At this speed, the tire patch that is touching the ground is LESS than the
width of your index finger across each tire.
Furthermore each patch is encountering dust and small sand-like particles
often. If you could keep the pace with this car and remain standing next
to it, you could reach over and push it away from you sideways with little
The announcer claims that an additional burst of oxygen in the fuel causes
a loss of control, but in all likelyhood, the wind just changes ever so
slightly, or began to blow (even lightly) and it was actually this that
nudged the cars nose off by just enough to start a flat spin.
Yes, a flat spin, like an airplane goes into!
No rudder on this vehicle, so no control!

The Arrow's On-board sensors automatically shut off the engine, shut off
the fuel flow, trigger the halogen bottle in the rider compartment, and pop
the twin parachute to ensure that the bike slows in a straight line rather
than rolling repeatedly or flipping end to end, either which could have
ended in injury or death for the rider.
The system works ! just ask Gary Hensley who pilots the bike.
Gary Hensley survived this crash, shaken but not injured, aside from
having been packed in salt when the rider compartment hatch cover was

A Little History of Bonneville Salt Flats.
The area was named after Benjamin Bonneville, a US army officer who
explored the area.
The flats were first recognized for their potential as a speed-testing
ground by Bill Rishel, who in 1896 had cycled across the area to win a
competition run by the newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst. In 1907
Rishel and two local businessmen tested the suitability of the salt for
driving on by taking a Pierce Arrow onto the surface of the flats.
A railway line across the Bonneville Salt Flats was completed in 1910,
marking the first permanent crossing.
The use of the salt flats as a speedway began in 1914 with Teddy Tetzlaff's
run there which exceeded the land speed record, although the new record was
not officially recognised.
Rishel continued to promote the area for racing, and in 1927 Ab Jenkins
raced against a train over a 125-mile (201 km) stretch between Salt Lake
City and Wendover. Jenkins went on to set up a 10-mile (16 km) circular
course on the salt which he used to establish
24 hour records in 1932 and 1933.
The area became internationally famous in 1935 when Malcolm Campbell set a
new land speed record, making him the first to break the 300 mph (480 km/h)
mark. For the next 35 years, nearly all land speed records were set at the
salt flats.The Bonneville Salt Flats are a 159 square mile (412 km²) salt
flat in northwestern Utah. The depth of the salt has been recorded at 6
feet (1.8 m) in many areas. A remnant of the ancient Lake
Bonneville of glacial times, the salt flats are now public land managed by
the Bureau of Land Management. It is the largest of many salt flats located
west of the Great Salt Lake.
Each rainfall erases tire marks and flattens the densely-packed salt pan
that is inhospitable to plants. The area is extremely flat and aligned
nearly perfectly with the shape of Earth
Matt Capri + Continental GT + Bonneville Salt Flats
Matt Capri’s souped-up Royal Enfield Continental GTs, ridden by Nadine de
Freitas, hit the salt flats of Bonneville and the result was a new Land
Speed record in the 500 MPPS (Modified Pushrod Partially Streamlined)
category, clocking an average speed of 97.69MPH (unofficial)!
Watch Matt and the Royal Enfield team at the Bonneville Salt Flats describe
the journey, from start to finish.
