The 2013 Race Of Champions will be held at Bangkok's Rajamangala Stadium on December 14-15. The news comes after Thailand, which hosted last year’s ROC, again beat off a wide range of contenders from all round the world to stage the prestigious event.

The end-of-season competition, held every year since 1988, brings together the world's greatest drivers from motor sport's main disciplines – including Formula 1, world rally, touring cars, Le Mans, MotoGP, IndyCar and the X-Games – and sets them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery.

Recent Race Of Champions hosts include the Stade de France in Paris (2004-2006), London's Wembley Stadium (2007-2008), Beijing's 'Bird's Nest' Olympic Stadium (2009) and Düsseldorf's ESPRIT arena (2010-2011). Now, with the backing of title partners Red Bull and Singha alongside other major sponsors to be announced in the coming months, ROC is making its second consecutive appearance in Bangkok.

This year's racing action will begin with the ROC Nations Cup on Saturday December 14, followed by the individual Race Of Champions on Sunday December 15. There will also be a busy programme of entertainment both on and off track – including stunt shows and demo runs on four wheels and two.

His Excellency, the Governor of the Sports Authority of Thailand, Kanokphand Chulakasem said: "We are delighted to play host to the Race Of Champions again. Last year's ROC was Thailand's largest motor sport event ever. It was an enormous success and put Thailand on the map for major sports events."
