Danica swaps race suit for bikini

Last year, Indycar driver Danica Patrick caused a stir when she posted her first ever race win. She is sure to have boosted her fan club membership even further with a series of revealing photos for the swimsuit edition of the 'Sports Illustrated' magazine. After such a successful season in 2008, it was clear that she was going to give a repeat performance (of sorts) in 2009. In the gallery below, you'll find the first bikini-clad shots of Danica on the bonnet of a no less attractive AC Cobra. Now all she needs to do is follow up on the track.
