Kurt Busch and Susie Wolff join 2014 Race of Champions field

The 2014 event will take place on the island of Barbados.

The Race of Champions has existed since 1988 and returns again this year, but for the first time in the small island country known as Barbados. The RoC wac cancelled last year.

The 2014 field is shaping up for the event, which will take place from December 13th to 14th at the Bushy Park Circuit. Defending champion and Lotus F1 driver Romain Grosjean will compete once again, along with Le Mans legend Tom Kristensen, five-time V8 Supercar champion Jamie Whincup, this year's Indianapolis 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, and 2014 World Rallycross champion Peter Solberg.

Susie Wolff

In the past two days, we've seen a couple new additions. The first is Susie Wolff, a former DTM competitor and current developmental driver for the Williams-Martini F1 team. She is also the wife of Mercedes AMG Petronas Executive Director Toto Wolff.

Kurt Busch

The second new entrant is 2004 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Kurt Busch, who currently drives for Stewart-Haas Racing and has won 25 times at the Cup level. He finished sixth in his Indy 500 debut this year, earning ROTY honors. He's also a former IROC champion, which was a bit of a cousin to RoC.
