Wekrstatt_TTXGP.jpgThe girls from Werkstatt Racing and Repair want to enter a Mavizen TTX02 in the first ever American TTXGP series, coming to Infineon May 15-16. They need about $20,000 to make it happen. You can help them. Donate.

Update: Our buddy Chuck from Wired visited Werkstatt and wrote a short feature. Also, if you donate $500, you’ll get the chance to take the TTX02 for a spin! Check out Wired for details.

Update 2: the deadline for donations has been extended through Sunday.

Update 3: They made it! The bike’s on the way to San Francisco as we speak.

    Hey Wes – it’s only $100 for a Hellforleather sticker on the bike… how awesome would that be?

        You, sir, are a giant among men. I plan to donate as well, just waiting for the big surge that’s coming as a result of the Wired article.

        Maybe your friends at Newsweek want to run a feature on them?

    I really need to get a credit card, so that I could contribute to something like this. Love seeing chicks on bikes.

    Somebody would have BLAST joining the team. Imagine sitting in the pits during the bleeding edge of the future of motorcycle racing!

    The girls at Werkstatt rock! Jennifer really helped me out a few times with repairs when I was over my head. I would love to see them have the chance to compete. I will be donating for sure.

    Rad. I bought my first bike from Jen about a hundred years ago.

    Great news! I’m sure my donation put them over the top. Okay, maybe not, but I’m going to the party on May 14 to claim my t-shirt. It sounds like they still need about $16,000 more, so the fundraising will continue.
