    Race of Champions

    This is pretty cool....it's a cross between autox and Top Gear's celebrity lap.

    Starts April 5th on HD Theater. I've seen ads, but can't seem to find a link on the website.

    This is a very cool event. It used to run in the Canary Islands on an outdoor course. Now it's indoors - Paris recently and Wembley Stadium in London this past December. Current and former F1 drivers, rally drivers, motorcycle champs, and NASCAR drivers.

    Warning - the homepage of the website has spoilers.

    It aired on SPEED channel or maybe Versus at some odd hour back in December when I saw it.

    I was in Paris in 2004 at the time of the event, but had prior obligations. I did get to attend a parade they did for the event down Les Champs-Elysées with several of the cars that year including Schumi in his F1 car. I'll see if I can track down some photos from that later tonight.

    Yeah, I didn't click the link... I watched the 2008 event on SPEED or Versus or some other channel back in Dec of 2008. I think the last few years it has been at Wembley in the UK.

    It is a pretty cool event.

    They have it each year, but I was living in Paris in 2004 when they had it there. I only made it to the parade on the day of the event.

    My FiOS on-screen program guide shows it being on HD Theater at 9pm Sunday - only one hour though.
