Face off: Mick Doohan vs Michael Schumacher in ROC, in China!

Mick Doohan vs Michael Schumacher? Yes, bring it on...!

Mick Doohan, 500cc motorcycle GP racing world champ from 1994 to 1998, will be returning to the race track in November this year. Unfortunately, Doohan won’t be back on two wheels, but on four. The Aussie rider will race in an interesting selection of cars at the Race of Champions, at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing.

Among others, Doohan will be up against like seven-time F1 world champ Michael Schumacher and Jenson Button. ‘The Race of Champions is a really fun event. I've got a great team-mate in Jamie Whincup for the ROC Nations Cup so we'll be giving it our best shot to win the crown for Australia,’ says Doohan, whose appetite for winning races apparently remains undiminished.

Other motorcycle racing world champs who’ve taken part in the Race of Champions in the past include Valentino Rossi, Troy Bayliss and Travis Pastrana. For more information on the event, visit the official ROC website here
