Raikkonen, Pic to race in Russia

by R-Sport at 22/01/2013 18:17


Formula One stars Kimi Raikkonen and Charles Pic are to take part in the annual Race of Stars on an ice track in Moscow next month, organizers said Tuesday.

The February 23 event at the Central Moscow Hippodrome features modified Renault Duster road cars in a series of one-on-one duels building to a final.

Flying Finn Raikkonen, the 2007 F1 world champion, came back to the sport last year after a two-year timeout in rallying and NASCAR.

He has ice racing experience, coming eighth in the 2011 Rally Sweden in the opening round of that year's World Rally Championship.

Raikkonen remains with Lotus in F1 for the coming season.

Frenchman Pic, meanwhile, joined Caterham last month after leaving Russian team Marussia.

Former Formula One drivers Alain Prost and David Coulthard took part in last year's event.
