Seat Time: Celebrating the life of Kurt Caselli

I'm cross posting this (it is in Kurt's thread too) but, thought it was important enough that it deserved it.
---------------------------------------------

From Here: http://seattime.co/2013/11/celebrati...-kurt-caselli/

Having started this press release over many times, we knew it was best to leave the emotion out of it and help in our way to celebrate the life of Kurt Caselli.
November 18th, 2013 : In an effort to help celebrate the life of Kurt Caselli, Seat Time would like to have a memorial show for Caselli. We are looking for any and all who have a story they would like to share with the world about KC66 to please reach out to us. We will skype in those whom wish to give their story in person. If being on the show live isn’t your thing, we will be more than willing to read your story during the show.
In true Seat Time fashion, we will be going live tomorrow night, Tuesday, November 19th, at 8pm cst. Please email us at the link below if you would like to talk on the show or email us a story. Thank you all for your time and we hope to celebrate the life of a great man and one of the best ambassadors our sport has ever known.

Our bike was 210x. We are the race for the wounded guys. I was doing chase & took our warrior hero Jesse to checkpoint 2 just north of Puertocitos to run his section. I knew that our bike wouldn't get there until late morning but we arrived at 2:30 a.m. It's funny, our beach house was only 15 miles up the road but I wanted to get a good parking spot and I was not going to miss the first bikes through. 1x(Honda) came through at 4:28 a.m. 2x(KTM) 12 minutes later. Then 4x. Then amazingly, 329x. These guys are my heros. Like Caselli, Udall & all the others they look like ordinary people but they are not. God speed Kurt.

Hey man, I'm sure we met. I was there with the TTBC team bike 145x. We were at RM150 when the front runners came through at 2:10am. They were hauling ass.

What a great experience, I can't wait to do it again.

RIP Kurt......

337X Checking in

I rode on the 337X team for the 2013 Baja 1000 last week.

Rafa is a CNN Latin America/Central America correspondent, he was also our chase truck driver for the race and did a story about what he saw.

They got Kelly and Scotty on there for some interviews. My footage is on the edit room floor.....

Check it out below.

Johnny Campbell Racing, Inc (JCR) is officially announcing its withdrawal from SCORE International Baja racing for 2014

For Immediate Release, January 12, 2014

San Clemente, CA:

Johnny Campbell Racing, Inc (JCR) the most dominate motorcycle
Off-Road racing team to compete in Baja, Mexico, is officially
announcing its withdrawal from SCORE International Baja racing for
2014.

Honda has enjoyed participating in Baja competition for over 51 years. Within Honda’s rich Baja racing history racers like Dave Ekins, Al Baker, Bruce Ogilvie, Chuck Miller, Johnny Campbell, Steve Hengeveld, Robby Bell, Kendall Norman, Quinn Cody, Colton Udall, Timmy Weigand and others have amassed over 23 victories in the most grueling Off-Road race in the world. Johnny’s personal record of 11-Overall wins plus 6 as a team owner and manager total an astounding 17-consecutive Baja 1000 victories for Honda, a record that is likely to never be equaled. The JCR/Honda team will be taking on a new set of exciting challenges that will be announced in the near future.

“With so much success over the past two decades of Baja motorcycle
racing, the time has come for us to search out new opportunities and a new set of goals. JCR/Honda has had an amazing experience working with SCORE International and an even better experience living the Baja dream. The extraordinary fans, the great sponsors and supporters all have made this lifestyle a gift I truly cherish.

I have been honored to carry on the legacy of my great mentor - the late Bruce Ogilvie - who's passion for Baja and this program has been carried on through the spirit of this team. The biggest thing that has made JCR and Honda so successful in Baja racing is the JCR/Honda race support crews, they are the backbone of this program. Without the selfless sacrifices of the pit captains and crews we would be nowhere. If just one crew person is not in the right place at the right time, the wins and championships would not have been obtainable. I sincerely thank each and everyone who has stood hand in hand with myself and the JCR/Honda team through the decades of dominance. Our new direction will be announced shortly. I have no doubt this will be an amazing year."

With absolute respect to all,

Johnny Campbell
