Rebels, Rockers and Renegades Ride Again on an All New Season of CAFE RACER on Velocity

-- Motorcycle Maestro, Mike Seate, Hosts All-New Episodes Premiering April 19 at 8:00 PM --

SILVER SPRING, Md., March 26, 2012 -- There's no other feeling comparable to hitting 100 mph on a cafe racer. The signature rumble of the engine, the indelible smell of burning rubber, and the unmatched heritage of "cool" have made this two-wheeled subculture the home for Hollywood stars, barnyard builders, and thrill seekers worldwide. Velocity takes viewers inside this underground society with the return of the fan-favorite franchise that conquers the need for speed. Hosted by motorcycle aficionado, Mike Seate, CAFE RACER promises an exclusive look at the culture and craft behind these storied bikes. The new season of CAFE RACER premieres on Velocity Thursday, April 19 at 8:00 PM (ET/PT), followed by a special bonus premiere episode at 8:30PM (ET/PT).

Now in its third season, CAFE RACER hosts a trip into the rich cultural past, present, and future of the cafe scene. In perhaps the most influential motorcycle movement in history, cafe racers emerged in post-WWII Britain, from a group of disenchanted youth. Cafe racer culture still thrives around the globe as motorcycles are made over to fit the look and feel of the original bikes. These rides are often stripped of excess parts, and their engines tuned for maximum speed, in order to achieve the Holy Grail of cafe racing: hitting the 100-mph mark, or "Doing the Ton".

"CAFE RACER has become a key franchise for Velocity," said Bob Scanlon EVP of the network. "The show delivers on our promise to give viewers exclusive access to their favorite experts and take them on rides they've never had before."

"Where choppers are more about show than go, cafe racers are all about speed. The ability to build and ride a hand-made, high-performance motorcycle has kept cafe racers popular for over 60 years," said Mike Seate, host and coordinating producer.

In the seasons premiere episode, CAFE RACER visits the legendary NCR Ducati shop in Italy to acquire exclusive parts for a one-of-a-kind build. Future episodes will include a Bostrom Brothers' surprise build; lighting fast tests at Little Talledega; a controversial custom build that will exceed six figures; and, an exclusive look into the Cretins, America's first cafe racing society.
