The socialite and heiress, who already has her own business ventures with a clothing and fragrance lines, has signed on with the new MotoGP 125cc motorcycle team. That's right, now she is adding another skill to her long resume.  

Lately, it seems hotel heiress Paris Hilton and former reality TV star 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 successful clothing line, a fragrance, music and books, and she's adding a new venture to the list -- a motorcycle racing team. AOL Small Business and Luxist reports 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. Beauty and business acumen couple together for this partnership.

Among the stipulations of the contract stipulates she must attend five of the season's 18 races, which take place all over the world, from Indianapolis to Qatar.
