Bonneville - A Century of Speed

This massive exhibition book covers the collective history of Bonneville racing. Created to celebrate 100 years of Utah salt lake racing, the book describes the root of land speed racing in 1898 in France and sweeps to America with an overview of the Florida Speed Trials and the first known racing on the lake in 1914. The history, stats, and photos continue onward to the 2013 season.

Interspersed in the history and stories are 600 photos of the great Bonneville champions, including Mickey Thompson, Donald Campbell, John Cobb, Ab Jenkins and many more speed celebrities. The stories will help you appreciate that the core of Bonneville is the greater land speed community of individuals who have raced on the lake all these years. You will close this book in awe at the wonderful historic collection of LSR streamliners, roadsters, coupes, production cars, and bikes.

The book is also a fundraiser for the Salt Lay-down Project with Save the Salt.
