#throwbackthursday Came across this copy of a local Californian newspaper. That’s me standing behind the roll cage with my old 4 banger sitting in the engine bay. Back to 2010 when @strubillicious and myself teamed up with a lot of help from others to run Bonneville Speed week in V4F. Sam’s car and my 4 banger which I shipped from the U.K. As you can imagine there were many hurdles to overcome not least a motor stuck in customs, a car that was still being finished on the salt and a motor that suddenly didn’t want to play ball now it was on US soil! Many hours, frustrations, £/$ and banzai runs to Salt Lake City in the early hours all accumulated to one run on 2 cylinders with no clutch. Speed? 70 something? Can’t remember. #dedication #liveandlearn #lifeexperience #becauseracecar #bonneville #bonnevillesaltflats #speedweek #hotrod #racecar #landspeedracing #4banger #sidevalve #tbt
Had an excellent conversation with James for the @nobraking podcast, James’ skillful and sweeping questions about racing, land speed records, and art made for a compelling experience. Please have a listen on your way somewhere or if you’re stuck in the rain, hope you enjoy it! Thanks again to James for including me in your exceptional series about the life of No Braking! . . photo: @jam9k from Bonneville Speed Week 2017 with @irenewyork . . #Repost @nobraking ・・・ Stacie B London is an industrial designer with a passion for art that has become a vintage motorcycle addict. @triplenickel555 took up riding late in life, when she bought her first bike. She went from riding around Los Angeles, to road racing across the US, to starting a motorcycle club named the @eastsidemotobabes and now she has broken land speed records and looking to go faster still.

Quinten won Speed Week two years running with his street/ strip twin turbo LS1 and all under the bonnet!

A white car in the Great Salt Lake Desert in Utah. This is the place where once a year people gather to drive their vehicles as as fast as possible. This event is called Speed Week. My photo reportage about this event was published in a number of international magazines. . . . #GreatSaltLakeDesert #SpeedWeek #Utah #SaltFlats #Bonnevillesaltflats #bonevillespeedweek #travel #nikon #nikonpro #photojournalism #nikonnl #nikonpro #photojournalism

This is a surprise to me but then again not really... I try to be independent & different but when you love choppers, speed, & adventure, that's admittedly difficult. I've fantasized about LandSpeed Racing since I was a boy, seeing my friend's @lowbrowcustoms efforts didn't sour my desires but I certainly didn't want to be a copycat. So I focused on High Altitude Ridding with @himalayanheroesusa... then out of the blue Kyle & Tyler invited me to crew at Bonneville (I think they knew what would happen) I quickly learned it's a "more the merrier" affair as they welcomed me into their #racefamilly ! I WAS HOOKED! Leaving the salt I bought 2 copies of the SCTA rulebook (little did I know I had a reason for 2). Days later on a call with @kickstartcycle I was venting & wondering how I was going to build a bike for #Speedweek 2019 & run 6 Himalayan tours while taking care of my biz & personal life... no small task for me because though I do wrench I don't consider myself a "builder" leaving that title for more deserving folks. Anyhow before the convo with Walt was done we had hatched a plan to team up for his Born Free bike making it a Landspeed Racer. The plan is I'll support him along the way & after the bike is shown we hit Speed Week, I'll "Pilot" while Walt is Crew Chief! It's funny how if you keep working at your dreams life has a way of laying the road in front of you... If you had told a teenage me I'd be, riding the highest roads in the world, spitting fire, flying planes, & heading for Bonneville, I likely would have thought I lacked the confidence for any of that... I don't know if I'm ready for this Landspeed thing but it should fit in nicely with the other wacky things I've been up to these last few years. For a guy that doesn't like to put himself out there, life sure is driving it, what the hell maybe that makes it more authentic or something... Well, at least that’s how I'm selling myself on putting up this series of photos. Maybe if it helps another person struggling with self-esteem/addiction/ptsd take the leap to follow their dreams then its the right thing, regardless thanks to all my industry peeps for the encouragement! Let's go racing! -Bear
Be on the look out at SpeedWeek at New Smyrna Speedway as @dougcoby and the #2 Mayhew Tools Chevy will be there! http://ow.ly/HUkt30nkfu2 #NWMT #MayhewTools #SpeedWeek
This week is speed week and so we have got the parachutes out ready to add that extra bit of resistance to help you make maximal gains! Also they are so much fun!! Our French connection Mark and Laurence expertly demonstrated the use of the parachutes during yesterday’s HIITnRun session! 🇫🇷 Paddy 😁 #running #speed #resister #frenchconnection #trainwithus #speedweek #parachute #runners #instarunners #runnersofinstagram #tuesday

Speed Freaks - I have begun a long-term project photographing as many of the Land Speed race drivers as possible. As I wander around Bonneville and El Mirage there are so many amazing people and faces I just can’t help but want to document the people that make this magic happen. The cars and motorcycles are incredible, but they would be nothing without the teams of people that conceive, build, drive and support these incredible efforts. Much respect. . . . This portrait was made on the salt at Bonneville just before a run down the course on a beautiful day at Speed Week in 2018. I wish that I knew the names of all of the the drivers but I am hesitant to interrupt their intense mental preparation as they are so close to the starting line and ask for more than a quick moment to make a portrait. So, if you know this driver please comment below. . . . I have tentatively titled this series “Speed Freaks” because it really takes a special kind of person to invest this much time, effort and money, and even their lives in pursuit of this passion for speed. And, because I like people who are considered freaks, weird or unusual. “Normal” people scare me. :) . . . #portrait #bonneville #speedweek #speedfreaks #series #analog #film #kodak #kodakprofessional #mediumformat #blackandwhite #timeless #racingculture #speedculture #2018 #passion #scta #scottphotoco www.ScottPhoto.co (not .com)

Stepping back in time here! Shot with a 2MP Cd Mavica from Sony! Took this 2003 during the land speed racing event speed week on the Bonneville Salt Flats! I would have been...19 at the time. We went out there in this obscene yellow banana car and set a land speed record haha! #timecapsule #speedweek #2003 #sony #gen1 #saltflats #bonnevillesaltflats #hotrod #classiccars #americanmuscle #instagay #digitalphotography #carguy

Michael DiGonis out of Jamaica, New York entered the MD Engineering Company Pantera in Class C Grand Touring at Bonneville for Speedweek in 1981. Powered by a 351" Ford, he was after the Kehoe-McKinney-Banks record of 187.643 mph set in '79. Mike managed to run a quick 184.985 mph for a third in class while Chuck Greenman claimed a first at 198.216 and bumped the record to 201.213 mph. ©AHRF/Julian Doty Collection (DOT_733) // #AmericanHotRodFoundatino #Bonneville #Speedweek
