Land Speed Racing is a unique voluntary, no trophy, sport that consists of
very dedicated people who drive hot rods, roadsters, belly tankers,
lakesters, motorcycles, and streamliners. All are pursuing their dream of
becoming a Land Speed record holder. A Land Speed record is the fastest
speed achieved by any wheeled vehicle on land. The annual Speedweek event
is held every August at the Bonneville Salt Flats in northwestern Utah.
Participants come from all over the world to participate in the 7 day
event. The area is extremely flat and aligned nearly perfectly with the
shape of Earth. The use of the salt flats as a speedway began in 1914.The
area became internationally famous in 1935. For the next 35 years, nearly
all land speed records were set at the salt flats. Besides racing, several
commercials and movies have been filmed at the salt flats, including
portions of Independence Day and Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End.
