For 2014 the venue of the annual Race of Champions will see a shift from last time’s Rajamangala Stadium, Bangkok to the Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados. The venue was selected with the help of a selection process that asked fans to cast a vote on Facebook, Twitter and the official website. Bushy Park Circuit was one of the most popular choices – and after final discussions with all the leading contenders, the Barbados venue has now been selected to stage RoC 2014.

 

Race of Champions is an end-of-season annual event that brings together participants from all motorsport arenas including Formula1, MotoGP, 24 Hours of Le Mans and World Rally Championship and more to compete against each other in identical machinery.

ROC organiser Fredrik Johnsson said, “Hosting ROC at a circuit marks a break from our last ten years of stadium events but this is a throwback to our long-time home at Gran Canaria, which hosted the Race of Champions from 1992 to 2003. We will certainly return to stadium events in the future but for 2014 we will take advantage of the available space to build a truly spectacular ROC parallel track at Bushy Park. We now look forward to seeing a packed house for a guaranteed weekend of thrills in December.”

 

The Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados will play host to the biggest RoC event yet. It will not only house the specially constructed tarmac track with parallel lanes linked by a crossover bridge but more specifically designed tests to make the event more interesting. These tests will include chicanes, slaloms, 360˚ and 180˚ turns and parallel parking. 

 

After missing out last year, RoC will once again be part of the calendar but unfortunately we might not get to see the German duo of Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher take on the track to defend their title owing to the seven-time F1 champion’s medical condition.
