Pink paintjob for Paris Hilton's 125GP squad

Not that Paris Hilton should be worried that her shock foray into Grand Prix racing would go unnoticed, the American socialite and tabloid media darling has made sure of maximum exposure after this image of her team’s livery leaked today. Hilton will make a dramatic career change in 2011 as backer of a new 125GP effort that will feature this striking...

No Joke

This is not a joke, this is a serious team looking to win the championship in the last year of 125cc. Ricard Jové will be the Technical Director with Christian Lundberg and Rossano Brazzi ( well known for helping Rossi to 125 success), so the team will be well-founded with technical expertise.  So what if it's Paris Hilton. Any new sponsorship, anything that raises awareness of the sport has got to be good( bike racing is a minority sport in most countries).

Your spot on CH987. Having Paris Hilton put her name to a GP motorcycle racing team is a real boost for our sport in making it more main stream.

Hilton is no Bint

She is a very shrewd businesswoman who happens to market herself in a ditzy manner for our dumbed down popular 'culture' vacuous times. She's printing money every time a spotty moron watches the tripe she puts on the telly.

This team is going to have profile and T.V time; of that there is no doubt. After Qatar we will all know who are riding the pink bikes. How many of us can name 125 teams and riders at the end of a season?!

My only question - apart from the rhetorical one just asked - is whether the riders will get to spend one night in Paris courtesy of the sponsor?

Somewhat lurid

It looks like part of a Barbie & Ken set. I dread to think what the leathers will look like. Still, the sponsors are gonna love it. Think of their visibility & the TV airtime they're going to get.

Team leathers?

Oh my god, I've just had an epiphany; Pink fluffy leathers with a pink fluffy helmet... Think Chewbaka announcing he's comin out in a strange parody of Little Britain & you're almost where my head's at.
