    http://hotlaptv.com/

    Monday, September 26th, 2011 (Toronto) – Every amateur sport bike rider longs to see how far he can push his motorcycle and his own skills. A new television show, HOT LAP, gives amateur riders a chance to race at ten of the fastest tracks in North America. Featuring amateur riders the series is the first motorcycle racing game show where challengers race for the fastest lap of the day to win a ticket to attend the season grand finale episode. This unscripted reality TV production launches at the North American International Motorcycle SUPERSHOW in January 2012.

    “We are very excited to be working with the SUPERSHOW on the launch of HOT LAP,” says HOT LAP producer and host Andrew Shaw. “There is no better venue to premiere our exciting new TV production than at North America’s largest motorcycle show! Visitors can also join us at the HOT LAP booth throughout the three-day event and apply in-person to be selected as a challenger during season one.”

    In each episode of HOT LAP, the challenger with the fastest lap will win a ticket to the main event at Laguna Seca, California, where ten finalists will compete for the title of season champion and a chance to win a bike and to join the show as a cast member. HOT LAP is being released as a multi-part broadcast series for television, a sports travel documentary and streaming video series. “HOT LAP is like a cross between the hit BBC series ‘TOP GEAR’ and a motorcycle racing game show version of ‘AMERICAN IDOL’ – it's sure to be a hit!” says Andrew.

    In addition to the live filming at the show, a casting call will take place at the North American International Motorcycle SUPERSHOW, the continent’s largest motorcycle show.
