This year's top 12 grid girls were chosen from over 500 applicants, a record number of sign-ups from last year’s competition. They will be part of more than 55 SingTel Grid Girls who will be tasked with holding the national flag of each driver and the number of his car on race day.

The 12 finalists comprise of girls from a diverse racial mix, including ladies of Thai, Taiwanese and even Mongolian heritage.

“It’s really exciting to be a grid girl! I’m really looking forward to meet new people in the coming months.  I also gained a lot of new skills during the course of the competition,” says finalist Tabitha Loke, 19.

Another finalist Joanne Alex Yeo, 21, is anticipating the day when she gets the chance to step on the racing grid this September: “I’m really looking forward to the adrenaline rush, the excitement and the thrill of the race.”
