Thompson set 3 new land speed records this year with her Martech Services Company sponsored BMW S 1000 RR. She also became a charter member of the “Mojave Magnum 200 MPH Club” after running a top speed of 209.5 mph at the event in June. Thompson holds three land speed records in East Coast Timing Associations (ECTA) events and two records at the Bonneville Salt Flats BUB Speed Trials.

Based on Thompson’s successful racing results, BMW Motorrad USA will partner with VTR for the 2013 racing season through the BMW Motorrad HP Race Parts program. “Over the past few days, Mark Ledesma at GO AZ Motorcycles of Scottsdale has been installing new BMW Motorrad HP Race Parts to my DoubleR. We can’t wait to dyno the bike with the new equipment. I’m confident we’ll see a dramatic performance improvement,” said Thompson.

“I’m looking forward to promoting the HP Race Parts program, my first choice when it comes to performance enhancing equipment for my race bike. It’s easy to promote quality brands you know are the best in the business,” said Thompson. “I’ll be very busy at Long Beach working with both BMW Motorrad USA and one of my other official sponsors, Shorai Batteries. Both provide products that work equally well on the track and street, which is an important consideration for dedicated riders like me,” added Thompson.

The show will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center at 300 E. Ocean Boulevard.
