Whilst receiving their keys, some players were given driving and safety tips from Oliver Gavin, a Corvette Racing driver and four-times winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Wayne Rooney was pleased with his Camaro Coupe, telling us: “It’s great, it obviously looks great and I’m excited to drive it. I think when I saw them all together this was the one that suited me best, it looks nice and will drive well too. I chose a manual as I think it’s great to get full use from a sports car.”
Michael Carrick was pleased to get back behind the wheel of a sportscar with his Corvette GS. "I haven’t had a sports car for a while - I used to have a Dodge Viper - so when Chevrolet gave me the chance to drive this Corvette, I snapped their hand off!”
Robin van Persie, who opted for the Captiva, said: "I have two children, so this car is really good for me – it's a family car. It looks very nice, it’s a good car.” Meanwhile, Nick Powell went electric with his choice of the Volt. He enthused: “It feels different, it’s a lot quieter… it feels futuristic, especially with regards to saving energy.”
