Need for speed: Paris Hilton has signed on as a co-owner of a motorcycle racing team.It seems hotel heiress Paris Hilton may have inherited some of her great-grandfather Conrad's entrepreneurial savvy. The socialite and great-granddaughter of the founder of Hilton Hotels has a clothing line, fragrance, music and books, and she's adding a new venture to the list -- a motorcycle racing team. Our friends at Luxist report that Hilton is now co-owner to a new MotoGP 125cc team, named SuperMartxé VIP by Paris Hilton.

The team behind SuperMartxé also organizes a dance party series of the same name on the island of Ibiza. (Hilton previously collaborated with SuperMartxé on a promotional video for the parties.) When they approached Hilton about being a celebrity endorser of SuperMartxé, she put the pedal to the medal and opted to buy into the franchise. Hilton's contract stipulates that she must attend five of the season's 18 races, which take place all over the world, from Indianapolis to Qatar.
