Pamela Anderson's racing ambition

Baywatch to burned rubber: Pamela Anderson's racing ambition

Pamela Anderson's career to date may have been more Playboy than pit lane, but the former Baywatch star has decided to dip her feet into motorsport by launching her own racing team.

The 44-year-old actress and ex-cover girl is fronting the Downforce1 team, which will compete in the 2012 European Le Mans and International GT Open series.

Anderson, more famous for sporting a red bathing suit as C.J. Parker in the hit '90s TV show than racing overalls, launched the venture earlier this month with the aim of competing in the 2013 open-wheel NASCAR series in the U.S.

"Fast cars and fast women go together," the former Playmate of the Month said on the team's website. "Here we are surrounded by men, I love it."

The Canadian is described as a fan of motorsport divisions "from NASCAR to Formula One" and hailed the venture as "a dream come true."

"I'm so proud of the Downforce 1 team," she said. "These gentleman have achieved the impossible and built up a team in just four months.

"I cannot wait to see my cars on the race track, it's hard to believe until I see it."

Women are taking over motorsport :hihi:

BTW, what does that mean: "with the aim of competing in the 2013 open-wheel NASCAR series in the U.S". Nascar has open-wheel series? :confused:

Maybe she, or the author of the story, doesn't know much about motorsport. I doubt her team will get into LM this year. The entry list (complete with reserve entries) has already been announced. :confused:

There was one published on a cricket forum yesterday about Sachin Tendulkar starting an F1 team named "Aai Laa Racing!", exclamation mark and all. :roll:
