As we discussed earlier this week, much to the disgust of most of the real motorcycle world, Paris Hilton is to join up with BQR to form a racing team in Motogp next year for the 125cc class. The team will be named SuperMartxé VIP by Paris Hilton.
We should expect more press and attendance at the 125 class races if she'll be making appearances with the team. On December 13th, Paris tweeted "I Love Motorcycles :) " firing off the opening comment to her 3-million plus fans.
The riders for the team will be Sergio Gadea and Maverick Viñales with the lead mechanic Rossano Brazzi. Sergio Gadea rode in the Moto2 series last year with Ponz Kalex and Maverick Viñales, who took his first National Championship title at just 15 years of age, are bound to taking several podiums in the next season. Rossano Brazzi, former chief mechanic to Valentino Rossi, Luca Cadalora, and Marco Melandri, will keep the motorcycles running for the heiress.
I personally don't think that Hilton will make any significant impact on the sport. It will, however, give her a valid excuse to walk around in leathers.
