2015 AMA Land Speed Grand Championship at Bonneville Salt Flats to be held Aug. 29-Sept. 3
PICKERINGTON, Ohio — For many motorcyclists, outright speed is king. On Aug. 29–Sept. 3 at the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats in Wendover, Utah, the fastest motorcyclists will compete at the 2015 AMA Land Speed Grand Championship to set national and world records.
“Few sports are as connected to one location as land-speed racing is to Bonneville,” said AMA Track Racing Manager Ken Saillant. “The name itself evokes an otherworldly sense of achievement — and that is what our racers strive for every year. Not only are they racing against others in their class for AMA National No. 1 plates, they are competing against the best of all time for a name in the record books.”
The Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials, the AMA Land Speed Grand Championship, is the premier motorcycle land-speed racing event in the world. This AMA-sanctioned event, which also includes Fédération Internationale de Motocylisme recognition, offers competitors the opportunity to clinch AMA national and FIM world records aboard machines from 50cc mini-bikes to 3,000cc motorcycles.
“We’re honored to host such a prestigious event,” said event manager Delvene Manning. “Bonneville is always an exciting challenge, not just for the racers, but for the organizers. For us, it’s a welcomed opportunity to run an event in a truly unique environment, where so much is on the line.”
Competitors will have the opportunity to ride the following courses (length subject to change based on conditions), based on their machines:
Contenders in a variety of classes will attempt to secure the absolute world record. However, Bonneville is known for offering a range of classes for participants. In addition to state-of-the-art, custom-built streamliners, numerous entrants will compete in a number of less-sophisticated categories that allow racers to strive for glory on the famed Bonneville Salt Flats.
Entry information, a detailed schedule, rules, classes and existing records are available at www.BonnevilleSpeedTrials.com.

75th Anniversary Bike Week Logo Released
Daytona Beach, FL – The Bike Week Festival Task Force is pleased to announce the winning 2016 logo in the annual Bike Week logo contest. The 75th Anniversary is a very special year and as such the logo is an important part of the sales, marketing and promotion for the event. The winner of the 75th Anniversary design is from Mid Florida Sportswear one of the Bike Week Festival Task Force local licensee’s. The designer responsible for the winning logo there is Joe Erker whose creative design captures the historical perspective of the event while delivering sharp new elements reflecting the modern look of the future. The design includes a little Florida style too with palm tree’s built into the center of the design.
Budweiser®, presenting sponsor of the Bike Week Logo is excited about the 75th Anniversary. “It’s never easy to pick just one design from so many great entries, but this one really stood out for its uniqueness and reflection of the area,” Chris Bowler said. “We think it will work in a number of different formats from t-shirts to pins as well as be a strong reflection of the area within the marketing materials we utilize it on,” Bowler continued.
Bike Week Task Force Co-Chair Bob Coleman said “The 75th logo goes everywhere and will become one of those logos with a long standing shelf life because of the significance of the anniversary year. We anticipate strong sales related to the logo and have already started reaching out to new merchandisers for uses. We also have returning sponsors who want to get a jump on the logo with the significance of it being so strong”, Coleman said.
The 75th Anniversary of Bike Week takes place from March 4-13, 2016. Additional information on Bike Week in Daytona Beach can be found on the Official Daytona Bike Week Website at officialbikeweek.com featuring the largest online resource for attendees.
