On this episode of The Downshift, we meet the original speed freaks! The
Bonneville Salt flats in Utah are the veritable Valhalla of land speed
racing. The world's fastest wheels have been competing here since the early
1900s, from Sir Malcolm Campbell's Blue Bird to today's fastest jet-powered
streamliners. What started as just a sport has evolved into a vibrant
culture anchored in history and a shared love for living life at the

Twin Turbo Ferrari Enzo Takeoff at Bonneville (2010)
Yeah the vid quality sucks, its a point and shoot camera and if you have
ever tried to shoot anything on the salt, you know what a pain in the ass
it is without a good set of filters (which this cam lacks)
Ok, for the people that are complaining about how slow the car takes off on
the line, then you really don't understand how Bonneville works. The cars
do not take off hard at the line. The tires on this Ferrari were very, very
narrow and it would spin all over the place if it tried to launch hard. In
fact, most of the really high speed cars out on the salt flats need a truck
to push them off to get started because they are all geared for top speed
and NOT 1/4 mile or 0-60. Bonneville isn't a drag race, it's all about top
speed here and a hard launch doesn't matter!
Anyway..... read about the car here on Jalopnik
This was the second run of the day for the car. It was on the short course
and IIRC it was for licensing. Gorgeous rebuilding of the car through and
through and lots of respect to the owner for taking a $1M+ car and making
it a salt flat racer! Love it!
Bloodhound SSC 1000 mph rocket car, land speed record attempt
Equinox Graphics is proud to present the visualisation of Bloodhound SSC,
the trans-sonic rocket car aiming to smash the current land speed record
and raise it to a mind-bending 1000 mph (Mach 1.4). The car is being
designed and built in Britain, and Equinox Graphics has had the privilege
of working in association with the design team to bring the car to life.
The minute-long viral video was produced on time and at High Definition

rendering time on our computer cluster.
The animation has proved extremely popular with the world's media, and has
proved to be the ideal medium for engaging the public's imagination. It has
so far been featured on BBC news (TV and online), and on stations as
diverse as CNN and Al Jazeera.
