A Nissan-commissioned study found that nearly a third of children aged 9 to 13 years, believe that footballers and racing drivers have the most exciting careers in the world. Well, with individuals like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Lewis Hamilton around, it’s easy to see why.

The study prompted Nissan to come up with make full use of their partnership with the Manchester City Football Club, bringing together football and driving in an event called ‘Dream Job Swap’.

Four first team players – David Silva, Bacary Sagna, Fernando and Eliaquim Mangala got behind the wheel of a Nissan Juke Nismo RS in a gymkhana-esque challenge. Tutoring them are professional motorsport drivers Jann Mardenborough, Miguel Faisca, Ricardo Sanchez, Lucas Ordonez.

In the time attack challenge, we get to see the players try to outdo one another, while watching their instructors cringe at every mistake and spinout that takes place. You’ll have to watch the full video to see who wins in the end.

“Being able to make some of the country’s most celebrated talent accessible to our fans through this activity is what makes this partnership so exciting. Seeing the reaction from the players and drivers experiencing the dream job swap has been fantastic and we hope to get a similar reaction from viewers,” said Nissan Motors GB Marketing Director Chris Marsh.
