Bikernet Exclusive: Valerie Thompson To Ride Streamliner For Denis Manning

By May 10, 2016General Posts


Bikernet found out this morning that Bonneville 200 MPH Club member Valerie Thompson is to ride a land speed racing streamliner for owner Denis Manning this season. Denis Manning who’s aiming at a 400 mph record said, “She will need to learn how to ride our rocket’.

There’s no doubt that Manning’s purpose-built streamliner two-wheeler is no ordinary motorcycle, but Valerie is no stranger herself to wild machinery. Valerie is a multiple land speed record holder and has also competed in NHRA Pro Stock motorcycle racing.

More details are to come soon and we will be sure to keep you up to date. In the meantime you can check out Valerie’s accomplishments with the Bikernet 5-Ball Racing Panhead a few years back.
