The 2005 Race of Champions is December 3 at the Stade de France, and the Nations' Cup line-ups are starting to be announced:

Finland:
Marcus Gronholm (WRC)
Heikki Kovalainen (GP2)

France:
Sebastien Loeb (WRC)
Jean Alesi (DTM, ex-F1)

Great Britain:
Colin McRae (WRC)
David Coulthard (F1)

USA:
Jeff Gordon (NASCAR)
Travis Pastrana (Rally America)

Some thoughts:

I'll be keen to see the German team, but for now, my money is on France in the Nations' Cup. And really, are the Scots the only people who can drive on that little island off the coast of France? Isn't it customary to bring one's co-driver to these things? :)

I think it's just cool that they actually chose a rally guy this time around from the US. Of course, Finland will win it. Loeb can't deal with the pressure of performing under the hometown pressure. I wonder if it'll be in HDTV and live again this year. I didn't get anything done at work last year when it was on and went in super early so I could watch it in HD on 40 different TVs. It was awesome.

What I want to know is how do we get a Canadian Team?
Pat Richard and some one else?

I am sure pat would do great on the other types of vehicles as well.

for some reason I though they would be in the Canary Islands this year again on gravel, are they not suposed to alternate?

What is with Travis driving a trophy truck this weekend down here in the Nissan Off Road Challenge. I might just have to go to the track.

Yeah, Travis is driving a CORR truck this weekend. Anything to get a bit more time on dirt! :) And Jeremy McGrath is racing as well.

It also looks like we'll be racing another truck in an event just south of you in a little over a month. You should come down! We'll have lots of fun! Mex-eee-co!

Pat Richard and Jacque Villeneuve? Although the organizers probably only want international stars. Pat would be a great choice though, speaks French, well spoken and fast.

You guys suck. I'm assuming you mean south, like other side of the border. That's pretty damn awesome really. We talked about going down to crew for Justin Lofton at Pike's Peak. Need anyone :)

My supervisor used to work for Johns Mansville and they cosponsor with Centrix financial for the GP and CORR vehicles. I've looked over their cars when they've had them on display across the street here in Denver but that's about it. Who's going to be the second codriver? I'd do it in a second so I'm sure whoever you have would too. Pike's Peak, Baja, Race to the Clouds, Dakar, and 1000 Lakes. That's my to do list. Got one down so far, and hoping to get something set up for the Easter one. We've talked about building a Class 12 Bug for Baja.

Hey Grant,
What's class 12? Baja bugs are Class5, Class 5-1600 or the stock bugs are class 11. Are there new classes since I've been to Baja?
