How Do I Join The 200 MPH Club?
The Bonneville 200 MPH Club is an organization that recognizes outstanding achievement in land speed racing and has no affiliation with any organization or sanctioning body. The Bonneville 200 MPH Club Record Book shows all of the existing records held by its club members with their speeds and the dates that they were achieved. Over the years, new classes have been added by SCTA & USFRA. You will notice that all of the classes that are still open have minimum speeds. It’s a great accomplishment to break an existing record. To set a record in an open class is the same accomplishment because of the established minimum speeds. If the Bonneville 200 MPH Club did not establish these minimums, it would lose much of its integrity and credibility. This would not be fair to all of the people who have worked so hard to break records or minimums to become a member. How does one qualify for membership in this famous club?
1) Fill out an official entry form from a sanctioning body recognized by the Bonneville 200 MPH Club. These sanctioning bodies include the Southern California Timing Association (S.C.T.A.) http://www.scta-bni.org or the Utah Salt Flats Racing Association (U.S.F.R.A.) http://www.saltflats.com
2) Prepare your vehicle to meet all rules and technical requirements of that sanctioning body.
3) Break an existing record or established minimum over 200 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats and you will have qualified for membership in the exclusive Bonneville 200 MPH Club, joining some of the most distinguished names in auto racing.
4) Where there is a record and a minimum in the same class, the higher speed prevails.
