On the weekend Myer Ambassadors Jessica Hart and Kris Smith participated in the Lexus Celebrity Challenge at the 2011 Australian Grand Prix and I’ve got some exclusive behind the scene pics of them clowning around out on the track.
Sadly, neither Jess nor Kris won the Celebrity Challenge, NFL Player Sav Rocca was the winner, with Corbin Harris coming second but excitingly Jockey Ambassador Giaan Rooney came in for the girls in third place and it came down to the wire, with Giaan pipping Shannon Eckstein at the final corner and Brian McFadden, who hit the wall on the final turn of the race.Â Go Girlfriend!
“Shannon and I were battling for third and we didn’t even see Giaan” said Brian.
Giaan was very ecstatic about her win sharing: “it has been one of the best weeks of my life, not just because I’ve been able to fang a car around but because I’ve also been able to do it with an exceptional bunch of people”.
Giaan also won the most efficient driver of the race, winning the Lexus Index of Efficiency trophy, which recognises the driver racing in the most fuel efficient way.Â Remember they were driving the new Lexus CT 200h hybrid car which internationally Kylie Minogue is the face of for her Aphrodite Les Folies Tour.
