Any News from BMST?
« on: August 29, 2016, 08:45:42 PM »
They have been racing at BMST for 2 days now. Anyone have any news? Speeds? Track conditions? The web site has nothing and the Facebook page just has a few photos, but no news. Is anyone there now who can comment? I hope things are going well!

Lots of bikes have been running. Val T has managed a couple of good sighting runs. Eva has put in a couple of runs on the electric liner. Tom Mellor looks to be doing well. All going well, and strong so far.

Valerie Thompson reporting that she went 286.567 mph one-way this morning.

That probably makes her the fastest female on a motorcycle (for what it's worth).

Just returned from BMST
Wow, 2014 was my first year, It was wet and sticky , When you walked your shoes were platform style in 10 steps.
2016 Hard packed, A little bumpy, Hot out , Hard , For Me to get traction, My pit man said it looked like a small cloud around my rear wheel at high speed.
Im pretty sure Mark Bjorkland did 205 on the Dual Motor Ducati he lays on .
When Hiro starts his bike in the pits, You can feel it, Like when someone on your block has a hopped up drag racer and fires it up in the garage, You can feel the power...
The big long electric bike Kaz , I think thats his name is running was in tech in front of us, It had to be 2 1/2 hours in tech just for him.. 
Speaking of Tech, The People that do tech and the Volunteers everywhere at the course, Pre Stage, Starting line, Check in , Wow, What a bunch of nice people, They blow me away !
More later

I do not think the Triumph liner was running at the BMST event.  What about Val T in the old Bub7 ?

Saw something on Google that Guy broke the old Triumph record by about 40mph.
Don't know if there is such a thing but that's what they wrote.
Valerie went 294 and change. :cheers: :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

Even faster yesterday - 304.514 mph for a kilometre and 304.263 mph for the mile.

Still a way to go before she sets an official record.
