OVERVIEW

Mexican rally star Benito Guerra put in a stunning performance to eclipse 19 fellow superstars of motorsport and win the Race Of Champions for the first time on a thrilling afternoon of non-stop action and entertainment at the Foro Sol, the iconic stadium section of Mexico City’s Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez F1 circuit. 

The best-of-three Grand Final boiled down to a battle between Le Mans winner Loïc Duval and home hero Guerra. In the end Guerra saw off his French rival in two straight heats to become ROC Champion of Champions for the first time.

Motorsport greats Tom Kristensen and Johan Kristoffersson have stormed to the ROC Nations Cup title for Team Nordic. The duo defeated Team Germany’s Sebastian Vettel and Mick Schumacher by two heats to one in a thrilling final to wrap up a busy afternoon of action. In the first heat Kristensen beat off the challenge of four-time F1 world champion Sebastian Vettel by two races to one. This year's FIA Formula 3 European Champion Mick Schumacher struck back in style for Team Germany by beating Kristoffersson 2-0 in the second heat. But Kristensen, competing in a record-equalling 15th Race Of Champions, was just too strong in the decider, taking the ROC Nations Cup trophy for Team Nordic. 
 

Earlier in the weekend, James Baldwin came out on top in the eROC World Final between some of the world’s fastest gamers. The action took place both in real-life ROC Cars on the Mexico track and in the virtual world of Assetto Corsa. The Briton saw off the challenge of fellow countryman Brendon Leigh in an enthralling final to win his place on the ROC Nations Cup grid. Sebastian Job and Nils Naujoks also performed well but were knocked out in the group stages.

Before today’s action the drivers took part in the ROC Skills Challenge, a special course set up near the Foro Sol track featuring chicanes, slaloms, 360° turns and parallel parking. There was an early triumph for Vettel, whose time of 42.72s edged Kristoffersson into second place by little over a tenth of a second.
