Supermodel and hot-shot racing driver, Jodie Kidd, has claimed second place in the Maserati Trofeo race held at the Bologna Motor Show, the only car show in the world that has car races actually running through the showground.

The English Supermodel shared second place with FIA GT driver and Pirelli official tester Fabio Babiniin in the Toora VIP car.

Jodie and Fabio, who had been the fastest crew in the morning semi-finals, finished second by a mere 0.7 of a second, behind Trofeo driver Andrea De Megni and Paris-Dakar driver Alessandra Merluzzi. Third came Italian motorsport rising stars Matteo Gamba and Simona De Silvestro, who were awarded a drive in the Trofeo race in Bologna by Italian Motorsport Association CSAI for their sporting achievements. Proving they can drive, as well as write, Autosprint journalists Dario Marchetti and Alexandra Gallo came home fourth.

Four special guests were supporting Jodie and Fabio at the Motorshow race: Paul and Jane Barry-Walsh, together with daughter Olivia and son Ed, were the winning bidders of BBC's Children in Need charity auction which took place earlier this year.

The prize, which was donated by Jodie Kidd, UK's leading private jet operators Club 328 and Maserati consisted of a return flight on a luxury private jet, accommodation, entry to the Bologna Motorshow and access to the Trofeo Maserati paddock area.
