The incessant revving of motors, the choking fumes of burning motor oil, the sweat and grease of uniformed pit crew - who wouldn't want to be a glamorous grid girl? Now there's a chance for those who want to experience the glory without worrying about washing champagne out of their hair. In anticipation of the launch of the Playstation 2 racing game Gran Tourismo 4, Sony Entertainment is hosting a grid girl pageant - the 2004 GT4 Angel Beauty Contest. Entry is free, and the top three girls will receive a modelling contract with Starz People. The winner will also get a voice audition. Application forms can be obtained at California Red, select magazines and the Playstation exhibition venue at Harbour City. The deadline for handing in the forms is December 5. Sure, it may not be the same as cheering on the real thing, but at least it will be good preparation for if and when they finally get around to building that Formula Three race track here.
