|I don't think the final battle does take place at a race circuit, as there's a new photo where Tony's out of armour in a Stark racing suit looking battered and bloody. But I dunno.|
I believe that is Rourke fresh out of a prison break, and that Tony, while racing and being the playboy that he is, happens upon him and all hell breaks loose. A nice introduction to Whiplash. But I too could be wrong.
And from /Film:
Don Cheadle, who replaced Terrance Howard as Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes, appears to be at some kind of court hearing. Sam Rockwell appears in the background as the fast-talking weapons manufacturer Justin Hammer. Jon Favreau and Robert Downey Jr. watching playback from a boxing ring.
Tony Stark talking to Gwyenth Paltrow, who returns as Pepper Potts, in what appears to be a court room, possibly the same one from the Rhodes photo.
