In 2009 and 2010 Priaulx finished runner-up in the Nations Cup, while the man from Guernsey has reached the semi-finals of the individual competition on three occasions.

“I have always really enjoyed the Race of Champions,” said Priaulx. “It is a very special feeling to drive in a stadium, and I am really looking forward to sampling the atmosphere in Bangkok.

I have finished runner-up twice in the Nations Cup and hope that ‘DC’ and I can go one better this time. However, we are well aware that this will not be easy, given the number of legends we will be up against. All the guys know how to drive, and how to win.”
