There is twist with Hinchcliffe and Castroneves as Race of Champions are giving YOU the chance to be team-mate’s to Hinch and Helio.

To be in with a chance of winning the opportunity to drive alongside the Verizon IndyCar Series pair visit –

Speaking about the event Hinchcliffe commented by saying:

I’m really excited about the chance to be a part of this year’s ROC. I’ve watched this event for years and always wanted to be a part of it, so it’s a bit of an early Christmas present getting the call. All these incredible drivers from so many disciplines in one place, all the different cars to try, and we still have to vote for my team-mate! It’s going to be a blast!

Three time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves commented by saying:

ROC Factor is such an amazing opportunity. It’s a bit like American Idol; one moment someone’s singing in the shower and the next they’re becoming a huge star! I’m really looking forward to it and can’t wait for January 21/22.

“The cool thing about Race Of Champions is that every driver has a chance, no matter what they’re used to racing. The variety of cars means there’s something suited to everyone, regardless of whether they’re from rallying, open-wheelers or NASCAR. So it really is all about the talent. Plus, for me, to be competing at home in Miami is always great, especially as my family and friends will be together having a good time. And of course racing at Marlins Park is so unusual! I think the fans will really enjoy it and be coming back for more.
