Valerie Thompson to Attend BMW Rally & California Superbike SchoolValerie Thompson News

Five-time land speed record holder and one of the world’s fastest BMW racers, Valerie Thompson, will travel to Birmingham Alabama to participate in the 42nd annual BMW Riders Association Rally at Barber Motorsports Park.

Thompson will also attend the California Superbike School that runs in conjunction with the rally from May 29 – June 2.

The rally will feature over 45 BMW motorcycle related vendors, seminars and on-track events. Thompson’s record holding BMW S 1000 RR will be displayed at the Schuberth Helmet booth and she will be a featured speaker during the event.

“I can’t wait to get to Birmingham for these two excellent events. I’m looking forward to touring the Barber Vintage Motorsport Museum, home to the world’s best motorcycle collection with over 1200 vintage and modern motorcycles and racecars,” said Thompson. “BMW supplies S 1000 RR Superbikes for the California Superbike School, so I’ll feel right at home,” added Thompson.

Keith Code founded the California Superbike School to provide a unique combination of classroom and on-track step-by-step instruction for motorcyclists whose skills range from novice street riders to factory racers. The school offers four levels of courses throughout the US, Australia and Europe.

The first three levels present five precise technical riding skills and each level can be completed in one day. Code is credited with breaking the sport down into its essential components and bringing real understanding to riders in all categories. His books, video and schools were the first to make that knowledge available to everyone.

“No matter how long you’ve been riding motorcycles, the expert training provided by the California Superbike School will make you even better. The combination of trained professionals like Keith Code and BMW Superbikes offers an unmatched opportunity to improve your riding skills,” added Thompson.

Barber Motorsports Park is located at 6030 Barber Motorsports Parkway. For ticket prices and event schedule, visit or
