This is a little thought that I have had for a while, Celebrities in motor sport, be it pit crews, team owners or drivers. There are a few that spring to mind that have lifted the profile of motor sport by their status and ability, and sometimes lack of ability.
Some have become celebrities because of the sport, others may have become celebrities in another field after the sport and some were celebrities before motor sport
What constitutes a Celebrity?
a person who has a prominent profile and commands some degree of public fascination and influence in day-to-day media.one who is celebrated by his peers.
Kerry Packer would stand as the pinnacle as he pushed channel 9's exposure on channel 7's coverage, especially if you can get your driver to roll said car at bathurst while the world is watching.
