Maxxis Babes to tour in ‘BabeMobile’
It will be hard to miss the Maxxis Babes in 2012 because the girls will be touring the UK in their very own BabeMobile – a VW camper van featuring a distinct livery purpose-designed for them by one of their legion of fans. The Babes will be using the orange and black BabeMobile to travel to rounds of the Maxxis British Drift Championship and the ACU Maxxis British Motocross Championship and to attend the various performance car shows and exhibitions that tyre manufacturer Maxxis will be supporting next summer.
Considerable renovation work has been carried out to make the vehicle a home from home for the girls, including fitting it out with an all-new interior, lowering the suspension, adding alloy wheels and replacing the headlamps and windows. All that remains now is the paintwork – and this is where performance enthusiasts who follow the Maxxis Babes can make their mark.
In a unique competition, fans have been invited to produce a design that will become the livery for the BabeMobile in 2012.
“We wanted to create even more of an impact with the Babes and decided that giving them what is effectively a tour bus would not only make the logistics easier, but would also provide another major focal point for Maxxis at promotional events,” says Maxxis International UK’s managing director Derek McMartin.
The competition winner will not only have the satisfaction of seeing their design turned into a vehicle body wrap, but will also be able to see their handiwork as they will receive free tickets to the Autosport International Show 2012, where the BabeMobile will be officially unveiled.
