This 2013 program with PerformanceWerx and Pandora’s European Motorsports to compete at the Bonneville Salt Flats on a specially prepared BMW S1000RR motorcycle. This program represents a new direction for team rider Jack Broomall’s 2Wheels4Kids motorcycle based charity efforts. aspires to duplicate that fund raising success and to raise further awareness for the foundation by successfully establishing several new motorcycle speed records on the legendary salt flats in Utah.
The multiple record setting PerformanceWerx team will compete with a very special BMW S1000RR. The class leading 1000cc Sportbike is being uniquely modified to compete in the unfaired, “naked” or so-called”streetfighter” configuration that is so popular among custom bike enthusiasts. Firmly in the team’s crosshairs are “naked” benchmarks in the record books of both major Bonneville sanctioning bodies, the Southern California Timing Association (SCTA) and the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA.) “The unfaired bikes are pretty close to my heart,” said Broomall, “I set my first Bonneville record on a naked bike in 2008, and also earned membership in the exclusive Bonneville 200MPH Club on a naked bike. Besides, we think the look is mega cool. We’ve taken to calling ours the Hooligan BMW!” In due course entries will be filed for the 65th Annual Bonneville SpeedWeek, August 10-16, 2013 as well as the 10th Annual Bub Speed Trials on August 25-29.
