Blowfish Run 2011

Well, they did it again! The Rad Rides/Poteet team has shattered a twenty-five year old record with the world famous "Blowfish"! Five passes were made this year at the salt flats, all of them were over 300mph! A new record was set at 307.399 in B, Blown Fuel Competition Coupe with Danny Burrows at the wheel. Top run was 315.913mph with an exit speed of 319.260mph. This put the Blowfish into the Bonneville history book as one of the fastest production cars on the salt!

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 production vehicle. 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 effort. 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!
