VIDEO – Juan Montoya Wins Champion of Champions

The 2017 Race of Champions was held in the United States for the first time this year in Miami.

The Race, which draws drivers from many different series throughout the world, tests racing skills over the course of three heat races. In Saturday’s individual competition, Columbia’s Juan Pablo Montoya, in his first appearance in the ROC, won the Champion of Champions part of the event, defeating Tom Kristensen for the win.

“Today I’m actually regretting I haven’t done this before,” Montoya told the Miami Herald. “It’s good. It’s beginner’s luck. My wife said, ‘I want to go, you gotta do it.’ It’s a fun event.”
