British supermodel Jodie Kidd is arguably better known for her body of work on cars than in cars, but that could be changing. The winsome blonde counts motorsports among her chief preoccupations, and its hardly the stuff of hanging out in Formula One paddocks as driver arm jewelry. Ms. Kidd is actually becoming increasingly distinguished as a wheelwoman herself, notably for her fastest celebrity lap time on Top Gear, and more recently, for co-driving in a Trofeo Maserati race with Fabio Babani during a Bologna Motorshow event last December (where she finished second). She is also a multiple-Gumball Rally veteran.

Now, Kidd's teaming up to promote Project Gotham Racing 3, 'Game With Fame.' Next Tuesday, May 30, she'll duke it out on the pixilated tracks of the video game, chatting and racing again online gamers around the globe in the PGR100.

The UK's 'Game With Fame' series will also play host to celebrity entrants like Maroon 5, The Strokes, and Kasabian.

      If the average person has never heard of her, then she isn't a "supermodel"!

      If I had a car I would surely like to race with her.

      Um, for the record, Jodie Kidd's lap time on Top Gear is only tenth best. Ellen MacArthur is first with a time well over a second better.

      Let me assure you Galley that Jodie Kidd is famous. She's a supermodel all right and has also raced in the Maserati Trofeo series in a 4200gt. I've seen shots of her in one of those Maser Enzo-clones too. Bear in mind that the average person isn't necessarily the same as the average US citizen.
