There are two wind tunnels in the complex.  The Aerodyn tunnel is the biggest.  It can swivel cars to check the aero in yaw, has jacks to adjust ride height, and can spin the tires during the test.  Big dollar factory teams use this tunnel.  Private people can too if they can afford it.

Motorcycles, bobsleds, bicycles, and other smaller vehicles are tested in the A2 wind tunnel.  It does not have yaw capability, jacks, or tire spinners.  It costs less.  $495 an hour with a 2 hour minimum.  Today I am in it and the US olympic bobsled team will be using the tunnel tomorrow.

The real reason for no FIA attempts this year or for the forseeable future is not for lack of interest.  It is because the salt will not support it. Running toward floating mountain has proven able to provide the speeds necessary for half of a record attempt. But the salt on the far end is so thin it cannot provide the traction necessary for a decent return run.
Until the pumping project really moves forward with positive salt lay down, we won't see any high speed FIA records set at Bonneville.

I think the C/BMMP got bumped to around 192 this weekend by Ken Caven.

absolutely wonderful

thanks guys for the confirmation.

It has been a great year on the salt, good to see Nish getting close to 400 as well.

World of speed could be another good meet if track condition hold.

Look forward to seeing a recap on the records set at the USRA meet, hopefully they will post on their website.

A friend lost a GoPro camera while heading for home during Speed Week.  They were pitted at about the 3 1/2 mile mark facing the return road.  The camera was last seen sitting on the running board of one of their vehicles, so it could have shaken loose just about anywhere on the salt, or on the way to the truck stop.

Did anyone happen to find it, or hear of someone else that might have?  If so, please send me a PM.  We'll also check with the SCTA office.

The camera is one thing, but it's the memories on the card that are most valuable.  Thanks much....

Another first class job well done by the USFRA and crew.We had a great time watching some killer runs and records getting set and had a successful trip with our roadster as well.
See you next year
