High-Performance & Business with The World’s Fastest Female Motorcycle Racer
Scottsdale, AZ – Valerie Thompson, the world’s fastest female motorcycle racer, eight-time land speed record holder and Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame member, hosted a celebration of speed on Thursday, June 27, 2019 at her beautiful home in Paradise Valley.
Thompson is working to break another world record during SCTA Speed Week at Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats August 10 -16. Breaking speed and gender barriers, Thompson could be the first woman over 400 mph and first driver over 500 mph in a piston-powered engine vehicle, weather permitting.
Guest at the event were invited to join Thompson in Utah for chance to be part of history while they mixed, mingled and enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and cocktails provided by Maple and Ash, and water provided by Purely Sedona.
In addition, guests received a special viewing of Thompson’s racing videos and movie trailer for her upcoming film, “Rockets and Titans.”
“I’m thrilled I was able to share a sneak-peek of my upcoming film Rockets and Titans,” said Valerie Thompson. “I am so excited for people to see my story and battle to become the first motorcycle racer to shatter the 400mph barrier!”
Local award winning rock band, CTS performed their hit song “Quarter Mile” which was inspired by the Queen of Speed herself. Additionally, CTS customized a special guitar dedicated to Thompson, which guests were able to view at the event.
Tucson based non-profit, Beads of Courage, also attended the event. Beads of Courage provides innovative arts-in-medicine programs that improve the quality of life for children and teens coping with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, their families, and the clinicians who care for them.
“I am honored to carry beads as a Beads of Courage Celebrity Ambassador. It takes courage to go 300+ miles an hour on a motorcycle, but I am even more impressed by the courage shown by Beads of Courage members and families, added Thompson.”
