MG Speed Trials at Bonneville Salt Flats 1956
MG produced a series of experimental cars that were piloted by Captain George Eyston and took several world speed records. Several other speed record attempts continued with Goldie Gardner exceeding 200 mph (320 km/h) in the 1100 cc EX135 in 1939. After World War II record breaking attempts restarted with 500 cc and 750 cc records being taken in the late 1940s. And once again, in the mid 1950s.

Break The Record
In 1970, The Blue Flame became the world land speed record holder. It was the last American team to set the world land speed record, and the last on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The car was designed and built by Reaction Dynamics, Inc. (Pete Farnsworth and Dick Keller) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and driven by Gary Gabelich of Long Beach, California. It had a rocket motor using liquefied natural gas (LNG) and hydrogen peroxide as the fuel. The world record set was 630.388 mile per hour in the kilometer, also the first automobile record over 1,000 kilometers per hour - at 1,014.656 kilometers per hour. That record was finally broken in 1997. Watch the YouTube video "Speedquest" to see the whole story.





Ab Jenkins, Mormon Meteor at Bonneville
The Mormon Meteor I and III were two land speed record cars built in the 1930s by Ab Jenkins. Jenkins was the 24th mayor of Salt Lake City, Utah from 1940 to 1944 and was a professional race car driver. Jenkins' interest in motorsports began with racing motorcycles on dirt tracks and cross country. He then became interested in land speed records at the Bonneville Salt Flats. He was instrumental in establishing Bonneville as a location for such events, and in attracting overseas drivers such as George Eyston and Sir Malcolm Campbell to compete there. He drove the Duesenberg "Mormon Meteor" to a 24-hour average land speed record of 135 miles per hour (217 km/h) in 1935. In 1940 Jenkins set the 24-hour record of a 161.180 mph (259.394 km/h) average that lasted for 50 years (until 1990). He died on a visit to Milwaukee, Wisconsin S019
