Race of Champions

The two-day competition, which features drivers from Formula One, World Rally Championship, IndyCar and Nascar going head-to-head in identical cars, will be the first ever international motorsport event to be staged in the Asian country.

Saudi Arabia will become the tenth country to host the ROC, which was first organised in 1988 by former rally driver Michèle Mouton and International Media Productions president Fredrik Johnsson.

“Our organisation is honoured to be working with the president of the General Sports Authority, his excellency Turki Al-Sheikh, and Sela Sport chairman Dr Rakan Hussein to bring Race of Champions to the region for the first time in the event’s 30-year history,” said Johnsson.

The 75,000-capacity King Fahd International Stadium will join a list of prestigious venues to have hosted ROC that include Beijing’s Bird’s Nest and London’s Olympic stadiums, the iconic Stade de France in Paris and Wembley Stadium in London, plus Miami’s Marlins Park – the event’s first North American destination.

ROC is also in the process of finalising its 2018 season finale, which is expected to return to Miami, Florida.
