Who ever thought the Baywatch star famous for her slow motion running on the beach scenes would ever be a race enthusiast, let alone own and run a race team.

Well you better beleive it, because Pamela Anderson has started her own race firm called Downforce1, and will have cars competing in the European Le Mans Series as well as the International GT open series.

Pam has been a long time NASCAR and F1 fan, and is taking her passion to the next level with Downforce1.  ”Fast Cars and Fast women go together and here we are surrounded by men I love it,” said Pam on the sidelines of a NASCAR race. The team will run an Aston Martin Vantage GT2 in the ELMS.

Markus Fux, the marketing chief and team coordinator is the only driver as of right now listed on the Downforce1 website, a stable which will no doubt have to be added to if the team hopes to compete in NASCAR by next year.

Pamela has also announced her intent to have a Nascar team assembled by 2013, of which she will surely be the mascot.
