50 provisional national land speed records set Bonneville

10 FIM world records also pending ratification

PICKERINGTON, Ohio — The American Motorcyclist Association congratulates the 41 riders who set 50 provisional AMA national land speed records and the nine riders who set 10 provisional Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme world records at the 2019 AMA Land Speed Grand Championship on Aug. 24-29.

All records set during the event must be certified by the AMA and the FIM before becoming official.

Also known as the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials, the six-day event drew hundreds of land speed racers to pilot their motorcycles on the famed Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah. It is the premier motorcycle land speed racing championship in the United States.

“This year’s AMA Land Speed Grand Championship was one of the best in recent years,” AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant said. “Track conditions were excellent, and we offer our congratulations to all of the riders who set records at the event. Promoter Delvene Reber and her team at Deliciate Promotions did an outstanding job operating the event.”

The AMA-sanctioned championship, which also includes recognition from the FIM, offers competitors the opportunity to collect AMA national and FIM world records aboard machines ranging from 50cc mini-bikes to 3,000cc streamliners.

AMA and FIM record-setting riders are recognized as AMA national champions and are awarded AMA National No. 1 plates. They will be honored as part of the AMA Legends & Champions Weekend in Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 6-7.
