Special Guest Robyn Munro on the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast

New Zealander Burt Munro is a very famous motorcycle land speed racer, and was the subject of a film called the World’s Fastest Indian.  We recently had the pleasure of meeting Burt’s granddaughter Robyn Munro at the 2023 SCTA Speed Week at the Bonneville salt flats.  It was Robyn’s first time to the salt, and you could tell how much the experience moved her. Her next stop was to accept the Sturgis Hall of Fame induction for her legendary late grandfather Burt.     Recorded in the tech inspection lanes at the Wendover Airport.

The Story of Craig Breedlove Setting The World Land Speed Record in Sprit Of America Straight From 1963 on the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast

Back in 1963, Craig Breedlove famously set the world land speed record in the Spirit Of America, returning the title to the United States from Englishman John Cobb.  And although Breedlove went on to set more records and go much faster than the 428.37 speed he achieved that day, we thought it would be fun to tell the story straight from a first hand account written in the pages of a 1963 Sports Illustrated Magazine.    This is a great story, with quotes from Breedlove, and a historic vantage point from a very exciting time in land speed racing history.   We hope you dig it!   Hosted by Kevin Oeste.

Not many people can say they’ve set the record for piston-powered, wheel-driven streamliners, but not many people are Danny Thompson!   Coming from a rich racing heritage started by his famous father Mickey Thompson, Danny had the remarkable opportunity to race in a variety of forms and bring his dad’s vision to life… while setting records of his own.   Kevin Oeste chats with Danny about these and many more stories on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast.  We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we do!

2022 Speed Week or Speed Weekend? Views from New Zealand on the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast

The 2022 S.C.T.A. Bonneville Speed Week was unfortunately washed out from some big rains, but that didn’t mean land speed racers and enthusiasts didn’t get a chance to hang out.    We met Grant Potter and Dave Kelley, two gentlemen who came all the way from New Zealand for the event, and got their perspective on the sport, hot rodding, and the great people who make it all happen.     Recorded in the parking lot of the Copper Kettle restaurant in Wendover, Utah, shortly after 2022 Speed Week was cancelled.
