FastDates.com Calendar Kittens to headline the
2013 SBK World Superbike Laguna Seca USA Starting Grid on Sept 26-28th
Los Angeles, CA, August 1, 2014 - The FastDates.com Calendars & Website, in association with Umbrella Girls USA, is excited to announce that SBK World Superbike has selected three beautiful Fast Dates Calendar Kittens to grace the front of the starting grid when the World Superbike Championship returns to the Monterey Peninsula at Laguna Seca Raceway the weekend of September 26-28th 2013. The models include supermodel, actress, singer songwriter Sara Horvath who hails from Livingston, Montana, together with Jessica Harbour from San Diego, California.

World Superbike in America makes its return to Laguna Seca this September after an 8 year hiatus from the west coast's most popular roadrace facility. Together with the premier SBK World Superbike Class, the AMA Pro Roadracing Championship will also be joining the 3-day race weekend with its top classes including Pro Superbike. The first World Superbike Championship race in America took place at Laguna Seca Raceway back in 1995 with four FastDates.com Calendar models serving as the official SBK grid and podium girls on race day that year, and in many subsequent years since.
As he does every year at one of the SBK World Superbike rounds around the world, former pro motorcycle racer and Cycle News editor, design engineer, legendary FastDates.com Calendar publisher and photographer Jim Gianatsis of the motorsports adverting agency Gianatsis Design Associates, will use the 2013 SBK Laguna Seca September 26-28th weekend to shoot with the Calendar Kittens for the next edition of the Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar.
"This year's Calendar shoot will be for the 25th Anniversary of the Fast Dates Calendar, the first edition of which featured Pamela Anderson on the cover with Miguel DuHamels' "Big Papa" Yoshimura Suzuki Superbike," explains Jim. "Every year I've been privileged to have exclusive track access to photograph the Calendar with all the top factory race teams in AMA and World Superbike, MotoGP, together with many of the world's most beautiful models and celebrities."
"This year will be no exception with the addition of beautiful models Sara, Jessica and Rebekah. I've been shooting with them for the throughout the past year and they are all very professional and don't take a bad shot, plus they are fun and easy to work. I look forward to travel with them up the beautiful Pacific Coast on Highway 1 from Los Angeles to Monterey for the return of World Superbike at Laguna Seca, and show them the fan party atmosphere on Monterey's Cannery Row on Saturday night. It's going to be an incredible race weekend experience in one of the most beautiful locations on earth that no motorcycle racing fan will want to miss!"

2013 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show & Calendar Girl Music Festival Los Angeles, July 14th, 2013 - The 22nd edition of the annual LA Calendar Motorcycle Show marked its return to the Queen Mary Seawalk Village in Long Beach, CA with Southern California's Sam Baldi continuing his domination of 2013 season West Coast bike events by taking the Calendar Bike Building Championship's Best of Show and one of the coveted Mikuni Carburetor Trophies with his latest Jimmy Todorovith / Profile Cycles built Big Twin custom named "Lost Angel".
This year's Calendar Motorcycle Show continued it's long standing tradition of showcasing top Celebrity Builders in the Calendar Bike Building Championship, selected Vendors and Exhibitors, together with Calendar Girl Music live performances. And as always, this year's Show celebrated the world premier of the new 2014 FastDates.com Motorcycle PinUp Calendars photographed by Show producer Jim Gianatsis featuring the world's top SBK World Superbikes, sport and cafe bikes, and custom motorcycles with the beautiful Calendar Kittens. On hand throughout the day to meet with fans and pose for pictures were Calendar Kittens Apple Price, together with official SBK World Superbike grid girls, Jessica Harbour and singer songwriter Sarah Horvath.

