Race Of Champions returns to crossover track layout

Next month's Race Of Champions at Riyadh’s King Fahad International Stadium in Saudi Arabia will feature an all-new parallel track design – including the return of its renowned crossover bridge.

For recent events at London’s Olympic Stadium and Miami’s Marlins Park, the Race Of Champions has adapted its track format. But next month race fans watching ROC Riyadh will be treated to a return of the traditional ROC parallel track with a figure-of-eight circuit linked by the bridge.

Track construction will begin tomorrow (January 19).

The brand new track layout has been designed by ROC co-founder Michele Mouton, the greatest female rally driver of all time. Moreover stunt legend and ROC test driver Terry Grant, who has driven a mock-up of the Riyadh course, has described it as “the best ROC stadium track ever”.

ROC President Fredrik Johnsson said: “The Race Of Champions has a long history of action and excitement – and this year will be no exception thanks to this stunning new track layout in Riyadh.

“Long-time ROC fans will no doubt be as delighted as we are to be bringing back our famous crossover bridge, and if stunt legend Terry Grant thinks this is the best stadium track we’ve ever had, who am I to argue?”
