Hi
My name is Grant Crawford and I live in the Seattle area. I?ve made plans to attend Bonneville this year, just Saturday and Sunday. I?ve read a bunch and feel like I?m pretty well prepared but would love it if anyone chimed in on things they might have wished they knew the first time they came to spectate. Besides the water, sunscreen and appropriate clothing. :)

Grant;

Try to attend the drivers' meeting at the starting line early Saturday morning. Everybody will be there and after the meeting you can drive your own vehicle down the track (at 55 mph). Have fun & wear sunscreen & a wide-brim hat. Drink water!

Great advice, thanks. If there?s a vendor for umbrella holders I?ll make sure to request bikini-clad! And yes I was going to try and make the drivers meeting. Thanks all.

I think there is a vendor in town.... or was a while back... check the billboards on the way out.
The right rental might come with a happy ending  :roll:  :cheers:

Hi, name?s Mark.
Been interested in LSR since I was at school, build a couple of rods including an ?English Hot Rod? 1172 Ford special. Unfortunately interest in Rods needs a kick, listening to this years Speed Week may have done it!
Currently employed working on historic aircraft, keeping Sea Fury?s and Swordfish aircraft flying.
Maybe a few questions in the future.

Hi Mark. Welcome to LSR!

Speaking of Sea Furies, a few years ago I met a fellow at Lake Tahoe who flies a Sea Fury in the Reno Air Races, Tom Dwelle. Do you know him?
