The top 12 girls this year are the tallest in the history of the SingTel Grid Girls competition with an average height of 1.7m. They also comprise a diverse racial mix – including ladies of Mongolian, Thai and Taiwanese heritage. The ladies will be making appearances at road shows to drum up public support to emerge as the top three Grid Girls of 2011.
Starting 23 July, members of the public can vote for their favourite girls at www.facebook.com/singtel or via SMS and stand to win a LG Optimus Black mobile phone. Voting will close on 4 September and the top three SingTel Grid Girls will then be selected. Public votes make up 50 per cent of the final tally. These girls will win cash prizes of $10,000, $5,000 and $3,000 respectively, be at the front of the starting grid on race day, and be featured in a cover shoot for 8 Days magazine in the race weekend issue.
