Jodie gets ready to race

Supermodel Jodie Kidd is to swap the catwalk for a console controller to challenge online gamers to some motor racing action next week. The star will be taking on all-comers at 'Project Gotham Racing 3' in the latest Xbox Live 'Game With Fame' event.  Kidd will be chatting and playing with Xbox Live gamers on Tuesday May 30 from 5.30pm-7pm and gamers will have the chance to win a limited edition, black-cased Xbox 360 console. However, it will not be an easy challenge. Kidd is a motor racing enthusiast, recently taking second place in the Trofeo Maserati race at the Bologna Motorshow, with co-driver Fabio Babini.  She has also taken part in several Gumball 3000 rallies and held the fastest celebrity lap in Top Gear for some time. Other celebrities who have previously taken part in similar online events include McFly, The Strokes, Kasabian, Embrace, Maroon 5, The Thrills and Goldie Lookin' Chain.
