Race of Champions cancelled
This month's Race of Champions in Bangkok has been called off due to ongoing political unrest in Thailand. The event, which had Michael Schumacher and David Coulthard on its list of high-profile entrants, was due to take place in Bangkok's Rajamangala Stadium on December 14-15. However, after anti-government protests intensified on the streets of the city over the weekend the Sports Authority of Thailand called the event off.
Acceleration testing started
