Slingshot racing makes history
The Race Of Champions is an annual contest that has been held for more than 25 years. It brings together the world’s greatest drivers from all of major motorsports – including Formula 1, NASCAR, IndyCar, Le Mans, MotoGP, Touring Cars, World Rally and action sports – setting them free to battle head-to-head in identical machinery. On January 21st & 22nd, the United States hosted the ROC, a first in the contest’s history, in Miami at Marlins Park. This year’s competitors included four-time Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel, Indianapolis 500 winners Juan Pablo Montoya, Ryan Hunter-Reay, Tony Kanaan and Alexander Rossi and action sports greats Travis Pastrana and Scott Speed. The Slingshot SLR was the very first 3-wheeled roadster to compete in the event's history and it is also the only vehicle in the race that consumers can actually purchase.
