Visual Delight: Bonneville Speed Week (August 2012)

Feels like I have been waiting around forever to find good quality photos from Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats. Bonneville’s Speed Week had over 512 entries combining high-tech engineering and vintage automobiles-including custom belly tankers, hot rods, motorcycles and streamliners—gathered to set land speed records and race at upwards of 400mph upon the uninhabited salt shell (Nowness)

Below are my most favorite images captured by Simon Davidson (Nowness.com)

Its funny that I’m not really into manufactured cars but I am in love with the beauty of these custom engineered vintage aluminium beasts. Visiting one of these events is going up on my list of things I want to do one day.

Visit my previous post on Salar De Uyuni for more beautiful images of salt flats.
