Sagna and Frimpong first to take on Formula One challenge

Footballers Bacary Sagna and Emmanuel Frimpong will be the first sportsman to take part in the awesome PUMA RACE OFF – a Formula One video game challenge which aims to find out who has what it takes to be the best in the fastest sport!

This summer, Formula One Star Nico Rosberg of the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS F1 team, challenged some of the best from the world of sport to try their hand in Formula One – in an awesome simulator.  

PUMA RACE OFF sees sporting stars such as Sergio Agüero, Cesc Fabregas, Michael Carrick and many more given the chance to prove their talent in the fastest sport – the quickest will have the opportunity of a driving lesson from Nico, before putting their skills to the test in a high-performance Mercedes-Benz car around a real racing circuit.  

Just before his own performance in the simulator, Bacary Sagna said:”I like racing, I love the speed.  For me, to get the opportunity to do it in real life would be amazing.  Winning PUMA Race Off would be incredible, I’m a competitor and I want to win everything on and off the pitch and in every situation I want to be the best. To drive a real racing car would be sensational.”

Nico Rosberg commented: “PUMA RACE OFF is a very interesting concept and I really like the idea of merging different sport categories. And,” he added cheekily, “I am intrigued to see how all these top athletes perform in a real sport!”

Emmanuel Frimpong will be next to take on the challenge and will have the video on Thursday, 13th September, 2012.

*UPDATE* Here’s the Frimpong video…
