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.

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

Join the crew as they safety prep the driver for the first run. This is Part 2 of 3 videos. Be sure to check them all out. 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.





Bonneville Salt Flats: Automotive heaven
We found a place where the automobile is king and speed is the one true god. It's a piece of land shaped roughly like a frying pan—flat and hot—bordered by mountains, and crusted in fine white granules of salt. To get there, drive west for about an hour and a half from Salt Lake City, Utah on the I-80 towards Reno. Drive past the vast pools of sulfur, where there's no escaping the smell of rotten eggs. Take exit No.4 and keep going until the road ends. You'll feel a bump as the wheels of your car drop off the edge of the pavement and then start rolling across the Bonneville Salt Flats. Welcome to gearhead heaven.

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
