Default Photos at the salt flats on 10/14?

Hi guys,
I am prob going to head out to the salt flats on october 14th (assuming the weather is OK) to try and snap some car shots out there. If anybody wants to join, it would be awesome so I could get some rolling shots out there. I would probably go during the day... possibly very early in the morning. LMK.

Sorry.... but no.

I went out there about this time last year (so it was actually 11/08 judging by the photos that were taken), and let me tell you from my experience it was NOT fun at all. We had two cars stuck, a Tooele police officer sat and watched us for an hour or so and offered to call a Cat to come pull us out. My buddy came down from Ogden at like midnight and got his truck stuck twice trying to pull my MR2 out, which was sunk up to oil pan.





Salt + Water = worse than mud.

It was fun for the first hour or so until we veered off track. Not to mention the 3 hours I spent the next day cleaning off every inch of the car to prevent it from becoming a rust bucket.

I know the salt flats by Wendover are pretty soft right now, I went out to them on my way home from SLC. I am not sure I would chance it.

This was in September and it was soft then.

The world finals are out on the salt. I would assume if they are racing they will have the salt in pretty good condition. So unless it rains it should still be good on Wednesday. I'm going out this Friday to watch, I'll give an update when I get back. If you've never seen a car going 300+ mph out on the salt I would highly recommend it. It's crazy!

Thanks for the info; any help would be appreciated as I don't want to be out there when it is wet.

I picked Wednesday because I have to be in Denver again on friday night... And I have a friend in grand junction I want to hang with on my way back. Also, I won't be back in slc area until Tuesday night.

Default Salt condition

Yesterday was a perfect day on the salt. If you go out there just stay where you can clearly see that it has been groomed for lack of a better word. I went out about 5 miles yesterday. There was several big rigs as well as motor homes out there. Top speed we seen yesterday was a streamliner going 386 mph.
