BONNEVILLE ROCKET BIKE

RICHARD BROWN WROTE: "The video shows run 5 on the salt flats, this was the first run we made averaging over 300MPH, with a peak of 335MPH. Initially you will see the the bike being towed for a short distance followed by a release signal and the tow truck swerving off line, the bike is then coasting at about 40MPH during which time I retract the skids and await the "In zone" signal that tells me I have reached the optimum position relative to the timming traps to ignite the rocket motor, take a look at the speed the mountains in the background are passing by! http://www.jet-pack.co.uk/content.aspx?guid=76abf735-ad51-4212-89bf-85c25d4aa31c

260 MPH Crash -- In Car Footage
During the October 2010 Bonneville World Finals, Danny Thompson (driver of the world's fastest Mustang) lifted off of the salt at approximately 264.7 MPH. Insufficient downforce sent the car flipping end over end into the air. It travelled over eleven hundred feet before touching down again and continuing to tumble. Danny suffered no injuries, nor did his iPhone 4, which was tucked into the front of his uniform. It was a testament to safety equipment and the astounding work performed by the crew at Hajek Racing.





B-Rocket : The Bonneville Adventure
Bell & Ross’ B-Rocket, launched in early 2014 is a concept bike with a neo-retro look with lines encapsulating the essential principles of aeronautical design. An airplane-motorcycle with an unique style whose extremely aerodynamic lines evoke the experimental aviation of the 1960s, Nevada’s speed bikes and the records they set on the salt lake at Bonneville. The B-Rocket embarked in a world tour and last June it arrived at the Bonneville Salt Flats – a legendary and totally unique place, an immense blank expanse of white, to shoot a film set in the ultimate dream location for time chasers. It’s lively, powerful and big on sensation. http://www.bellross.com Follow us on: Twitter: https://twitter.com/BellRossWatches Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BellRossWatches Instagram: http://instagram.com/bellrosswatches Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/bellrosswatc...
