#RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati will run FDNY tribute livery for 9/11 race

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

#RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati approaches the season finale MotoAmerica races at New Jersey Motorsports Park this coming weekend from a perspective of respect, honor, and remembrance.

This Sunday marks the fifteenth anniversary of the September 11th tragedies. To pay tribute to the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice on that day, team rider Corey Alexander and the #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati team are excited to showcase the Ducati Panigale R “Engine No. 23” with special edition F.D.N.Y. livery. This particular livery replicates in exact detail a typical F.D.N.Y. Fire apparatus with prominent yellow and white stripes.

The custom painted #23 Panigale R, as well as Corey’s custom race leathers, will be on display at New Jersey Motorsports Park, Friday, September 9 through Sunday, September 11, 2016. Corey will be competing with the custom livery in the MotoAmerica SuperStock 1000 class. Additionally, #RideHVMC Freeman Racing Ducati will have event shirts available for sale, with all profits being donated to the 9/11 Memorial Foundation.

Every year our home race at New Jersey Motorsport Park falls near September 11th, and so this year when we realized the dates aligned and race day (Sunday) fell on the 11th, we felt it was absolutely necessary to do something to really honor the brave men and women of the F.D.N.Y.. Being a New Yorker my entire life, I can remember the exact day of the tragedy. At the time only being 7 years old, I didn’t understand the magnitude of the events unfolding. Though I did feel the magnitude of the events then, I continue to feel the impact it had on our city, our state, and our country. With the help of our team painter Lance, graphics company Signs Ink, and leather sponsor Spidi Sport I’m excited to bring our vision come to life. It’s a tremendous honor to showcase this special livery, and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do!” Says Corey.
