Mazda RX-7 Crash at 225 MPH!!
Bonneville Salt Flats:
3rd gen Mazda RX-7 race car trying to beat the land speed record for a
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!
Chris Ireland's Indian, Bonneville Speed Week 2012
This is a longer version of my 1942 Indian Scout at Bonneville. She was
shipped over with 5 other Brit bikes. I did 120mph on the Dyno in the UK at sea level but
the Salt's a great leveller & I manage 81.5mph, but still not bad for a 70
year old sidevalve & it put a huge grin on my face! It took 2 years to save
for this & I'll be back in 2 years time, as I now have "Salt Fever".

This was the last run for Team Arrow, things seemed to be going great. Then
at 240 mph just after mile 4 the tire just separated sending Team arrow
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
Special thanks to Bob Williams for allowing me to edit and post Team
Arrow's video, they are a true world class team . Stay tuned for more
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
