A new fashion career for De Puniet's mechanics
They may sport faces that only a mother could love, but some of the Kawasaki Racing Team's mechanics are now considering a career in the fashion industry, after appearing alongside Randy de Puniet in a ten page fashion shoot
in this month's L'Equipe Feminine magazine.
The photo shoot, which was arranged by Randy's manager, Eric Mahe, took place at this year's Czech Grand Prix in Brno. The Kawasaki Racing Team pit box was transformed into a makeshift fashion studio, with the mechanics pressed into service as a backdrop against which the photographs of Randy and L'Equipe's fashion model could be taken.
Employed for their technical skills rather than their aesthetic qualities, there is no denying the fact that the Kawasaki mechanics are more pit walk than catwalk.
However, through the expert use of an airbrush and Adobe Photoshop, all five members of Randy's crew were made to look moderately presentable before the photographs were published!
