The Race of Champions Returns To Wembley

Published: 26 June 2008

Schumacher is back! The battle to decide the world’s fastest motorsport star returns again to Wembley Stadium on the 14th December – and the seven-time F1 champ has already signed up.

Covered in almost 2000 tonnes of tarmac, the pitch will once be transformed into a bespoke circuit which will see the cream of the motorsport world go head-to-head on equal terms and in identical cars.

Last year’s winner DTM driver Mattias Ekström - who pipped Michael Schumacher in the last race to take gold - and F1 racer Sebastian Vettel have both signed up with more big names to be announced throughout the summer.

It won’t bust your wallet to attend, either – prices have been reduced over last year, and a further 20% off for those that book before then end of July means tickets start at under £15 – a bargain to see the world’s best drivers gunning for each other.
