Paris Hilton Starting 125GP Team
Famed socialite goes into the racing business
The infamous tabloid mainstay and great-granddaughter of Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton will officially present the SuperMartxé VIP by Paris Hilton team Dec. 18 in Madrid, Spain with partners Nano, Xavi Montero and Ricard Garriga.
The SuperMartxé VIP team will have experienced Grand Prix racing support from the BQR Race Team and Rossano Brazzi, former crew chief of Valentino Rossi, Marco Melandri in their 250cc GP Championship-winning years with Aprilia.
The team will enter experienced grand prix racer Sergio Gadea and European and Spanish National 125cc Champion Maverick Viñales.
It remains to be seen how the team will do in 2011 for the final year of the two-stroke 125cc class, but Hilton’s participation will certainly help to attract mainstream attention to the Grand Prix World Championship racing.
