The setting for the race will be the suitably dramatic Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, where last year's champ—former F1 pilot David Coulthard—recently appeared to brandish his trophy and pose for the cameras.

Previous cities which have played host to the contest include Düsseldorf, Paris, and Beijing. The 2013 event was cancelled after unrelated protests in Bangkok made the city unstable

While the race isn't sanctioned by any major racing bodies, for over 25 years, ROC has been a way for drivers from different fields to face off against each other using identical vehicles.

The 2015 Race of Champions is scheduled for November 21 and 22. More details as they come.
