Who ever thought the Baywatch star famous for her slow motion running on the beach scenes would ever be a race enthusiast, let alone own and run a race team.
Well you better beleive it, because Pamela Anderson has started her own race firm called Downforce1, and will have cars competing in the European Le Mans Series as well as the International GT open series.
Pamela Anderson has been a long time NASCAR and F1 fan, and is taking her passion to the next level with Downforce1. ”Fast Cars and Fast women go together and here we are surrounded by men I love it,” said Pam on the sidelines of a NASCAR race. The team will run an Aston Martin Vantage GT2 in the ELMS. The car will sport a white and blue livery, which Anderson refers to as “her signature color.”
Team Downforce1 will be lead by David Prewitt, the team manager, with Giulio Pucci named as the sporting director and Gabor Csabi as the chief engineer. Markus Fux, a man of many hats, is the team coordinator, chief marketing officer and the sole driver listed on the website.
Sponsors include People For The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), of which Anderson has been an active supported throughout her career, as well as ICM, the talent agency that manages Anderson’s career.
Pamela has also announced her intent to have a Nascar team assembled by 2013, of which she will surely be the mascot.
