The trackside Grid Girl outfits were unveiled today to celebrate 100 days to go until the 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide.

Members of the 2016 Grid Girl team were on hand to launch the new fashion inspired uniforms.

The unveiling of the outfits follows a host of exciting new announcements for the 2016 event, including; Enduro-X, the return of the Toyo Tires Stadium  Super Trucks and a huge concert line up headlined by international Grammy award winner Rob Thomas. 

Local fashion designer Liza Emanuele has produced the uniforms for the last two events and the outfits are individually made to measure at the designer’s Hyde Park studio. 

“The smoking hot red outfits were created as a marriage between totally feminine, pretty silhouette and a serious tomboy attitude," Emanuele said. 

"Featuring a fitted bodice with a fluted hem skirt, cheeky peek-a-boo mesh hem of skirt, the 2016 design also incorporates the trademark seatbelt design inspired by a V8 Supercars actual race car seat belt."

Clipsal 500 Director Mark Warren said the exciting 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide Grid Girl design will bring a fresh new look to next year’s event.

“The Clipsal 500 Grid Girls are wonderful ambassadors for our event and they’re sure to be a big hit again next year when they step out in their stylish new uniforms," Warren said. 

“It’s only 100 days to go until one the most action-packed Clipsal 500’s ever and we can’t wait. In addition to hosting the V8 Supercars season opener we’ve managed to schedule a total of eight race categories, another world-class concert line-up featuring Rob Thomas, plus the return of the Toyo Tires Stadium Super Trucks and one of the world’s most popular extreme sports - EnduroX,” Warren said.

The returning Aussie Racing Cars Championship is one of the eight confirmed race categories in a stellar motorsport line-up for the 2016 Clipsal 500 Adelaide.

Porsche Carrera Cup, Australian GT Series, Touring Car Masters, the V8 Supercars Dunlop Series and the Australian V8 Utes are also set to roar around the iconic street circuit on March 3 to 6 next year in what is Australia’s largest motorsport event, the season opener for the 2016 V8 Supercar Championship.
