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!





Historic Bonneville Salt Flat Racers
Since Henry Ford made the automobile a mass-consumption commodity, people have been finding ways to strip superfluous parts, modify their engines and compete with one another. Drag racing is as old as the car itself, but the event is not. For decades it was frowned upon and the people who did it criticized for the danger it poses to others. There were no drag strips prior to C.J. Hart building the first ever track for the enthusiasts to race safely and protect the public. But man's conquest with speed continues... In 1937, the SCTA was created (Southern California Timing Association) and it organized hot rod clubs at the Bonneville Salt Flats They conglomerated multiple hot rod clubs into organized events intended to improve the public's view of hot rodding. Through trial-and-error the SCTA determined racing more than one car at a time on the flats was too dangerous because the blinding salt spray prevented drivers from seeing one another. These pioneers are the forefathers of American automotive race development and engineering. Cars built to test the limits of physics. In many ways, it's drag racing's grand-daddy. In 1951, the NHRA was founded, and drag racing became organized. Many of you might ask... "Why are you making comparisons between drag racing and land speed record breaking?" BOTH are products of hot-rodding. BOTH have origins in illegal street racing. BOTH were started by a guy with an engine, some tools, and an idea. Then the idea grew. Pause on the placards if you would like more information about this. What best describes these people are... post-war retired military engineers and mechanics with rudimentary aerodynamic knowledge, and too much time on their hands.
