Russ Brown Obituary - (1934 - 2021) - Los Angeles, CA - Los Angeles Times

Godspeed to Russ Brown, the legendary Rockstore Motorcycle Attorney. I worked with Russ in the 1990s-2010 as his advertsing design agency, creating his print ads, photo shoots, and assisting in some of his TV comercials, and created his original Eagle logo which appeared in his ads, event banners and on his BAM Member Cards. Russ Brown sponsored many major motorcycle events across America including at Sturgis and my own LA Calendar Motorcycle Show.

God Speed to legendary engine tuner Jerry Branch 1924 - 2018
Mikuni American's Carburetor Division worked with Jerry and Branch Flowmetrics as a Mikuni distributor and dealer, who used Mikuni Carburetors for his modified American V-twin street and race engines. In the mid 1990s when Jerry retired, Mikuni American purchased and ran Branch Flowmetrics for about 10 years, then sold the company back to Jerry's employees. During the time Mikuni owned Branch Flowmetrics, Gianatsis Design Associates handled their advertising. Jerry personally ported and modified the heads on my first '93 Ducati 916/926cc bike.

Good Bye to the Fast Dates Calendar 1991 - 2018!

Good Bye to the Fast Dates Calendar 1991 - 2018!

Good Bye to the Fast Dates Superbike Calendar after 27 Years...
World SBK ends its beneficial relationship with photographer / publisher Jim Gianatsis and the FastDates.com Calendars.

Dear World Superbike Friends,
Los Angeles, December 2018 - It makes me very sad to tell you the FAST DATES World Superbike Calendar after a incredible run, first published by Mikuni American and then by Gianatsis Design, featuring the world's top racing motorcycles togwther with beautiful ceonterfold models and offical World SBK podium umbrella girls, will end with the 2018 edition this December 2018.

Last year 2017 was the first time in 23 years (and 37 years attending and working the annual AMA Superbike Races at Laguna Seca), I was not allowed as a Offical Media or WSBK partner, to attend the Laguna Seca USA World Superbike round this July 6-8th 2017 weekend to photograph the Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar, to cover the race weekend for FastDates.com Pit Lane News, nor to provide, at what has been always at considerable cost to me, the beautiful FastDates.com Calendar Models to serve as the official SBK Podium and Grid Girls, or to serve as Umbrella Girls for some of the Factory Race Teams.

The SBK Dorna Media Department has denied my Media Credential Request for the first time ever, and they would not provide me any reply or explanation.

However, I had heard that new SBK Dorna Media Officer Benjamin Cobb has rationalized the FAST DATES Calendar is not a current Media Media News Source. Even though it is and does remains the only historical reference of all the factory race teams, riders and their sponsor competing in the SBK World Superbike Championship from year to year beginning back in 1991 with Doug Pollen’s Fast by Ferracci 1991 World Championship winning Ducati 888. And for WSB Race Fans and Collectors the Fast Dates Calendar is the only regularly published news source which has documented the top race teams and riders for 27 years since the Championship began.

While the very production schedule of a season Calendar, even the official SBK Yearbook for that matter, which is photographed at last year’s races, means it can not have the current season’s race bikes or sponsors when it is released on July 1st for the coming season.

And not withstanding that the FastDates.com Pit Lane News website has covered every round of the SBK and MotoGP World Championship since the year 2000, making it a regular published current news source as well. And also worthy of SBK media access on its own merit.

Mr. Cobb also seems feel my inclusion of Nicky Hayden's Ten Kate Honda CBR1000 bike in the new 2018 Calendarwas not appropriate, dispite the fact the 2018 Calendar had already gone to print when Nicky had the unfortunate accident that ended his life. Having Nicky and his bike in the new 2018 Calendar is a tribute to Nicky and what he gave back to our sport. To leave Nicky out of the 2018 Calendar would be dis service to our sport and everyone who knew Nicky, and shameful for the WSBK Media Department to think as much. The 2017 Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca Race Program pays tribute to its own American Nicky Hayden, so why shouldn’t the now released 2018 Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar do the same?

Mr. Cobb’s 3rd justification, I heard, in denying me SBK media access is that I cc: / copy too many people in my Email correspondence leading up to the race to secure Credentials for the Models and Myself. In past year’s my SBK Credentials were provided through the SBK Marketing Department as part of a trade sponsorship where under Flammini management Fast Dates was the official Calendar of the SBK World Superbike Championship. I was required to co-ordinate in advance the shooting of the Calendar with the Race Track Manager and Media Department, the SBK Race Teams and their Press Officers, and the SBK Marketing and Credential Departments who approve of, and provide the Credentials for my Models and who would be working for the Marketing Department on the race days. Mr Cobb feels this is all his domainnow, and I should not have contact anyone else but him. But if i don’t, the Calendar could not be photographed and the Models would not have access to the track or be working the Podium and Grid for SBK.

Fast dates 2004 Calednar

Mr. Cobb has seemingly made this all a Catch 22, where I am damned if i do, and damned if i don’t, in his rational to remove me and my passion to help, support, provide regular and historical medias coverage and promote the SBK World Superbike Championship after having done so 27 years, essentially the entire history of the SBK Championship.

The failure to be allowed by WSBK to shoot the Fast Dates Calendar at an SBK round was the final nail in the coffin to my deciding to no longer publish the Fast Dates Calednar. To be honest, the Calendar has not been profitable the past few years amid the declining demographics of motorcycle racing fans, the decline in attendance at AMA / World Superbike races, the lack of intererest by the new i-Genegration in book print and wall calendars, and the move to the inteenet, cell phones and social media. But I love Superbikes, working with the race teams and models at the race track, and i was willing to eat the financial lossto try and support the sport I love. But now, without WSBK's support, I just don't see the need or desire to continue the Fast Dates Calendar without the world's top racebikes.

In looking back over 27 years of the Fast Dates Calednars, there's been so many incredible bikes and models feaured to make it a truly iconic tribute to our beloved sport of motorccyle racing. The first 1991 FatsDates Calendar featured fyoung new Playboy Playmate and actress Pamela Anderson with Miguel duHammel's Yoshimura "Big Papa" 1100cc Formula Extreame Superbike. To American World Superbike Champion Colin Edwrds factory Honda RC51 World Superbike with Miss Great Britian Nicky Llane. To beautiful Czech WSBK podium Girl Petra Ruzickova with Eurene Lavertys, Cresent Suzuki on the cover of the 2016 calendar. Along the way I got to shot and feature teh MotoFP World Championship winning bikes of Doug Polen, Wayne Rainey, Kevin Schwantz, Carly Fogarty, Troy Corser, Troy Bayliss, Jonthan Rea, Valentino Rossi, Casey Stoner and others with beautiful movie actresses and TV stars like Jamie Pressly and Leaan Tweeden, Supermodels, Playboy Cover Girls and Centerfolds than even I can count.

In closing I would like to thank you all for your support with working with me over the many years, allowing me to photograph your team bikes and support your sponsors, and in providing complimentary Umbrella Girls for some of your team on the grid. I love World Superbike and the time you have allowed me to share the sport with you....

I know some of you out there have complete colletions of the Fast Dates Calendars going back to 1991. Many of the Past Edition Calendars are still available to order from our website at - http://www.FastDates.com/COLLECTORS.HTM

Thank you for your friendship, it was great getting to know and work with you at the races!

P.S. If you have the time, I hope you might talk or write to SBK World Superbike / Dorna Director Daniel Carrera, and ask if he might intervene in the SBK Media and Marketing Departments to help me return to World Superbike in the coming years to document your race bikes in the Fast Dates World Superbike Calendar.
