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.

Speed By Spectre plans to introduce their Streamliner at the Bonneville Salt Flats in 2009
The Speed By Spectre Streamliner, being built to run over 400mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats. In 2005, Amir Rosenbaum, founder of Spectre Performance, began his quest for speed by running a Ferrari F40 at the famed Bonneville Salt Flats. Although close to setting a record, the F40 was not the ideal car for this venue. Amir and the Ferrari have competed in several other venues prior to this, currently holding the record at the historic Virginia City Hillclimb in Nevada, but its a Bonneville record he really wants. With this in mind, Amir and Speed By Spectre have set out to build a Streamliner, or what they call their Speedliner. Currently in the construction phase at Performance Fabrication in San Carlos, California, the Speedliner will run in the BGS (Blown Gas Streamliner), Engine Class AA. With the goal of making this the first gasoline powered vehicle to run on the salt at over 400mph, Amir and Speed By Spectre have their sites set on a new world record in 2009. Check our website and forum for frequent updates on the Speedliners progress at www.speedbyspectre.com **You can also find us on Myspace at: http://www.myspace.com/spectreperformance **or on the Facebook Don't forget to check out our other Speed by Spectre Videos!





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.

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
