How to Become an Grid Girl
Okay then, here is the Envisage Promotion guide to being a Grid Girl…
What is a Grid Girl?
Grid Girls are hired by companies to promote a bit of sexy glamour to events. Most of the events where you will see Grid Girls have a Motorsport Events theme such as British Superbike’s, Superbikes and MotoGP. You can expect to see Grid Girls off the race track too at events such as Modified Vehicle rallies, Car shows and Owners Club meetings.
The glamorous girls don’t always go by the term Grid Girls either. Often referred to as Umbrella Girls and Paddock girls to reflect the motoring connections and the duties they undertake.
It’s not only the car or bike manufacturers that hire the services of the Grid Girls but also the various race sponsors at the motoring events. Grid Girl is the generic term (along with Umbrella and Paddock girls) used for this shonra of Promotional Model but the duties at the event may take the Grid Girls no where near the Grid! A lot of the sponsors use the Grid Girls to undertake Leaflet Distribution, Product Sampling, Data Capture, and work as Lead Generators.

There are some very obvious requirements such as looking sexy, having a fantastic figure (and not afraid to show it off) and being comfortable and embracing the attention that will come your way.
