Peppermint and Tess Tickle drag race for LGBTQ causes in heat two of ‘Jag Race’ – WATCH

In partnership with Jaguar.

By Will Stroude

Fasten your seatbelts (and your wigs), because some of your favourite drag queens are going head-to-head in the ultimate test of nerve behind the wheel – and it’s all for a good cause, too.

We’ve teamed up with Jaguar for a brand new online mini-series, ‘Jag Race’, which sees drag stars from around the globe drag racing to raise money for LGBTQ charities via the Attitude Magazine Foundation.

Hosted by Drag SOS‘s Cheddar Gorgeous, the series sees Courtney Act, Peppermint, The Vivienne and Miss Tickle sashaying into the driver’s seat of Jaguar’s all-electric I-PACE in a quest for bragging rights and big bucks for their chosen LGBTQ charity.

With more than two million viewers tuning in to see the the results of the first ‘Jag Race’ heat between Celebrity Big Brother winner Courtney Act and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK’s The Viviennethings are hotting up as we enter heat two, which pits petrolhead Miss Peppermint against the torque of Miss ‘Tess’ Tickle.

With a top prize of £10,000 up for grabs courtesy of Jaguar, the competition sees the ladies go head-to-head as they put pedal to the metal in a drag race over a standing quarter-mile.

With the overall runner-up bagging £6,000 and the remaining queens £2,000, it’s all to play for as the queens prove who’s the, erm, fastest finisher. 

The charities in play via the Attitude Magazine Foundation are the Albert Kennedy Trust, Stonewall Community Foundation, Sahir House, and Angel Trust – and you can do your bit to support the girls’ chosen charities by donating here.

“Forget these other b**ches” honey, it’s all about ME”, declares Miss Peppermint as she prepares to take on Miss Tickle.

“Today I’m Jag-racing for the Stonewall Foundation. It’s an organisation that helps uplift local comunity organisations and charities.

“I’ve got my eye on two prizes: number one, the charity money. Number two, both those tool boys.”

Miss Tickle won’t go down without a fight though. The Pride of the North East is racing on behalf of Angel Trust, a cahrity launched by her close friend and Gogglebox star Scarlet Moffat to help projects and individuals across County Durham and Darlington

“I am ready”, she says as she eyes her competition. “I was born ready.”
