Michael Schumacher will compete once again in this year’s Race of Champions (ROC) at Wembley Stadium on the 16th of December. The unique event will see the stadium transformed into a custom-built tarmac race track where drivers from several different categories compete in a series of challenges to reveal which sport has the best driver.

Schumacher took part in the 2004 event at Paris’ Stade de France, where he beat World Rally Champion Sébastien Loeb in a one-off challenge in front of over 62,000 fans, but missed out on the overall title to Renault’s F1-driver Heikki Kovalainen. “I enjoyed the atmosphere, both with the other drivers and in the stadium where the fans seemed to clearly enjoy themselves,” said Schumacher, who is also keen to highlight the charitable work done through Race of Champions.

Other drivers attending this year will be David Coulthard, Jenson Button and rallying legend Colin McRae. The event will help raise funds and awareness for the Institute for Cerebral and Medullary Disorders, which Schumacher helped found.
