A model usually present at auto racing events. They are typically seen wearing skimpy outfits bearing the logos of the racing team and/or its sponsors. Their official job is to hold a parasol over the driver to shield them from sunlight while their car is being worked on. Also known as a grid girl or umbrella girl.
The term race queen can be used interchangeably with the terms campaign girl and booth babe as all refer to models in skimpy outfits. Campaign girls can be seen more in trade shows and the like, specially those that market motor vehicles, while booth babes are seen in smaller booths, especially acting as booth tenders or helpers.
Due to the increased presence of women in motorsports and safety concerns regarding their outfits in pit lanes, race queens have been phased out of almost all major motorsport series, with Super GT, Moto GP, and Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters being notable holdouts - DTM even offering the option for male pit models to accompany female drivers.
