Ferrari 288 GTO Rebody at Bonneville Salt Flats - World's Fastest Ferrari 275.4 mph
This is the fastest Ferrari in the world. It currently holds the AA\BFMS record at 275.4mph. This was done with a down run of 276.152mph and a return run of 274.650mph. Unofficially the car has gone 292.3mph a couple years ago under different conditions. The car is powered by a 540 cubic inch BBC with twin Borg Warner 80mm turbo. The Boost level during the record runs was 17lbs. We have built 6 of these cars and this car is the only on the does not have Ferrari power. The reason for this is that at Bonneville classes are separated by engine size. Currently Ferrari only builds engines up to 6 liter (V-12). To run in class B, A or double AA you must run larger cubic inch engines. We have run Ferrari powered cars in classes F (3.0 liter) and class C (5.0 liter) we also plan to run in class G (2.0 liter) next year. We are Ferrari guy's and would love to use only Ferrari power if larger engines were available.

Trevor Slaughter land speed record attempt, Weekend Today, 19 Jan 2013
To break Donald Campbell's long standing Australian Record of 403.10mph (648.73kph) and achieve the world record of over 458mph (737kph) at the Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA, Trevor's Land Speed Streamliner will be fitted with unique Mickey Thompson Bonneville LSR (Land Speed Record) Tyres.





Mickey Thompson Breaks 400 MPH Speed Barrirer
Thompson's life in the fast lane provides ample material for the filmmakers. From the drag strips, to desert racing to land speed record challenges, to car building, designing and race promotion Thompson earned his place as a certified automotive icon. He started calling himself the Fastest American on Wheels in 1958 after setting a record of 194 miles per hour. His goal was to break the world record of 394.2 miles per hour set in 1947. He began to build a world land speed record car -- the Challenger 1. Thompson took his new car out to the Bonneville Salt Flats on October 6, 1959 and piloted it to a World Speed Record of 363.48 miles per hour. He also set a world speed record in A/BFS Class that remained unbeaten until1990 when Al Teague broke it at 389.372 miles per hour in his streamliner. In 1960, Thompson returned to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a modified Challenger 1 for another record attempt. Its four 410 cubic-inch engines secured his title when he set a new American record at 330.51 miles per hour. He bested the world speed with a run at 407 miles per hour (which was faster than any man had drive a car before) but crashed before he could make a second run and thus secure the official record. The Challenger 1 had its last record run two year later on July 24, 1962. The poor conditions of the salt flats halted the first attempt because he couldnt get any traction as the car bounced on the salt bed. He found a smoother part of the Flats for another run and turned in a speed of 357 mph. But he announced that the Challengers days on the Salt Flats were over. Source: www.greatcarstv.com S003





Bonneville: Celebrating 100 Years of Speed
A land speed racing event at the Bonneville Speedway is something you should experience at least once in your life. You may love it or you may hate it, but it's something you will always remember. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the first organized races on the salt flats, and S&S was on the salt for the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials (formerly the BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials) to celebrate and to support the people who have put so much time, energy, and yes, money into bringing a bike to the track.
