2011 Race of Champions
Previous: 2010 Next: 2012
The Esprit Arena, the venue for the 2011 Race of Champions.

The 2011 Race of Champions was the 24th running of the event, and took place over 3–4 December 2011 at the Esprit Arena in Düsseldorf, Germany.[1] The Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt had been scheduled to hold the event,[2] but after Eintracht Frankfurt's relegation to German football's Second Division, the stadium could no longer host the event on those dates.[3] It was the second consecutive time, and third time overall, that the event has been held in Germany, after the 2010 event was also held in Düsseldorf. Sebastien Ogier overcame Tom Kristensen in the final to become Champion of Champions, whilst Team Germany took their fifth consecutive Nations Cup victory courtesy of Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher. Heinz-Harald Frentzen also won the ROC Legends Trophy after beating Hans-Joachim Stuck, Marc Duez and Stig Blomqvist.
