TWINSBURG, Ohio — CTEK Power, Inc. has renewed its sponsorship of Valerie Thompson Racing for the 2014 season. Owner and driver Valerie Thompson is a six-time land speed record holder and one of America’s fastest females on two-wheels.
Riding the CTEK-sponsored BMW 1000 RR, Thompson shattered the East Coast Timing
Association (ECTA) one-mile record in the MPS/Modified Class during the recent Ohio Mile competition in Wilmington, Ohio. Thompson clocked in at 208.7 mph, easily breaking the former record of 205 mph. Thompson’s new record also qualified her for membership in the exclusive ECTA 200 MPH Club while claiming bragging rights as the fastest RR in the MPS/F-1000 Class.
“It is a great honor and achievement to be the newest member of the ECTA’s 200 MPH Club, especially since I am only the third female of less than 100 members,” said Thompson. “I’m proud to represent CTEK throughout the 2014 campaign and we thank them for once again being one of our valued sponsors.”
Thompson and her CTEK-sponsored BMW team now turn their sights on setting new land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats during the August 9-15 speed trials.
“We offer our congratulations to Valerie and her team for this incredible achievement at the Ohio Mile,” said Matt Ingram, regional sales manager for CTEK. “Valerie is a great ambassador for our chargers and accessories, and we are thrilled to renew our sponsorship. She brings passion and enthusiasm to her loyal fans who help support her sponsors.”
