Visitor Tips and News About Bonneville Salt Flats
Had a lot of fun. Do drive carefully, because there are pockets of wet mud that will send you swerving! Also, your car will need a good wash afterwards. We found a self0service coin operated car wash in West Wendover at the intersection of Butte and Pueblo.[Anya, 06/06/2012]

This is the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats, site of numerous land speed records. The races are held every year over Labor Day weekend. Drivers who reach 200 mph receive a hat letting everyone know they did it.
We are planning a trip there again in 2008 to test the limits of my boyfriend's 1995 NSX. I'll report back on our efforts.[June, 11/03/2007]
