"It's fantastic that the Race Of Champions is coming to London," the former Formula 1 race winner said. "Each of the events has been special in its own way but with so much racing heritage in the UK and as a Brit myself, to host it here in an iconic venue like the former Olympic Stadium is a big deal. I'm sure it will be the best one so far.

"I'm proud yet slightly embarrassed to have won it last year. There are younger and more talented drivers who take part but that's the nature of the knockout system. You get a chance to compare your driving with a wide range of different drivers in a lot of different vehicles. Somebody has to win so it may as well be me."

Coulthard is gearing up for the defence of his title with many more famous names from motorsport expected to be announced in the coming months as part of the build-up to the event.

Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Our wonderful stadium is proving to be the perfect home for sports of every kind, and the Race Of Champions looks set to provide motor sport fans with a thrilling two days of racing. I am sure the stadium will be packed out with Londoners excited by the opportunity of seeing some of the world's greatest racing drivers compete."
