Dealer Notes
Bonneville is one of the most popular areas for speed racing in the world. Bonneville Salt Flats became the destination for men who aspired to push it to the limits. In 1970, “The Blue Flame”, a rocket propelled vehicle, made the headlines by reaching six hundred and thirty miles per hour. The record stood for 13 years. A man from the UK, Richard Noble, drove a British designed, turbojet propelled, vehicle, Thrust2, at 633 miles per hour in 1983.

The British invasion continued fourteen years later, in October 1997, Andy Green, a member of the British Royal Air Force, reached supersonic speed. This time, Black Rock Desert, a dry lake bed in Nevada witnessed the historical blur of Andy Green. The engine, a turbofan, powered ThrustSSC at a speed of 763 miles per hour.
