Grid Girls represent race drivers and teams or manufacturers on the race track and generate attention through various activities.
Probably the best-known task of a grid girl is to accompany the driver or team onto the track at the starting grid and hold an umbrella while the drivers are still busy at the vehicle to protect them from either strong sunlight or rain. This is where the name “Umbrella Girl” comes from. Furthermore, there are Grid Girls who mark either the starting numbers of the individual vehicles or respective sections of the track with their number plates. They are also used for award ceremonies and other media appearances in front of the press and fans.
Another area of application is car or motorcycle shows, such as the Essen Motor Show, Tuning World on Lake Constance or InterMot in Cologne. Of course, Grid Girls are always nice to look at in their eye-catching outfits. These are intentionally designed so that a lot of publicity is visible when they are photographed by the press and fans – a real eye-catcher. Our Grid Girls have a lot of experience in front of the camera and in dealing with visitors and guests of all kinds and ages.

If you have been interested in the world of motorsports for a long time or if we were able to arouse your interest, then you can easily apply to us as a grid girl. You should have a well-groomed and attractive appearance and ideally be photogenic and experienced with cameras. Grid Girls are mainly used as photo subjects and have to react and pose within milliseconds when a camera is pointed at them as they pass by. You can’t be too shy or quiet either – there are a lot of people at race events that you should be open and friendly with. They are not formal events: you are allowed to be loud, funny and quick-witted! The fans should see that you also have fun at the event and are not only there because you are paid for it. As the race tracks are spread all over Germany and Europe, you should be flexible and willing to travel. Reliability is a must! Certain appointments at a motorsport event have to be kept. Unpunctuality can mess up the whole schedule of the team and lead to big problems in the process. You should enjoy working in a team and with many different people. If you see yourself in this role as a Grid Girl, then apply now without obligation and free of charge!
With the modified translation of grid girl as “track girl”, it quickly becomes clear that this is a female person who works on race tracks. Grid Girls are models, hostesses and promoters all rolled into one, representing teams, racers or manufacturers to the public. While all employees of the racing teams are under tension during the whole race, Grid Girls have time and possibility to entertain the fans and make the event even more interesting and attractive for the visitors. Of course, they are always nice to look at and a real figurehead for the customer from top to bottom. As front face and brand ambassadors, they are the first contact and point of contact for visitors and fans. They are an important factor for a likeable image.
Since most motorsport events take place in the summer, being a grid girl is of course not a full-time job. However, for girls who like to work with people and find the spirit on the race tracks just as infectious as the many fans, it is a nice and varied job in the summer months.
Other not inconsiderable areas of use for grid girls are car or motorcycle shows, tuning meetings or other automobile exhibitions. Examples include the Essen Motor Show, Tuning World on Lake Constance, Techno-Classica in Essen or InterMot in Cologne. The outfits of Grid Girls are intentionally designed in such a way that a lot of advertising is visible when they are photographed by the press and fans – a real eye-catcher. Our Grid Girls have a lot of experience in front of the camera and in dealing with visitors and guests of all kinds and ages. Grid Girls who have already gained a lot of experience often also have a good understanding of motorsports or are familiar with some aspects of tuning. Many Grid Girls also have a private interest in the motorsport scene, some even do their own tuning. Of course, this meets with a lot of enthusiasm among motorsport and tuning fans. Especially in the tuning scene, many small communities are growing together. Of course, the grid girls also belong to these communities and are welcomed with open arms.
At some events, visitors are allowed on the track to the starting grid shortly before the start. They want to be close to the drivers and their associated grid girls once again and take photos. If there is a rush of fans or press, the grid girls are on hand, spying on every camera and charming them with a smile. For many fans, taking souvenir photos with the Grid Girls is a highlight. Some even collect autographs and print out their photos to have them signed at upcoming events.
The tradition of using Grid Girls in the pit area goes back to the Japanese teams of the 60s. While the use of grid girls in the pit area is rather unusual and not highly regarded in some European countries and is dismissed as a “pit chick,” the Japanese “race queens,” on the other hand, are highly valued helpers to race organizers and often have many fans. In Europe, grid girls operate less in the pits and more where there are more fans.
