Infragistics Racing 2015

Kevin Richardson, Ph.D. / Tuesday, May 05, 2015

As I’ve written in the past, there are a lot of parallels to be drawn between motorcycle racing and User Experience Design. And now, as Spring finally arrives here in NJ, it’s that time when all the physical and mechanical preparation, like user experience research prior to starting the design phase of a consulting project, is finished and it’s time to take the motorcycle back to the track.

The first outing for Infragistics Racing in 2015 was a practice day at Summit Point Raceway in West Virginia. Don’t let the southern-sounding state fool you – getting to full-throttle at over 120mph on the short straight when the air temperature is 46 F (8 C) is chilly!

Weather notwithstanding, it was a good first outing for the team as it prepares for the upcoming 9 race season. If you find yourself in the area, come by and say hi – I’m sure you’ll recognize the Infragistics race bike!
