Venue for the ROC 2023

The Race of Champions has once again chosen the enchanting Pite Havsbad as its premiere venue for 2022.

To put it into perspective, Pite Havsbad is located a mere 60 kilometers below the Arctic Circle, truly a breathtaking location.

The fleet at the Race of Champions 2023

Revving up for ROC 2023, there are four speedsters vying for the finish line. Two of them, powered by electric drives, are a Cupra and Zeroid X1. The former packs a punch with a mighty peak output of 320 kilowatts, equivalent to a staggering 435 horses, while the latter boasts 246 kilowatts of electric power or 335 horsepower, to propel it to rallycross victory.

The other two competitors, fueled by biofuel-powered combustion engines, are no less impressive. The Supercar Lites car revs up with 320 horsepower, while the off-road Polaris RZR races forward with 181 horses under its hood. With these four impressive vehicles in the mix, ROC 2023 promises to be a high-octane event that will thrill audiences and test the limits of these powerful machines.

Weather forecast as of January 24, 2023

The skies over Pite Havsbad are set to unleash a winter wonderland this weekend, with snowflakes dancing down from above. But Mother Nature likes to keep us on our toes, so on Saturday morning, the mercury is set to rise, teasing us with the possibility of rain. Fear not, though, as come Saturday afternoon, the temperatures will plummet to an icy minus four to minus nine degrees Celsius, bringing back the snow for a true winter wonderland.
