    Appropriate to its billing as an all-star event, there was a little something for everyone at the Race of Champions in Paris, although the 60,000-plus in attendance at the Stade de France did some booing after some controversial calls in the overall finale.

    [result] Seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher added another jewel to his crown at the event, as he defeated World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb in a special head-to-head contest between this year’s two FIA World Champions. The pair squared off in a best-of-three contest in specially prepared buggies. Schumacher took first blood in the first round, making a brilliant start and showing off his ultra-smooth driving style to edge Loeb home by 0.1334sec. After the pair swapped buggies, to ensure that the contest was as fair as possible, Loeb hit back with a solid performance in the second heat to beat Schumacher by 0.3025sec.[/result]

    Waiting for the rebroadcast on the 18th. Saw just enough of it to she Schuey and Loeb in the final corner. Have no idea how or why they were the the last two on the course, though...

    This event was fantastic. I hope they hold it in the Stade de Paris every year. This is the true World Cup of Auto Racing. Not that IROC crap which they throw at us..... IROC used to be awesome back in the day though.... before Nascab took it over....

    And for Team USA, next year I'd like to see a combination of either Jimmy Vasser, Robby Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and Jeff Gordon.
