Valerie Thompson survives a 343 MPH Crash in Australia Bonneville Stories

Valerie walks away from a high speed crash on Lake Gairdner Australia in March 2018. The unique design and engineering of the 7 Streamliner proved it worth by keeping Valerie safe. The quest continues.

Valerie Thompsons is an eight-time land speed record holder and the first female rider to exceed 300 mph on two-wheels, earning the title of “World’s Fastest Female Motorcycle Racer.” Thompson’s attempt to break the world’s overall fastest motorcycle record of 376.36 mph at the 2018 World Speed Trails and Dry Lake Racers Australia (DLRA) Speed Week event on Lake Gairdner in Southern Australia resulted with a new streamliner record of 328.467 mph (528.616 km/h), despite battling high winds and on-board computer problems. Thompson’s record run earned her membership in the DRLA 200 and 300 MPH Clubs, as well as the “Fast Lady on the Lake” award. Thompson’s many racing accomplishments have earned her the moniker of “America’s Queen of Speed” by the worldwide motorsports media.

Hiro Koiso Land Speed Record:Bonneville Stories

Hiro Koiso sets a new AMA and FIM records at the 2013 BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials on the Bonneville Salt Flats.

Hiro very possibly the story that most exemplifies what Bonneviile is all about. After he crashed his bike in 2010, Hiro loaned Roger Golhammer's team his entire engine that Hiro had worked on for a year and they watched Jimmy Paulgaard run it for a land speed record. That kind of unselfishness and camaraderie is what makes the BUB event so special. Scooter Grubb

Blue Flame Land Speed Story Pt. 1 – World’s 1st Rocket Dragster!

The first in a three-part series on The Blue Flame rocket car, driven by Gary Gabelich in 1970 to a new land speed record. In this episode we take a look at the X-1 rocket dragster that preceded The Blue Flame. Driven by Chuck Suba, it debuted in 1967 and was the world’s first liquid-fuel rocket car. The X-1 proved the Reaction Dynamics team’s land speed ideas and got them the sponsorship they needed to build a full-sized rocket car: The Blue Flame.

New Land Speed Record Set By Donald Campbell - 403mph (1964) | Sporting History

Campbell was a British speed record breaker who is the only person to have set both world water and land speed records in the same year (1964). On 17 July 1964, Campbell set a new world land speed record of 403.10mph for a four-wheeled car (Class A) at Lake Eyre, Australia. He was however disappointed with the record as his Norris Brothers designed Bluebird-Proteus CN7 had been constructed to reach speeds of 500mph. Campbell went on that year to set another water speed record at 276.33mph. Campbell was killed whilst attempting to set his 8th water speed record in 1967.

Blue Flame Land Speed Rocket Car Story Pt. 3 – 1,000+ km/hr!

The conclusion of a three-part series on The Blue Flame rocket car, driven by Gary Gabelich in 1970 to a new land speed record. In this episode, we’re off to the Bonneville Salt Flats with The Blue Flame team to break Craig Breedlove’s 600 mph record. The guys estimate that the Flame’s rocket has the potential for speeds of up to 900 mph, so they have ratcheted down its thrust. They don’t want Gary Gabelich going too fast. But problems lay ahead.
