Hamilton and Hoy Showdown at Race of Champions

hoy_hamilton UK racing fans have had a lot to be proud of lately with young star Lewis Hamilton securing a Formula 1 world championship. The UK’s star cyclist Chris Hoy also brought glory to Britain by winning 3 gold Olympic medals in Beijing. In a country that is crazed about competition this simply isn’t enough. A face-off between the two star athletes has been scheduled at the annual Race of Champions at Wembley.

The race will consist of Hamilton and Hoy racing on parallel winding tracks with Hamilton in a Mercedes road car and Hoy on his bike. The race will serve as the opening act for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards, which they will both be attending after the exhibition race.
