Valerie Thompson Sets Sights On 200 MPH Club Membership At El Mirage Competition

The SCTA sanctions the world’s fastest speed trials and will be celebrating their 62nd anniversary of hosting land speed racing activities at the famed dry lake. El Mirage is located 30 miles east of Antelope Valley California and has been one of the world’s most celebrated racing destinations for more than half a century.

“This will be my second time racing my BMW at El Mirage. I’m still getting used to the racing surface, which is unlike any I’ve ever raced on before,” said Thompson. “Last year, I was the fastest female on a normally aspirated motorcycle with a top speed of 199.90 mph, so I am hoping we can crack the 200 mph mark this time. Becoming a member of SCTA’s 200 MPH Club has been one of my major goals,” added Thompson.
