Hi,
My name is Mike and I have a motorcycle addiction. I am a R&D lab rat for a major manufacturer of industrial gas turbine engines. I can thank my co workers for getting me involved in land speed racing as some are very active and some are up to their eyeballs in build projects.
My personal plan is to run for fun at El Mirage (everyone says that  wink) in MP/G 1650 with a street legal Harley Super Glide, I hope to run at least 50 mph slower than the class record, and have a ton of fun doing it. The target was to have the bike ready 3 months ago, now the plan is to run as a guest before the end of the season. I am looking forward to all the great information this site has to offer.

Best Wishes: Mike

I hate to quote myself but I just learned I have to run in "Altered" (AP/G-1650) at El Mirage, joining the site is paying off already. smiley

Matt, tell us where you are, your age, a little about yourself and your project.  There may be someone close by that can help

Welcome, actually there is a class for you to run your S10. All electric vehicles are classed on a weight basis.

Class I   under 1099 lb
Class II  1100-2200 lb
Class III 2201 lb and over

Records are 204, 214, 314 respectively

Good luck,
DW


Thanks.  My S10 is well over 2201lbs but I will be topping out at nearly half the speed for that class record. The rulebooks states that all the safety requirements must be up to the class record.  So I really need to have everything up to 314mph standards?  Even if I am just running for time only?

Thanks,
Kerry

At Speedweek, pretty much. They may cut you some slack. Not a lot. World of Speed 150 club may be your best choice.

One of the Club events at WoS is probably your best shot although if you want to run speedweek you might contact the electric vehicle and/or the truck chairs and tell them what you are doing, they might give you a speed limit, but be aware that all the safety gear to run up to 175 will still be required.  Cage, tires, fire suppression, shut offs, drivers equipment.... pretty much everything but parachutes.
see ya on the salt  cool

Hello all, I am finally joining after being a long time lurker, live in the Stanwood Washington area been going to the salt last few years and met some nice folks at the Nugget last year.  Looking to possibly run something in 2016 till then I'll just make the drive down again this year and look for a tarp to sit under (driving a 34 3window not much room for mine)  A big thank you to the site and the people who run it for being available to us new bee's.

Welcome Hoss, do you own Salt Talks t-shirts to go with the event shirts you bought?  Jon is having a sale on old shirts and that is a way everyone can support the site while getting race wear at the same time.

Hey Hoss, I am from Kirkland and run a bike and also help on a car that the owners are out of Stanwood area and Yakima. Feel free to drop by our pits when you are down there. Look for bike 1060 or the red Mustang II number 1361.

Fellows from Washington State, watch for the Bonneville NW Reunion at the Shilo Inn, Portland Airport property, next February.

People from all over the nation attend. Bench racing interrupted by beer drinking and a marvelous dinner are the norm.

It will be announced on Landracing.com.

Hoss, you are correct sir I try to help Dev and Mickey out as much as I can.  Freud, glad to hear the reunion is in the works for next year. I had a great time at the 2014 event.
