Located at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah, and referred to as the Bonneville Speedway, this ivory expanse is revered as one of the best venues in the world for motor sports. Numerous speed records have been set here and each summer marks as the beginning of newer ones. First used for motor sports in the year 1912, it attracted attention and went on to become a major racing track in the year 1930 after the legendary race that happened here between Ab Jenkins and Sir Malcolm Campbell. Its deserted, white landscapes, the ten mile (16 kilometer) long smooth track and the adrenaline-pumping roar of majestic vehicles all create an out-of-the-world experience for racers here. For those who don't live for speed, this track comes as a major attraction owning to the angelic aura it casts on its visitors. Major racing events include SpeedWeek, BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials, World of Speed, World Finals, and many more.
Located in Northern Utah, the Bonneville Salt Flats is a salt pan that was created from evaporation of the the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville.

Access in the Salt Flats is not restricted and visitors may drive on the salt.
