Why would anyone build a Bonneville Car?
"First, The Bonneville Salt Flat Raceway is sacred ground to those who follow racing. For over 100 years people have been setting land speed records on the same stretch of salt. It is the last venue where a little guy can build a car or bike in a shop and run on the same course as automotive legends and set a record. I told my mother when I was 10 that someday I would drive a car at Bonneville at 200 mph. It took 42 years to get there the first time" " We did not set a record but we averaged over 200 mph on the last day of Speedweek.
Why run for a record?
"I think it is intriguing to build a car to run in a class with a specific engine size with the goal of running faster than anyone in the world has ever run with that size engine. I think it is equally interesting to think of designs that you think will work, then fabricate the parts and install them. Finally, there is a challenge to building a car with one's own hands, towing it 2,700 miles across the United States and then having the nerve to drive it!"
We want to test your products in the harshest environment in motor sports. Contact us, we enjoy working with parts suppliers.
SAVE THE SALT
The salt flats need our help due to 30 years of mining activity... we need help if we are going to carry on the 100 year tradition of setting land speed records on American soil. Please go to savethesalt.org and donate today.
We hope to see you on the salt in August 2018, good luck and good racing.
