You're welcome here -- and you're welcome, too.  I put your statement of location into the avatar area for you.  That's what they were asking you to do -- mostly so I wouldn't give you one of the preferred locations, such as, maybe, mmmm, Long Labia, Louisiana.  Yeah -- that's a nice one, isn't it?

Welcome to the Forum.  Top end your 'Busa? Why the heck not?  Take a tooth or three off the back sprocket, put a bunch of safety gear on the bike and yourself, and come on out and play! :cheers: :-D :-D :cheers:

My name is Joe and I have always wanted to run at Bonneville or Maxon and never had the funds or a car.  I just inherited a running 1961 Olds with the original 215.  It needs work but I believe it may have to potential for a project car.  It is light with a clean body and complete.  I do plan on getting a rulebook, but I just wanted to get some idea started.  I think E/GALT is what I'm looking at.

Yes at 215 cid it's an "E" engine. I think you will be in E/GCAlt. Bad news on running it at Maxton. But they have a newer, better place now.

Hi everyone.

I'm a civil engineer in Miami FL.
I'm highly interested in the technical side of world's fastest supercars.
Would like to know about the technical lessons learned in salt flats and how they can be applied to fastest road cars.

Would like to see the world's fastest supercar title to come back to America by dethroning the Bugatti Veyron.
If possible doing so with a more American design than the Lotus-based Hennessey Venom GT.

Bigtime;

The fastest way to learn about high speed cars is to attend Speed Week next year and talk to the teams. You will learn a lot and have a good time, too.

Hi All,

I figured I should quickly introduce myself to the group.

I made the big trek down to Speed Week from Manitoba Canada in 2012.  It was a great time and I am looking forward to returning as a participant.

At the moment I'm just reading through the rulebook and getting rather confused.  haha.  This site has already helped me out a lot, and for that I thank all of you!  I can't wait to learn more and get back to the salt!

Welcome, I'm originally from Winnipeg but I've been out in Calgary since '69. Have you picked a project yet? If you have any questions this is definitely the place to ask.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the welcome!  I have some family and friends out in Calgary.  I was pleasantly surprised with all the Alberta plates I saw at Speed Week.

Classic Production seems to be the category for me.

I am Joe and live in SE Michigan. I Just picked up an Ohio mile record holding mustang from an Oklahoma Racer. Got a great car from a great guy~!  The previous owner ran an GM motor, I'll be running a Ford. He ran 173, I am looking forward to May and just getting a full pass in! I may not post much but I will read these forums when I have questions. Would like to run Bonneville in 2016.
