A couple of years ago, we covered the ALMS race at Lime Rock Park.

Canadian girl gone Hollywood, Pamela Anderson, has announced that she has just launched Downforce1. Anderson’s primary claim to fame was for her role on the popular TV series Baywatch, and her infamous sex tape with former hubby, rocker Tommy Lee. More recently, the model/actress has been better known for a supporting face for PETA.
The team will campaign an Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT2 in the European Le Mans Series and the International GT Open Series. The car is to be driven by Austrian Markus Fux and a yet to be named second driver. The press release says that Anderson has her sights set on NASCAR for the 2013 season.
