The Race of Champions is to feature its first female competitor as Susie Wolff has signed up for ROC 2014 at the Bushy Park Circuit in Barbados on December 13-14. Originally from Oban in Scotland, Wolff spent seven years racing in Germany's DTM touring car series before taking over as development driver for the Williams F1 team in April 2012. She made her first Formula 1 race weekend appearances earlier this year, taking part in free practice sessions at Silverstone and Hockenheim.

Now Wolff has the chance to return to competitive racing as she takes on a line-up of driving greats from all over the world at ROC 2014. Drivers already confirmed include nine-time Le Mans 24 Hours winner Tom Kristensen, F1's Romain Grosjean (reigning ROC Champion of Champions), 2014 Indy 500 winner Ryan Hunter-Reay, Australian V8 Supercar great Jamie Whincup and 2014 FIA World Rallycross Champion Petter Solberg. The rest of the field will be announced in the run-up to December's event.

"I'm so looking forward to racing again," said Wolff. "I have a full-time job at Williams, which is great, but nothing can replace the adrenalin of racing and I can't wait to get that back. So I'm proud to have been chosen to take part in the Race Of Champions and I'm looking forward to racing against some of the top-rated drivers in the world."

"Of course those will be hard guys to beat but as a driver you always want to do the best job you can. Still, I don't yet have any particular expectations because I've never competed at a ROC event before. I've never been to Barbados before either but the middle of December is not exactly the worst time to leave for a sunny destination…"
