Where's Cha-Cha Muldowney When You Need Her?
The Steve Fossett World Land Speed Racing (LSR) Team is looking for a few good women. New Car Net reports they want to recruit a woman to pilot their jet-powered car to a supersonic land speed record. The LSR team thinks a woman would be "an excellent role model to inspire young women in all corners of the earth." Oh, and they think it would attract more sponsors. And, coincidentally, the cockpit of the car was "built on the small size" so they think a woman would be "ideally suited for the task." Not just anyone can apply though. They're looking for someone who has "reactions and judgment proven in the top ranks of professional racing, aerobatic and experimental test flight." Didn't their mommas ever warn them 'bout messin' around with fast women?
Sounds like a professional (male) jockey could meet their needs nicely --- I call sexism! BTW, look at the size of those nacelles! (woo!)
Nopi should sponsor some hot young chicks to drift this thing.
I would think they could find plenty of worthy candidates at their local Hooters and get a sponsor to boot.
I have the perfect woman for the job.
