Owner description: A dry, open area near Lake Bonneville known for car racing.
Reviewed 23 April 2009

The Bonneville Salt Flats has been a site for land speed racing since the Thirties. It has miles of hard, white, salt-- a perfect surface for driving a car as fast as it will go. Some wheel- driven cars have topped 450mph! The landscape is so flat and expansive that you can actually see the curvature of the earth.
Speed Week is held every August; it is popular with racers and car enthusiasts--500 cars have run there the last few years. There are no grandstands, no big prize money, just racers out there having fun and going fast. This is the way racing used to be.
