A short video done by a friend from Denmark who was at Bonneville this year. Turn up the sound. The Weslake sounds great!

A few shots from Bonneville 2013. The first time out with the new alloy sidecar wheel.

The endless roads in Nevada.




Vintage BMW record setter.


200+ mph sidecar. I don't have any details.


Pushing up to the line.


Waiting to be told when to run.


More waiting.


Getting the GO signal.


Leaving the line.



On the course.


The salt was really wet. The sidecar wheel packed every run. Had to abandon it.


More waiting.

While I was waiting in line to run I was interviewed by a French TV station, TF1. I get kind of flustered when cameras are stuck in my face. A friend in Belgium sent m this link. Not being a French speaker I have no idea what I'm saying.
