Mazda Australia has announced that Ruby Rose has sign-on to the star studded list of celebrities that will race in the Mazda6 Celebrity Challenge at the 2013 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix.
The model and part time amateur boxer was quick to quip a few of her fellow drivers not from sporting backgrounds, but said it was the three Gold Medallists in the field she was most worried about.
“Last year I took up competitive boxing and if I can channel that into the racing, not the violent stuff of course, then I’ve probably got a pretty good shot,” said Rose. “I want to beat everybody because I always want to be number one, but really everyone with a Gold Medal I expect to come in front of me.”
The Mazda6 Celebrity Challenge will feature 20 vehicles and will bring together celebrities from a wide variety of backgrounds and disciplines to compete at Melbourne’s spectacular Albert Park street circuit during the 2013 Formula 1® Australian Grand Prix.
Drivers that have confirmed for the 2013 Mazda6 Celebrity Challenge include:
• Sir Chris Hoy MBE
• Matthew Cowdrey OAM
• Anna Meares OAM
• Em Rusciano
• Mark Beretta
• Rachel Finch
• Shane Delia
• Chris Tarrant
