Wanted: Ginetta grid girls

Ginetta is recruiting - ability to look good in lycra required, proper Yorkshire accent preferred

From boss Lawrence Tomlinson down there's something refreshingly old-school and to the point about Ginetta. Which means when launching a new model or parading race cars on the grid the Yorkshire-built firm doesn't go anywhere without a little army of lycra-clad lovelies. Old fashioned? Maybe. But who can argue with the charms of a six-foot blonde bombshell with a tray of food who, in a thick Leeds accent, will ask "Hiya love, do you fancy a pork pie?" Now that's what you call a brand ambassador!

And Ginetta is recruiting. It's looking for eight ladies to act as figurehead grid girls at rounds of Ginetta GT Supercup and Ginetta Junior Championships. Each selected grid girl will get a day in the limelight at the head of the pack at each of the eight rounds, held as support races to the BTCC. The 'adulation' of race fans and the chance to get your face (and maybe a bit more) on ITV4 are all part of the deal, together with a full hospitality package for the weekend in question.

Candidates should check out the full story on Ginetta's homepage for information on how to apply. An ability not to faint and collapse over the front of racing cars would be preferred but we'd hope Ginetta would keep its grid girls topped up with Yorkshire Tea to prevent such eventualities.

I'll do it. I'm 6'4", with long (hairy) legs, a 44" chest and 32" waist.

I look lovely in a miniskirt and wig.

PM me for more info, or fun times.

Me too. If they let you have a go in one on track, I'd do it. 6' 5"; 46, 36, no idea; 35-36" legs (of the hairy variety)

I'm not female, and I've never worn lycra, but I'm young, and I've been reliably informed that I have nice legs, and a nice bum.

Perhaps let the ladies drive and get some blokes poncing up and down the grid, let it not be said that PH is sexist.

What's wrong with going to an agency and getting some professionals in?

Oh yeah, they'd expect to be paid and wouldn't be fooled into thinking they were 'lucky winners'.

If you are able to take a friend or partner on the hospitality I wonder how many poor girls get their arms twisted to apply.
