The V8 Clipsal 500 Supercar race is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing, other than a sea of bad sleeve tattoos and mullets. The inevitable roasting of the grid girls.Whenever this topic arises, I find myself rolling my eyes. Sadly, it is seldom men who spurr this debate, but predictably, more often women.
So exactly why is it that we should consider banning grid girls at our major motorsporting event?
Is it because women are being oversexualised? Perhaps being a grid girl is now an outdated concept? Is it that times have changed and there is a movement to protect women and have them viewed in a more meaningful light? Are grid girls sending the wrong message to the younger girls of our generation? Or is it simply that wives and girlfriends are jealous that their husbands are looking at attractive, alluring, women on the grid?
Potentially all of the above.
