At team from Honda will be on the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats this week attempting to set an outright land speed record for a Formula One car.

“The technical challenge of getting a race legal F1 car (albeit it with a few modifications for ultra high speed straight line running) to travel beyond 400 km/h on an unpredictable, unstable salt surface has proved to be a huge test for Bonneville 400 Technical Director Gary Savage and his small team.”

“Next week sees the climax of a long two-year project for the Honda Racing F1 team. We hope that the result on the Salt Flats will reflect the hard work and dedication that has been put into this project by all the team both in the UK and Japan”.
