Phil Hawkins is magical with his camera on the Bonneville Salt Flats- these shots were captured at the 2013 BUB Motorcycle Speed trials, which was sadly rained out on Wednesday (half way through the event).

While an utter bummer for anyone trying to break world land speed records, it’s a beautiful sight for the rest of us. “There’d be no rainbows without rain” as they say.

A wet plate photograph from Paul d’Orleans (of the Vintagent), a modern ‘Rollie Free’ at Bonneville Salt Flats for BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials. BUB got rained out again this year, which makes setting land speed records impossible, but does however make for great photographs.  
Still, so sad I didn’t make it.

Film: Out of Nothing

The magic of Bonneville Salt Flats and land speed racing there is mentioned often around these parts. During my 2012 trip to the BUB speed trials and Bonneville, I had the good fortune to meet a very talented photographer and videographer, Chad DeRosa. He and I both had the same mission- capture the magic of the salt flats and Sodium Distortion race team. Our end vision however was very different- he was filming for “Out of Nothing,” an epic tale of four men forging land speed records.

I am so thrilled that Phil and I happened to be free and run into each other on the flats- I can’t imagine not having these awesome photos. Thanks again, man!

You guys sick of these yet? Too bad, because I’ve still yet to find the time to finish my write up of the trip. 

Ninja on the salt flats! Look out!

Jason Omer on his Sodium Distortion partial streamliner at BUB motorcycle speed trials this last week.
He was waiting for Mark on the Ducati & Chad in the plane to make a pass for video.
Jason set an AMA national 1000cc APS-PG record of 156.8 mph. He beat the old record by more than 6 mph.

Bonneville 2012 BUB Trip Part 1

Well, I’m in Utah now… 

Justin took this photo of me before I went into the airport TSA security zone… wearin’ my hat for the flats and moto boots to avoid shoving them in my checked bag (with all my other gear). 

The arsenal is readied in preparation for my departure to the Bonneville Salt Flats. Photography MANIA up in this joint!
