Haas Formula 1 driver Romain Grosjean, three-time World Touring Car champion Andy Priaulx and 2019 World Rallycross victor Timmy Hansen have joined the line-up for the Virtual Race of Champions.
The Sunday 28 June event will be the first virtual edition of the Race of Champions, the traditional all-star event that was first held in 1988.
Haas F1's Grosjean is the first current F1 driver to sign up, joining the likes of Mercedes Formula E driver Stoffel Vandoorne and former WRC and WRX champion Petter Solberg. Grosjean is no stranger to the event, winning the individual competition in 2012 in one of his four appearances.
