Hi Eric
I live in Arlington Hts Ill. I drove my 1979 Pontiac Trans Am  to the World of Speed in 2011. I made the 130 club and hope to go back this year for the 150 club. All I can say is a day doesn't go by without me thinking about Bonneville. I've also been to Ohio ECTA 4 times. Last Sept finally made a decent run 144mph. Still working on the kinks. Get that car together and go for the ride of your life.
No trailer ran 135mph at the World of Speed 2011 see you in 2012 in Ohio and back at Bonneville at the world of speed going for the 150club 1979 Firebird T/A White Black Hood. Ck out YOU TUBE. KERRY AT BONNEVILLE. Didn't  make 2012,2013,2014. ECTA in Ohio 2012 trans went out and 2013 fuel problems . Still trans and fuel problems. Finally all looks good. Ready to drive (no trailer) 1500 miles to Bonneville and It's cancelled. NEXT YEAR. SEPT. ECTA RAN 144 MPH. GETTING BETTER

Hello, Eric here... Will be running in the Ohio Mile this year for the first time. Into old motorcycles. I'm sure I'll catch the bug and end up running a car in the next few years as well.

Hello folks, glad to be here!  I'm part of a "seat of your pants" effort to bring a modified partial streamlined '74  Yamaha RD350 to the flats this year, weather and conditions permitting.  We have a rulebook, even so, we will have lots of questions.  We are located in NEPA (that's Northeast Pennsylvania for those who don't know) in the Pittston area.  The fun has begun!  Newbies... sheesh!

Hi

Bjorn from Sweden here.
I have been participating in the Swedish Speed Weekend on ice for the last 4 events. First year on my Kawasaki 750 H2 1972  twostroke, second on my Kawasaki Z1A 900 1974. The two last events with my kind of home made 125 cc Iceliner. My Iceliner Project has not been that sucsessfull so far and I need to get some input from experienced people.

Best regards from Bjorn

Howdy, Bjorn.  I'm glad you showed up here.  But -- will you find a wealth of knowledge and experience here?  If you're looking for land speed racing stuff -- yep, you will.

But as for help with a 'liner for the ice:  Hey -- we don't have much ice racing here so good frickin' luck in finding help!! :evil: :evil:

Seriously -- thanks for joining the Forum.  I hope you enjoy the hours that you'll likely end up spending here.

Hi
Thanks for the welcome
Regarding speed runs at ice. I think the basics are pretty much the same as they are on salt.

We will see.

Hello all

I had the bug bite nine years ago and have made the annual trek to Speed Week at Lake Gairdner South Australia. Racing a 1987 HD Sportster in the 1350 MPG class and if I haven't had bad luck then I wouldn't have had any luck at all. Always next year!
Cheers

Hi,

I'm Ramón, we're two brothers from Valencia (Spain), we were racers in two stroke 250cc classic class and F2 in spanish championships. Now we want to run in bonneville the next year. we have many doubts about rules and documentation.....frame construcción limits....our main problem your language, but go slowly learning.

Best regards,

Welcome, Ramon -- and your brother, too.  Please don't worry about your English skills here.  We've got folks from lots of countries -- and more than a few Yankees -- that don't have a 100% perfect grip on our American language - so you'll be in good company.

I don't know how much you've seen around this website, but feel free to ask questions and read and study and have fun.  And look forward to racing on the salt.  It's something, all right -- never to be forgotten.

See you on the salt. :cheers: :cheers:

Welcome Ramon;

The best suggestion I have to learn the rules for your class is to buy a rule book and study it thoroughly. As Jon said, your questions can probably be answered by someone on this forum.
