The 2019 Rallycross World Champion Timmy Hansen will participate in the Race Of Champions (ROC) for the first time this year. Together with 2016 Rallycross World Champion Mattias Ekström, Timmy Hansen will compete in the Nations Cup for Team Sweden.

The two Scandinavians also have a home game: the 2022 ROC will be held for the first time on snow and ice in Pite Havsbad, Sweden. The track will be prepared on the frozen Baltic Sea.

Hansen won the Virtual Race Of Champions during the height of the pandemic in 2020. ROC 2022 will be Hansen’s first real ROC participation, while his teammate Ekström makes his seventh showing at a ROC WORLD FINAL and has won the individual ROC title three times.

Race Of Champions 2022 takes place from February 5th – 6th.
