Saltlake gir ny mening/Salty roads comes to a new dimension

Monday: We spent the whole day driving in beautiful landscapes. Hundreds of kilometers with prairie and plains.
Tuesday: We drove to Park city (Salt Lake City) to shop at an outlet, then drove to Wendover.
Wendoveris morewell known as the speedrecord track, Bonneville Salt flat.

Today we drove to the salt lake, Bonneville speedway. World record for "land speed record" was set in 1970 at a speed of 1014 km/th.
We tried to break the record today, but we didn't succeed. We just did about 85 km/h, but we had a lot of fun. Had a feeling of driving on ice. Not because of the heatness, but it was just an optical show-off, with the white surface of the desert.
Thedry salt lake goes over 80 kilometers straight ahead.Later on we had to steam of the salt from the cars for two hours. Hopefully they don't rust.

In august will a Renault team try to break the speed record for Renault 4 at the same place. Good luck! Link: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150256950457863.340942.116825037862

Later on, further to Ely, Nevada. A small casino-town, with no charme. Just cheap casinoes, but the mexican food was good.

Tomorrow we will hopefullyreach Las Vegas!

Mandag: Vi brukte hele dagen p kjre.
Tirsdag: Vi dro frst til Park cityfor shoppe litt p et outlet, og kjrte senere til Wendover.

Onsdag:Vi tok en tur utp en saltslette kalt Bonneville speedway. Verdensrekorden for kjrety ble satt i 1970 med en fart p 1014 km/t. Vi prvde sl rekorden i dag - men lyktes dessverre ikke. Vi hadde kun rundt 85 km/t men hadde det utrolig gy. Vi hadde flelsen av kjre p is! Ikke p grunn av varmen, men fordi det s ut som is p en frossen sj. Saltsjen er 80 kilometer lang. Etterp mtte vi hytrykksspyle bilene i 2 timer for f vekk det meste av saltet. Hper de ikke ruster.

Senere kjrte vi til Ely i Nevada. En liten og mindre sjarmerende by som inneholdt intet annet enn drlige kasinoer, men den meksikanske restauranten hadde god mat!

For spesielt interesserte vil Renault prve sette ny rekord for Renault 4 i anledning 50rs jubileumet. Lykke til! Se link: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150256950457863.340942.116825037862


I morgen vil vi trolig n Las Vegas!
