Race of Champions falls victim to Bangkok unrest

Organisers of the Race of Champions have been forced to postpone this year's event due to the current political unrest in Thailand.

The annual end-of-season motor racing jamboree involving Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher, among others, was due to take place at Bangkok's Rajamangala Stadium on 14-15 December. But due to violent anti-government demonstrations it has been cancelled.
