When the HiQ fast fit network asked British Touring Car Championship fans to bring some extra glitz and glamour to this season’s grid, they weren’t disappointed.
With around 30 nominations already received for the Teams’ Championship sponsors’ Pink Grid Girl competition, HiQ is already facing an extremely tough task in whittling down the entries to a final 10.
But with the competition still open until August 30, HiQ is urging hopefuls to log onto www.hiqonline.co.uk, leave their details and stand a chance of becoming HiQ’s official Grid Girl at Silverstone on Sunday October 16.
The HiQ Pink Grid Girl was launched in 2009 to raise awareness of the fast fit network’s fundraising efforts for Breast Cancer Care.
Hundreds of young ladies entered in the hope of enjoying 15 minutes of fame in the fast lane, while winning a health spa break and the chance to be the official grid girl for racing star Tom Chilton.
Team Aon have again agreed to partner HiQ and allow the winning entrant to showcase one of their cars before the three races, in front of the live ITV cameras and thousands of TV viewers at home.
All budding HiQ pink grid girls have to do is send an image of themselves in pink regalia to HiQ, with a brief description why they would like to represent the fast fit network at Silverstone as it aims to hit the £100,000 mark for Breast Cancer Care.
A panel of judges will shortlist 10 entries, which will then be available for the general public to vote for online.
The overall winner will be presented with vouchers for a weekend health spa of their choice, along with the iconic HiQ pink race suit to keep.
The HiQ Pink Grid Girl competition will coincide with a huge fundraising drive at Silverstone on October 15 and 16, where giant foam spanners, pink hats and novelty headwear will be given away in return for donations to Breast Cancer Care.
Everyone will also be invited to dress in pink for the day to show their support like the last race weekend of the previous two seasons, when kind hearted race marshals also did their bit by dressing for the occasion, raising £1,000.
HiQ’s marketing manager Geraldine McGovern said: “Our HiQ Pink Grid Girl competition was so successful that we simply had to bring it back.
“We have already received dozens of entries, all from fantastic candidates so it is already looking like an impossible task to find our shortlisted 10.
“The winner will enjoy a day at Silverstone with us while working for Team Aon as an official grid girl. They will be part of a really special day and we hope as many people enter as possible.”
