Santa Monica, California (July 8th 2014)

Team H35 welcomes new title sponsor, Moto Club di Santa Monica for the much anticipated AMA Pro Road Racing round 4 at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

This race weekend is extra special because the AMA shares the facility with the eni FIM Superbike World Championship which means this event is firmly planted upon the world stage. The international audience has grown accustomed to incredible racing moments generated by this iconic track. Situated 5 miles from the coast of California, the 2.2 mile circuit is full of fun memories for the Moto Club di Santa Monica / Team H35 guys. Perhaps, the most notable moment came in 2008 during a Red Bull Rookies Cup race when Benny not only earned the win but also a “SPEED performance award” thanks to the photo-finish margin of victory at 0.0008 seconds!!!

In addition to all the great vibes produced by this track, the team is carrying tremendous momentum from Round 3 due to earning their best result of the year thanks to a hard fought 4th place at Barber Motorsports Park.

"It's really exciting for me and my team to have a title sponsor for this weekend at Laguna Seca!

It's a first for our team, TeamH35, and to have Moto Club di Santa Monica onboard for this race makes thing better for us.

Moto Club di Santa Monica is local to me, they are a great group of guys who work real hard, to have them be involved for the only California AMA event we have will be very special! Especially because it's also a WSBK weekend and many fans from all over the world will be watching.

Victor Ruvalcaba at Moto Club di Santa Monica has been helping our team all season, but like I said, having Victor and his shop be our title sponsor for the weekend is real exciting and I'm really motivated to bring an exciting race to all our partners; Moto Club di Santa Monica, Humberto Baca, Alpinestars, Arai Helmets, Motul, Dunlop, GPR Stabilizer, Galfer, SpeedCell, Renthal, ”Z”, Evol Technology, InHouse Suspension, YoyoDyne, RK Chains, Oakley, Zero Gravity, Gravesport, C-5, E-Z UP”

"When we were introduced to Benny through our friends at Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, we hit it off instantly.

Benny's race efforts have been very grassroots and family oriented, which is exactly how I've built my business over the last 8 years, so it's an absolute blessing and pleasure to be able to partner with Benny and Team H35.

I've been able to build my shop into a premier European motorcycle service and accessories destination in Los Angeles by way of hard work, passion and local support, comparable to Benny's racing career.

Benny Solis Jr. is a future champion, my staff and I are proud to be a part of his rising career.

Benny has shown podium-speeds all season long on a privateer R6...what would Benny do on a Factory ride!? #wwbd :) “

Humberto Baca - Team Owner

We are pleased to announce the addition of "Moto Club of Santa Monica" to Team H35. They have shown interest and given support to our privateer effort. We are excited to have them on board.
