Bonneville: The Great American Playground - The Downshift Episode 13

On this episode of The Downshift, we meet the original speed freaks! The Bonneville Salt flats in Utah are the veritable Valhalla of land speed racing. The world's fastest wheels have been competing here since the early 1900s, from Sir Malcolm Campbell's Blue Bird to today's fastest jet-powered streamliners. What started as just a sport has evolved into a vibrant culture anchored in history and a shared love for living life at the limits. The Downshift appears every Tuesday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/101867967859016552744/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com
