Spaniard Sergio Gadea pulled in an impressive third place finish for Paris Hilton's new 125 cc MotoGP team in the Qatar opener today... but we noticed something different about that bike that made the press rounds with Hilton in December. It was noticably absent of its trademark Hilton signature: the color PINK.
Since Paris Hilton’s announcement of ownership in the 125cc MotoGP Spanish racing team, SuperMartxe, bloggers and pundits have been logging overtime rolling their eyes. (If you Google the terms “seriously?” and “Paris Hilton”, you’ll get a page full of snarky links about the story.)
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.
There is nothing more intimidating then a screeching pink MotoGP motorcycle tearing around the track. Did I say intimidating? Maybe I meant laughable. I guess we'll find out when this beautiful pink machine takes the 125cc MotoGP circuit next year.
A Paris Hilton motorcycle team may be a little difficult to take seriously, but you have got to give Hilton some credit. She is getting a lot of people to talk about the MotoGP that weren't before. Even if they're saying things like, "are you f*&#ng serious."
