Valerie Thompson Hits 200MPH at the Ohio Mile

Valerie Thompson 200 mph club

It only took 28 seconds for six-time land speed record holder Valerie Thompson to shatter the East Coast Timing Association’s one-mile record in the MPS/Modified Class at the recent Ohio Mile competition. Thompson piloted her BMW S 1000 RR to 208.71 mph, easily breaking the former record of 205 mph. Thompson’s new record also qualified her for membership in the exclusive ECTA 200 MPH Club while claiming bragging rights as the fastest RR in the MPS/F-1000 Class.

Thompson is only the the third female rider in the already exclusive club of fewer than 100 peope to break that 200 MPH mark.  She’s been working to break that barrier for quite some time, displaying determination and dedication to her craft. She set a speed of 212 MPH at the Texas Mile in 2013, and is a member of the BUB Speed Trials 201 MPH Club, the Mojave Magnum 200 MPH club, and now, of course the ECTA.

Next,  Thompson and her BMW team turn their sights on Bonneville during the runs at the salt flats this summer during the July Speed Trials.
