David Coulthard Signs Up for Race of Champions

Adam PooleAnalyst INovember 1, 2008

This weekend sees the close of a 15-year career for Scotsman, David Coulthard, and, although we will still be seeing the 37 year old around the paddock as he continues to work with Red Bull Racing, this weekend is the last time we will see him wearing a helmet—or so we thought!

Coulthard's competitive spirit continues, and this year will see him, once again, enter the Race of Champions (RoC) at Wembley, UK, on Dec. 14.

Button and Priaulx form "Team Autosport Great Britain," with the former McLaren driver, Coulthard, one half of Team F1 Racing Great Britain, his team-mate is yet to be announced.

This is the fifth year that Coulthard has been part of the sporting extravaganza and was as delighted as ever to be taking part, "I've always enjoyed it immensely," he said.

"After a long, hard season, it's great to be able to kick back with an event that's so much fun.

"Without the pressure of the F1 season we can really relax and have fun with our driving, and that can only mean a great spectacle for the fans.

"It's also a chance for us to give something back to them for their support."

Coulthard, Button and Priaulx will be joined by fellow F1 drivers Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel, along with the retired, seven-time World Champion, Michael Schumacher on Dec. 14.
