She may be famous for cavorting down a beach in a red swimsuit, but Pamela Anderson is now more likely to be seen in pit-lane overalls following the surprise news that she has set up a racing team.

The Baywatch star has been announced as the owner of Downforce1, which will enter an Aston Martin Vantage GT2 in the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) and the International GT Open Series.

Anderson has reputedly had a strong interest in motorsport for some time, and particularly Formula 1 and NASCAR, and is delighted to be launching her new venture.

"I'm so proud of the Downforce 1 team," Anderson said.

"These gentleman have achieved the impossible and built up a team in just four months so I cannot wait to see my cars on the racetrack - it's hard to believe until I see it.

"Look for us in white and blue - my signature colour."
