OVERVIEW

13-time Formula 1 grand prix winner David Coulthard put in a stunning performance to eclipse 19 fellow superstars of motor sport and win the Race Of Champions for the second time on the event’s first ever visit to the Middle East at Riyadh’s King Fahad International Stadium.

On a sunny afternoon in Riyadh, the best-of-three Grand Final boiled down to a battle between two legends of motorsport. But in the end Coulthard saw off double World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg in two straight heats to become Champion of Champions for the second time.

World Endurance Champion Timo Bernhard and DTM champion René Rast have stormed to a record eighth ROC Nations Cup title for Team Germany. The duo defeated Team Latin America’s Juan Pablo Montoya and Helio Castroneves in a thrilling finale to a busy evening of action.

Team Saudi Arabia (Yazeed Al-Rajhi and Ahmed Bin Khanen) thrilled their home fans in the Riyadh stadium by making it as far as the semi-finals before they were beaten in straight heats by Team Germany.

The weekend featured the first ever eROC competition between some of the world’s fastest gamers which saw Enzo Bonito come out on top. The action took place both in real-life ROC Cars on the Riyadh track and in the virtual world of Assetto Corsa. The Italian saw off the challenge of Britain’s F1 eSports World Champion Brendon Leigh in an enthralling final to win his place on the grid for the ROC Nations Cup and the Race Of Champions. French gamer Kevin Leaune and Germany’s Alexander Dornieden also performed well but were knocked out in the group stages.
