Five-time land speed record holder and one of the world’s fastest BMW motorcycle racers, Valerie Thompson, will return to the Buckeye state for the East Coast Timing Association’s Ohio Mile land speed racing competition June 7-8 with hopes of setting new speed records with her BMW S 1000 RR.

The ECTA hosts four different speed trial events at the Airborne Park facility in Wilmington Ohio each year. The upcoming Ohio Mile competition offers car and motorcycle racers more than 4,400 classes in which to compete. Prior to moving to the Airborne Park location in 2012, the ECTA held the competition in Maxton North Carolina from 1995 through 2011 and was named the Maxton Mile.

“I really look forward to racing at the Ohio Mile. The ECTA knows how to put on a first class speed competition and it’s the home state of one of our sponsors, CTEK Battery Chargers. It’s a wonderful track surface and we have run well here in the past. We have set 3 speed records here over the last 2 years and one is still standing in the Production Class,” said Thompson. “This year we hope to surpass the 200 mph mark and become one of the newest members of the prestigious Ohio Mile 200 MPH Club,” added Thompson.

Airborne Park is located southeast of Wilmington, Ohio midway between Cincinnati and Columbus.
