IndyCar driver Ryan Hunter-Reay has confirmed that he will take part in the 2015 Race of Champions, set to be held in London on November 20-21.

The Race of Champions pits drivers from an array of motorsport categories up against each other in a multi-discipline challenge, racing for both individual and national honors.

Sebastian Vettel, Daniel Ricciardo, Jorge Lorenzo, Tom Kristensen and Nelson Piquet Jr. are just some of the drivers already confirmed for the event at the former Olympic Stadium in Stratford, London.

Andretti Autosport driver Hunter-Reay is the first confirmed to be racing for Team America, and is relishing the opportunity to return to the Race of Champions.

“I’m delighted to be returning to the Race Of Champions for the third time,” Hunter-Reay said. “Fredrik Johnsson and his ROC team put on such a spectacular event and I’ve really enjoyed my first two appearances in Bangkok and Barbados.

“It’s great fun to go head-to-head with some of the best drivers from the top motorsport disciplines from around the world. It’s a unique challenge to jump in and out of all the cars – when you get such a short amount of seat time in each.

“However, last year I won five out of my six races in the groups so I hope I’m starting to get the hang of it! Now I’ll see if I can convert that into a good run through the knockout stages too.

“I’m proud to represent America, IndyCar and the Indy 500 in such a prestigious event and I look forward to hearing the noise of the crowds at London’s former Olympic Stadium later this month.”
