Just out of curiosity, where do you guys stay over there? Does everyone go to the hotel casinos in Wendover or can you stay in an RV on the salt? Do you fly into Salt Lake City? Does anyone know of any links that might answer all the questions I'm tempted to ask?

Cheers
Dave :D

Dave, theres plenty of infomation over at Landracing.com, Slim has a section called Bonneville Lodging, have a look there, :) ,,, fly into SLC, get yourself a rental, car, RV, Motor home, whatever, (thay dont know what a hire car is, :lol: ), by the way, dont wear a shirt with anthing to do with Bonnerville on it while getting the rental,, then drive 80 miles west, when coming from SLC you spend about an hour driving across Bonneville, ya cant miss it :mrgreen:

Greg

So if I wanted to go to Bonneville to run my Bike I'd basically need to plan about 18 mths to 2 years ahead?

Pete, because Speedweek is so huge, all of the accomodation is booked out up to twelve months in advance,, also, most of the Casions and Motels dont open reservations until the new year, when all rooms are snapped up almost overnight, :roll: ,, There is no problem getting accomodation for BUB, World of Speed or the Shootout, 8) ,, you can camp at "the bend in the road" which is similar to camping at Gairdner, but when it rains everything turns to shite, :(

Thanks Ron

This info is really helpful. I'll know one way or the other if it is possible early 2014. BUB would be great.

I'm going! :D

Meeting up with a old mate from the UK and we're crewing for a french bloke with a vintage Harley blown, on Alky!

International Eh!

Hope to get to meet as many people as possible, esp a certain Milwaukean and his Mighty Midget! :mrgreen:

We should arrive on Sat. We've hired an RV and will be heading for the bend in the road, or maybe the hardstand where the new Museum will be?

Anyway really looking forward to the trip and wearing an Aussie flag with pride!!

Bear in mind as well that some of the hotels have a stand by list and as the week goes on accommodation becomes available. When Gaz and I went, we didn't have a room until the last moment and during the week the hotel emptied out.

Davo and I will be heading across to cover it for Street Machine... well actually, we're going there to have a really good time and hopefully we'll get a story or 10 out of it. :)
