The Paris Hilton we know promotes perfume while toting handbags containing pocket-sized Chihuahuas, so it comes as a surprise that she is starting her own MotoGP team.
According to The New York Times, the pink-loving socialite will be part owner of "SuperMartxé VIP by Paris Hilton." The team is set to compete in the 2011 125cc World Championship. Paris will attend five MotoGP races as part of her contract. We don't really know Paris' motivation behind the unlikely move. At this point, the only thing we can say regarding her venture into motorcycle racing is, "That's hot!"
