    RD ROC new.jpg The Champions of 2016 fight it out in one final showdown. Have you got what it takes to be up there with them?

    RaceDepartment presents the first iteration of the Race Of Champions. The event will bring together the top drivers of our 2016 championships into one final showdown for glory. Three cars that couldn't be more different will test the drivers' skill and versatility.

    Earlier in the year, RDTCC with the monstrous Super V8 in Game Stock Car Extreme saw Ryan Seltzer clinch the title against arguably the fiercest competition this year. Sun Levi dominated the Australian scene with his victory in the Formula 3s in RD GPC. Erhan Jajovski and Hampus Soderberg tied for the Championship in RD Mini Challange, giving both of them a seed. In the RaceDepartment IndyCar World Series, Charles Baccio took the title by a tiny points margin. And finally, Sakke Leponiemi won 5/5 races he entered in RD MX5 Cup. The VSCC and RD GTC titles are still up for grabs, but the high quality of drivers across the field doesn't allow any predictions yet as to who gets the seed.

    Haven't won a championship this year? You're in luck. Eight drivers will be decided by winning special club races in our Automobilista, RaceRoom Racing Experience and Assetto Corsa clubs, so keep an eye out if you want to get involved.

    I'll try to qualify with R3E even though I don't think I'll stand a chance.
