We will be racing. The engineers were out and we have TWO courses to run on this year. Details about the course locations and updated maps will be provided as the course is built and additional dry locations are evaluated. Look to this site and sign up for our Facebook page to get the latest information straight to you.
Everyone participating has probably read the rules governing their class dozens of times. This is a reminder that new rules for bike identification are in effect. Basically it boils down to making sure the volunteers and the tower crew can actually read your bike number as you head down course to break a record. Please take a look at the rules and make sure that you have numbers and bike class posted accordingly. We’re all hoping this will help make the whole event run better and we can get more bikes down the course and spend less time comparing notes on who might be on course!
2. K. NUMBER/CLASS IDENTIFICATION*
Motorcycle number and class identification on both sides of the
motorcycle are required for each participant. Numbers shall be
reserved with organizer. The number class shall be displayed
within a reasonably flat, smooth, vertical surface with a minimum dimension
of 7.5 in high and 10.5 in wide, with a maximum of 8.5in by 11in.
Motorcycle numbers must be a minimum of 3 in high and 1 in
wide. Class designation shall be a min of 1in high. Numbers/letters
shall not be shaded or outlined. The surface may be on the
motorcycle, or number plates may be used. Where used, number
plates shall have 1in radius corners, be securely mounted, meet the
dimensions and shall not extend beyond the rear edge of the rear tire.
Numbers shall be in full view and not blocked by the rider
when in the riding position. A change in rider/class requires a
change of numbers/class identification on the motorcycle.
The news is in and SCTA Southern California Timing Association Speed Week has been cancelled. All of us at BMST share our support for the teams and volunteers that had to make a tough decision. Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials is still “ON” and we are looking forward to some great racing starting the 23rd of August!
As with any volunteer operation we’re trying to find the best way to get the job done. We’re embracing some new technologies this year and using the website to help manage registration and cut down on trips to the post office. All participants will be receiving email with instructions for creating a gate pass for themselves and their crew as well as info on special discounts on weekly passes for direct friends and family.
Thank you for your patience as we work through streamlining the process so you can get on the salt!

Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials, The AMA Land Speed Grand Championship, is the premier motorcycle land speed racing event. Although this is the first year for this event, it is building from a tradition of excellence set by Denis Manning and the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials.
After nearly 40 years of operating a performance motorcycle exhaust company and 10 years of operating the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials, Denis Manning has decided to move on to new pursuits. Some would call this retirement but Denis will likely be calling it more time for working on bikes. We salute Denis for giving us all a chance to pursue our dreams of world and national records and are happy to announce a new event and an owner familiar to many participants.
Delvene Manning, Owner, Deliciate Promotions LLC, and Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials, is carrying on the tradition of running the premier motorcycle land speed racing event. She has been the behind the scenes manager of BUB events since their inception over 10 years ago. As an event manager, and a fellow salt fever addict, Delvene is looking forward to delivering another action packed week of record breaking motorcycle performance August 23-28 2014 at the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials.
