2020 BMST Cancelled due to COVID-19

APRIL 28, 2020, POULSBO, Wash:  The heartbreaking actualities of the COVID-19 pandemic leaves us no other choice but to cancel the 2020 Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials (BMST), an annual FIM World Records and AMA Grand Championship event.  We want to race, and we know you do, too, but the health and well-being of our Land Speed Racing family is BMST’s top priority. 

In partnership with the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM), we’ve already been developing and implementing dynamic improvements to ensure the future of our sport for generations to come.  With the extra time that this postponement affords, we plan to do more to make the 2021 BMST, August 28 through September 2, even more exciting and memorable.  Our goal in the year ahead is to expand and build the Land Speed Racing community through commitment, focus, and creativity. 

Amidst this crisis, we feel energized to develop and roll out new programs and resources in the coming weeks and months.  Highlighting passion, purpose, and performance, BMST is committed to providing continued support for the global motorcycle family that has participated since its launch in 2004.  It takes a large community of racers, teams, and sponsors to realize this event.  During this next year we will be putting added focus on these elements.

All income, from registration fees, merchandise sales, and sponsorship, is used directly to defray the costs associated with producing the premier Motorcycle Land Speed Racing event. From ownership on down, BMST is 100% volunteer run, by a crew of phenomenal fans who devote their own time and resources to make it a roaring success. We still have significant financial expenditures to make throughout 2020 and into 2021. BMST has to replace and upgrade large equipment, including trailers and radio communications. We cannot do this without your help to make 2021 a year for the history books. “We will be working hard for next year’s event, and we will stay connected along the way to ensure that we all get our prescribed dose of salt to carry us forward up to and through 2021,” said Delvene Reber. “We may not be able to race this year, but we still have our racing family.”
