The Miss Indy search is conducted yearly in up to 30 venues across Australia and New Zealand and has been providing an exciting and professional platform for up-and-coming models.
The competition seeks fresh new models and sets up fantastic opportunities for individual exposure by bringing the top Miss Indy finalists to the Gold Coast for the National Final held during the GC600 racing event.
“Over 10 000 girls have competed in Miss Indy since inception two decades ago. Through the Miss Indy exposure we have produced some of Australia’s most recognised sports and fashions models; some have gone on to become high profile young women that have formed long-standing relationships with the Indy brand and learnt valuable life skills over the years”.
Even though the Gold Coast Indy event is long since over, Casey will represent the Indy brand at the Long Beach race in California early next year.
