Grid Girls

Grid girls are a sight that can be seen at nearly all kinds motorsports events. Usually holding up placards standing next to racing machines in scantily dressed costumes, they are an attraction by itself. Unfortunately for the 2015 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) that will start this weekend with the Six Hours of Silverstone, there will be no grid girls!

“From Silverstone next week, you will see that for any race we will do – no grid girls like in the past. For me that is the past.” said WEC CEO Gerard Neveu in a news report to Reuters.

We’re not sure of the reasoning behind this move, but the report also stated that in the FIA WEC Twitter commented saying, “On the grid we believe cars are the beauties.”

Fans will be disappointed.
