Robby Gordon’s Stadium Super Trucks and SPEED XX UTVs are coming to the Race Of Champions – both as a participant in the ROC main event and as a support race featuring aluminium jumps on both race days.
The trucks and SPEED XX UTVs will race among the vehicles in action at the Race Of Champions, while a standalone race after the ROC daily schedule will feature the same format of head-to-head racing as the main race.
“It’s cool to be coming back to the Race Of Champions next month, and to have the opportunity to introduce our Stadium Super Trucks and our SPEED XX UTVs to all the race fans in Mexico City’s Foro Sol,” Gordon said. “We know they will be mighty additions to the line-up of machinery to be raced at this special event.
“We’re especially thrilled that the Stadium Super Trucks will have their own separate support race once the main racing action has finished on both Saturday and Sunday. I know the trucks will be a first for many of the competing drivers – not to mention the spectators – but these 650 hp trucks have the capability to jump 20 or 30 feet off the ground for the length of a football field so either way it will be exciting.”
ROC President Fredrik Johnsson said: “Robby is one of the most colourful figures in world motor sport. At his first Race Of Champions appearance in 2001 he rolled one car, pulled off another spectacular save and set a lap record round our Gran Canaria circuit that still stands… talk about giving the fans value for money!
“But if that sounds good just wait till you see his SPEED XX’s and his Stadium Super Trucks, which are sure to put a smile on the faces of all the drivers – and everyone watching. We have greats racing from Formula 1, Le Mans, IndyCar, NASCAR and RallyX but I bet you will never have had the chance to watch them drive anything like this before. If you’ve never seen a truck fly, now’s your chance.”
The 2019 Race of Champions is set for January 19-20 at the Foro Sol, the amphitheatre forming part of Mexico City’s Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez Formula 1 circuit.
