BONNEVILLE SPEED WEEK BEGINS

By August 7, 2020General Posts

COVID be damned, Bonneville is ready to blast off! The historic salt flats of Bonneville will host the annual Speed Week land-speed event August 8–14. Southern California Timing Association (SCTA), the volunteer organization has been making it happen since 1949, went to bat with the Utah office of the Bureau of Land Management, and upon completing several alterations to the standard procedures, BLM granted approval to hold the event.

The annual gathering of speed freaks features teams ranging from 50cc vintage 2-strokes to 500 mph streamliners. The Bonneville Salt Flats are located two hours from Salt Lake City and just 15 minutes from Wendover, Utah, via Interstate 80. Spectator entry is available on site with $20 day passes and weeklong passes cost just $50.
