Wembley confirmed as '07 RoC host
The 2007 Race of Champions will take place at the new Wembley Stadium in England, event organisers have confirmed today.
The annual event, which sees drivers from various categories of motorsport go head to head for the title of Champion of Champions as well as for the Nations Cup, has been held at the Stade de France in Paris, France, for the last three years.
And as revealed already three months ago by Motorsport News, the organisers have now elected the London Wembley Stadium as the new hosting venue.
"I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at the Stade de France and the fantastic French fans for the three great years we have had here," commented Race of Champions organiser Fredrik Johnsson.
"For 2007, we have been talking to some of the world's most prestigious stadiums and I can tell you this evening that the 20th anniversary event will take place next year at the new Wembley Stadium in London, England.
"But we do hope to be able to come back here to Paris again some time in the future."
Wembley Stadium has been undergoing a massive makeover in recent years, and the historic venue is scheduled to reopen in May next year after several delays.
The stadium was first mentioned as a candidate for hosting the Race of Champions nearly two years ago,
