Mickey Thompson: Fastest Man on Wheels
Mickey Thompson roared out of the hot rodding world of Southern California to become the "Fastest Man on Wheels," when his Pontiac powered Challenger One broke the 400 mph mark at the Bonneville Salt Flats. This didn't become an official record because of difficulties he encountered on a second run. The speed authorities require a second run and take the average for the record books. This promotional film captures the drama of his attempt.





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.

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.





Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - /RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt about. Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes. If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson For more on motorcycles, visit http://RideApart.com
