First the NFL circus turns up and makes a right mess of the ‘hallowed Wembley turf’, now it’s the turn of petrolheads.
As this photo shows, Wembley Stadium is currently being transformed into a racetrack for the Race of Champions, an annual event that is taking place this year on 16 December. Drivers from different motor sports race against each other, in a variety of cars, including an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and a Ford Focus rally car. Michael Schumacher, Jenson Button, David Coulthard and rally star Petter Solberg are among the drivers set to take part. Perhaps they could also find a seat for out-of-work coach driver Steve McClaren?
