compete Once Again In The Race Of Champions


Multiple Formula One grand prix winner David Coulthard has become the latest driver to sign up for the 2011 Race Of Champions at Dusseldorf's Esprit Arena on December 3rd/4th.

Scotsman Coulthard enjoyed a glittering Formula One career, taking thirteen race wins and finishing in the top three of the world championship five times. Since retiring from F1 in 2008, Coulthard has competed in Germany's DTM championship and now commentates for BBC's Formula One coverage.

Coulthard returns to the Race Of Champions and will look to continue his successful run in the end of season extravaganza. His best performance came in 2008, where at his home venue, Wembley Stadium in London, Coulthard took rally legend Sebastien Loeb to the third heart of the best-of-three final before narrowly missing out on the win.

Coulthard said: “This will be my sixth appearance at the Race Of Champions. It's a totally unique event and it's a pleasure to take part. Every year there is very exciting racing, and for the fans there's nothing quite like being able to see the whole track. I've come pretty close to winning it in the past so I'll dust off my helmet again and see what happens this time. But win or lose it's always a bit of fun to end the season.”

ROC race organiser Fredrik Johnsson said: “David has been a regular competitor at the Race Of Champions down the years, and he's a great character. He's the kind of person who's not only quick on the track but also a big hit with the fans, and that's one of the things that makes the event great. We look forward to watching him prove he can still mix it with the best next month.”
