AMERICAN FAST chick Leslie Porterfield has set a new world record at Bonneville Salt Flats, clocking 201mph in the 1000cc Production Class.

Porterfield bettered the current record speed of 194mph and is now hoping to top 254mph in the modified class on her Sir Speedy Honda.

The six-foot blonde Texan featured on Visordown a couple of months ago when she was photographed modelling BMW's new S1000RR superbike.

Leslie Porterfield says: "I have dreamed of setting records. Ever since I bought my first motorcycle at 16, I have believed that I would become the fastest person in the world. When I first started out, people told me I was crazy, but I was fearless and forged ahead through every obstacle, motivated by the belief that I would one day set a new world record."

Gorgeous, talented, fast and married, probably.
