Race of Champions 2008 to be held at Wembley for second year running
25 June 2008

Race of Champions will return to Wembley this December, for the second year in succession. Michael Schumacher has signed up to the high-octane competition to take on a host of the world’s best drivers on a purpose-built track, which winds round the pitch at Wembley stadium.Thousands of motorsport fans attended last year, and this December's event promises to be as successful.After being beaten to the ‘Champion of Champions’ title at last year’s event, Schumacher will be determined to take victory in 2008. But the F1 legend said: “The great thing about The Race of Champions is that whether you win or lose it’s a lot of fun – all the drivers really enjoy themselves.”DTM driver Mattiam Ekstrom, last year’s winner, and F1 driver Sebastian Vettel are both confirmed racers. The full rostrum will be announced later this year. Organisers say the tickets will be cheaper than last year’s, with early-bird offers from £15 if booked before 31 July.

Yup it was bloody freezing, so this year take some Artic Weather Proof gear as you are sitting for at least 4-5 hours. Also advised to take a flask or 2 of hot drinks and gloves....worth it though and oh yeah don't take the wife!

Driven this week

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
