Harlequins rugby stars rev up at Brands Hatch

Monday, January 31 2011

Harlequins' rugby stars Nick Evans, Will Skinner and Chris Robshaw swapped rugby balls for steering wheels last week as they paid a visit to Brands Hatch for a driving experience day with team sponsors Alfa Romeo.

The trio, who helped steer their side to a win over London rivals Wasps in Abu Dhabi over the weekend, were driving the brand new Alfa Romeo Giulietta, and were assessed on a variety of disciplines including following instructions, changing gear, using the racing line and the use of power and brakes.

The competitive trio pushed themselves to the limit, but eventually New Zealand fly half Evans shone through to be crowned the winner.

"I'm not sure Will and Chris are happy but ultimately it was no contest, the best man won!" quipped Evans, who drives an Alfa Romeo on the road.

"With each lap I gained more and more confidence and got faster and faster across all parts of the track. It was a great day and we thoroughly enjoyed putting the Giulietta through its paces" he added.
