Stroker, get a rule book so your trip is racing and not spectating
The speed you can go is not what you have to build to, it is the record speed.  Tire requirements may be an area you have to look at for the salt.

I have an ECTA rulle book. Now if my steering damper will arrive before hitting the road tomorrow!

Planning on the (formerly) BUB event in August. Is the rule book posted their website not complete/official?

That depends on if Offerings to the God of Speed is included. Also, weekday or weekend  cheesy

edit - I have seen Boys of Bonneville but only once...

My name is Jay Lane and I am from Dallas Texas.  I have a 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Opulent Blue 6-spd manual 597rwhp/575rwtq.  I'm somewhat new to land speed racing and I've competed at the Texas Mile 3 times now (March '13, October '13 and March '14.). Needless to say, I'll be back in October '14.

I was completely hooked after my first pass and I'm here to learn as much as I can.  I appreciate all of your help and I promise not to be a stupid newb or a PIA!  I would also love to help in any way I can and hopefully meet some of you in real life?

Thank you,
Jay

Hello,
I'm Gus Jackson, son of "Don Jackson" (or as you people know him "Salt27"). I've been going to Bonneville since I was eleven years old and Speed Week 2014 will mark my eighth year of a mid-August vacation on the Salt Flats.

Currently I live under the same roof as my parents in Yoncalla Oregon, but soon will be living in Eugene Oregon when I start attending college this September.

Last year my dad let me race our motorcycle at Bonneville for the first time of my life, it was an awesome experience, not to mention I was fortunate enough to get my name in the record books.

I've helped Jon and Nancy Wennerberg out some with their Salt Talks BBQ, some of you guys might know me as that pesky kid always asking people to buy raffle tickets.

Along with the my father and the Wennerbergs, Dr. Freud has been a great mentor for me; he taught me what Bonneville is truly about, provided tips on how to race safely, and also made me aware of what a great opportunity Bonneville grants to us racers.

Cheers,
Gus

When I got the notice of a new Forum member I thought it might be you, Gus, using the name that Freud has used when talking about or to you.  Welcome to the Forum.  I expect that you've got some idea of what goes on here, if for no other reason than you've heard your dad laughing or cursing (as the situation may bring about) while reading on it.  Since you've got some great experience at Bville already I expect you know enough folks that you also know that we'll do our best to help you along iuf and when you come up with questions that need answering (about racing, that is.  You're on your own to get answers to most of your college courses).

One more time:  Welcome, Joel Augustus.  It's good to have you here.  Say hi to the old guy that hangs around with you, please.

Jon,
Thank you for acknowledging my appearance on this site. I'll now be able to keep tabs on my dad, and hopefully help you out with keeping him in line. Also, I'll have you know, the old guy who lives with me claims he's only seven. I wasn't quite sure how to react to his response. But I'll just pretend it's the early stages of dementia.

Hi - I'm Syd Wall from Stratford upon Avon in the UK. I've been fascinated by Bonneville since I first got interested in motor sport in the 1960s and this year I realise my dream by coming to 2014 Speed Week. I'm a rally sport photographer and am looking forward to getting masses of atmospheric images from my few days there. I've already made contact with Anthony Huntimer who's given me much useful information so far, but will be coming back to the forum to ask numerous questions before August.

Howdy, Syd, and thanks for joining the Forum.  If you've been in touch with Mr. Huntimer you've likely been told this, but if you're desirous of press credentials so you can photograph for fun AND profit you'll need to get said permission from SCTA.  I'd suggest that you contact JoAnn Carlson, the secretary, to being the arrangements.  If you're photographing only for personal pleasure there aren't any requirements - as far as I know - but with the credentials you'll get a cool safety green vest to wear and maybe - just maybe - some access to stuff that a mere "civilian" wouldn't have.  No promises there, of course.

Stop by at the Seldom Seen Slim pit for a howdy when you're out there, too.  We'll see you on the salt.

Thanks Slim..I will drop in, whether I'm wearing the green vest or not. But I'll be trying for accreditation - working on letters from editors now.

Even w/o a credential you will be able to get enough fotos for more stories

than you can write. A credential is the least of your worries.

Trust me.

This will be my 141st trip since 1963.
