We’ve got your Pro Racing covered too, with appearances by British road racer Conor Cummins, AMA Triumph Pro SuperSport racer Elena Myers, and our own AHRMA racer Scott Turner from Team Scott Racing.  Stop by and absorb knowledge!

Head to the Ace Corner Facebook event page for the latest updates.

Conor Cummins - At just 27 years of age, Conor is one of the hottest prospects currently plying his trade on the roads. He was fastest newcomer at the TT and the NW200 in 2006, secured the first of four TT podiums in 2009 and is the third fastest rider in the history of the event, as well as holding the record for the fastest lap from a standing start at 131.5mph.

Elena Myers - In just two short years, Elena Myers has made quite a name for herself in the AMA Pro Racing community. In her first season as a pro rider, she made history by becoming the first female to win an AMA Pro Road Racing sprint race with a SuperSport West victory at Infineon Raceway in 2010. Myers achieved her second career win at Daytona International Speedway in March 2012, becoming the first woman ever to win a professional motorsports race at the famous racetrack.

Scott Turner – Head of the Dime City sponsored AHRMA Team, Scott has been racing and building Honda 350′s that go from the track to the street, and from the junkyard to the show.  He’s one of the nicest and most knowledgeable people that we know!

Industry Related News – Lowside Magazine & All Things Two Wheels

Wednesday, August 17, 2011 10:03:06 AM America/New_York

For those of you who aren’t aware of Lowside Magazine, you should most definitely stop what you’re doing right now and check it out! http://www.lowsidesyn.com/ It’s a grass-roots revival magazine that knows no bounds and supports and thrives on anything that’s related two (and four) wheels. That’s right, cool old-school choppers, bobbers and especially Cafe Racers with occasional classic hot rods thrown in for good measure.

The crew from Lowside including, to name a few, Big n Rich, Tiny “Skinny Jeans” Tim, Dan “The Man”, Roughneck Deb and Q-Ball will be featured in Episode 13 of Cafe Racer TV where they brought down and helped us tear apart, the CB400F The DCC Crew built for Season 2 of the series. In addition to doing some serious tear-down they also helped us pull-off one of the best grand opening events ever. The perfect mixture of old-school choppers and cafe bikes showed despite the rain and created which is quite possibly one of the most eclectic gathers the South has ever seen. The result, what we like to call our generations cult of “vintage speed machines.”

Right about now you’re saying “What’s the news in this post guys?” Well, we’ll tell you…

The news is, that all bets are off. Whether you ride a cafe bike, a vintage harley, a custom XS650 or anything else that goes fast and makes noise that you built by your hands then you’re in the right place. There’s no more tough-guy bullshit lathered in leather in chrome. This is our time for motorcycling and it’s a great time. A time to appreciate the aesthetic beauty that is “custom garage built motorcycles” put together via a wide-spread creative collective that knows no bounds.

Expect to see a lot more from the likes of Dime City Cycles, Lowside, Loaded Gun and a handful of others who recognize this and want to support you and your nasty little wrench turning habits. It’s about you, your machine and your right to exercise individuality and spit in the face of homogeny.

And to wet your appetite just a bit, issue #6 of Lowside is being released right around the corner. In it, you’ll get a tasty look inside the dark corners of Dime City where we detail the build of “The Four Hundred” our best Vintage Speed Machine yet. Keep an eye out, we promise we’ll make you proud.
