Default Clampdown on MotoGP grid girls

Click the image to open in full size.


The Catalan political party Iniciativa per Catalunya Verds (ICV) is seeking a clampdown on grid girls in time for next month's Barcelona MotoGP race.

Soon after another party, Ganemos Jerez, unsuccessfully attempted to get rid of grid girls at the Spanish track, the Catalan party has now presented a proposal to the Montmelo town government.

The initiative seeks to end a tradition seen as a stereotype - that is, the use of women as sexual objects - at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Unlike the Jerez case, ICV is not seeking a full ban on grid girls, but the introduction of certain codes, especially related to dress, and for the normalisation of gender with the addition of grid boys.


This would apply to all events held at the Barcelona track, including future F1 Spanish Grands Prix.

For this initiative to go ahead, ICV will need the support from at least one councillor from another party from the township, something that does not appear difficult.

However, it remains to be seen whether the Montmelo government would have the jurisdiction to be able to force MotoGP promoter Dorna into a change of approach.

"The role the grid girls play today at the Circuit de Catalunya is not fitting of the 21st century, of a society that aims to be modern and egalitarian," ICV's Jordi Manils told radio station Cadena Ser Catalunya.

"What it does is objectify and vex women with a role in which they are a simple object and an ornament of the situation."

So who would like to see some "grid boys" then

I'm sure Girl Racers can have their own umbrella holding toyboys, just not many female's racing unfortunately.

I think this is more a case of the 'yes' men in ICV who find the female form abhorrent wanting to hover around racing paddocks to fly the pink flag, unfortunately one of the downsides of having a gay icon like Rossi attracting bottom spanker's onto the grid

I second that motion.

I mean, you need to be sure!


No one is forcing the "poor girls" to do it, they can opt out at anytime. Now, if you forbid them to do it... that's when it gets fucked up and you leave them without a job, which I'm fairly sure pays pretty decent.

They're taking this shit too far I think.

May be just policical posturing to attract more feminazis to vote for them, can't see how they will force Dorna to change procedures so quickly

Ah jaysus, moto Gp has near 20 strapping young lads in very tight leathers picking their thunderpants out of their backside while being filmed at close proximity.

A few birds at the start of the race just evens up all the fanfair...

ICV presents itself as a leftist "modern" feminist party, with all the insanity that it brings. It's the kind of party that would ban motorcycles if they could.
