    ROC Nations Cup

Birth Date: 8 August 1974

Birthplace: Guernsey, Channel Islands

Andy Priaulx is a legend of tin-top racing having taken three straight titles in the World Touring Car Championship between 2005 and 2007.

Priaulx, driving for BMW, had also won the previous year’s European Touring Car Championship, making it four titles on the trot in a series where weight penalties are applied, supposedly to stop any driver from dominating.

He has since branched out into other forms of racing, with stints in the DTM and British Touring Car Championship followed by a factory call-up to Ford Chip Ganassi Racing’s FIA WEC and Le Mans 24 Hours GTE Pro squad.

The Guernseyman reached his first ROC Nations Cup final in 2009 alongside Formula 1 world champion Jenson Button. He repeated the feat in 2010 with fellow tin-top specialist Jason Plato, defeating Team Germany's Sebastian Vettel before narrowly losing out to Michael Schumacher in the tie-break. However, it was on home ground at London’s Olympic Stadium in 2015 that Priaulx and Plato produced their greatest performance en route to the ROC Nations Cup title. Priaulx has also reached the individual Race Of Champions semi-finals three times, most recently in 2010.