Sara also performed her music throughout the day and and served as stage hostess for the Calendar Girl Music Festival. Headlining the entertainment this year was Lily Elise, a native Southern Californian, recently featured on NBC TV's The Voice, Season One. With an incredible vocal range voice in the style of Christina Aguilera, Lily performed two incredible sets with her full 7-person band. And retiring by popular demand for the second year was the all-girl Japanese rock band Nylon Pink, just having returned from a world music tour.
Sam Baldi first premiered his Calendar Best of Show winner at the 2013 Grand National Roadster Show at Pomona earlier this year, where he took top prize for the 3rd year in a row with different builds. "This bike took about a year and a half to build. Jimmy Todorovitch at Profile Cycles built the entire bike in his garage as he did with our other two bikes. He did all design and fab work and did everything by hand while some of the machine parts were done in my shop. The bike was supposed to be unveiled at Sturgis last year, but at the time I really had no direction on what to do about the paint job. Then we had a tragedy in the family. My daughter lost her first unborn child, so I conceived the bike's paint design with a dedication it to our family's "Lost Angel".

and Calendar Kittens Sara and Jessica.
Another notable build in contention for Best of Show at this year's Calendar Bike Building Championship was former Bobber Class winner Ron Baldonado / Rock Bottom Customs, Thousand Oaks, CA with a brand new ground up custom fabrication of a 1920's style board tracker racer that took 1st Place in this year's Classic American Class. "I build my bikes specifically to premier and win at the LA Calendar Motorcycle Show each year", he told us. "The frame is a 1930 Harley VL design, mated to a 1920 Girder style front end, rolling early on 1923 Harley JD wheels. The front headlight lantern houses a modern carbonate bulb, the grips are wooden as from bicycles in the 1900's, and the saddle comes from an 1800's blacksmith shop where he sat at his grinding stone."
Ron Baldonado's 1st Place Calendar Motorcycle Show winner is featured in a 2015 Calendar studio shoot with
large screen saver photos including Calendar Kittens Sara and Rebekah in the Calendar Bike Garage.
Other major Show attractions included the return of legendary West Coast builder Ron Simms / RonSimms.com with his big rig truck display back on the road for the first time in years to unloaded a baker's dozen of beautiful new customs and rare museum quality V-Twins from his personal collection. Keith Ball of Bikernet.com fame showing off his latest V-twin custom project bike and a new line of Bikernet Apparel. Tom Hicksof Southern California Motorcycles, the biggest supporter over the years of many local bike events, together with his sales staff and pretty models to showcase their great line of Triumph, Ducati, Victory and Royal Enfield motorcycles.
Also in attendance were former Bike Show winners Jim Giuffra of AFTcustoms with his beautiful AFT bike building spokes models Shelby and Lalani to present the AFT Customs Visionary Award Trophy for the most innovative and exciting bike at the event. That award would go to Chris Redpath / MotoGPwerks.com who premiered a custom built Suzuki TL1000 V-Twin naked streetfighter that would take the Sportbike Class win. Richard Pollock / Mule Motorcycles with latest Triumph Streetmaster build. And Steve Storz / Storz Performance premiering his beautiful new Storz SP1200RR Cafe Racer that is all the bike and more that Harley's now discontinued XR1200 streetbike should have been.

World Superbike -The First 25 Years
with a Tribute to its Producers Maurizio and Paolo Flammini
and how new management DORNA unceremoniously kicked the Flammini Brothers out the Back Door
of the best motorcycle roadracing championship ever
We all received the shocking Press Release back on September 2nd 2012 stating that the private equity firm of Bridgepoint, who already owned the MotoGP World Championship under DORNA, had just purchased the sports marketing firm InFront Sports & Media AG, who had themselves become the owners of the World Superbike Championship a few years earlier. The WSBK was then celebrating its 25th year of under the direction of brothers Maurizio and Paolo Flammini, who stepped in to save the fledgling production bike Championship started by ex-racer American Steve McLaughlin in 1987.
In 1990 Maurizio came in in to take over full control of World Superbike from McLaughlin's partners and struggling owners, the FG Group, and steered it forward towards world success. Brother Paolo came aboard as the Sales Manager of the Group in 1994, and then in 1999 became President of World Superbike as brother Maurizio stepped back to pursue other business ventures in sports marketing. Under their control the SBK World Championship in the next 20 years would become the most exciting motorcycle roadracing series in the world with the closest racing, most factory and private team involvement. At many European tracks it even rivaled and exceeded the attendance of the more well established FIM prototype roadracing series, MotoGP.
