Turbinator II at ACE 2018

‭Make sure to stop by the AAPG Center to see DPA’s presentation of the world’s fastest wheel-driven car and enter to win a Bonneville Salt Flats experience sponsored b Petroleum Systems international, Inc.

Team Vesco’s Turbinator II streamliner will be on display throughout the convention, part of DPA’s ACE theme of “Supercharge Your Career Join DPA.” And while your admiring the car, be sure to get information on DPA and how to join – and YPs, ask about the new Provisional Membership status. This new level of membership within DPA was established to help bridge the gap for those who have not yet met the experience required to pursue certification.

Partnered with the Save the Salt Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to protect the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah and to promote its history and motorsports legacy, Rick Vesco and his team will be available to answers any questions about the car and the foundation.

The Bonneville Salt Flats International Raceway (BSF) is the densely packed salt remnant of an ancient lake bed formed over thousands of years. Beyond its irreplaceable beauty, the flats possess rare physical qualities which make it a destination for land speed racing, filmmaking, rocketeers, and tourists from all over the world.

The 300, 400, 500, and 600 mph land speed record barriers were broken on its natural straightaway. Since 1914, automakers, speed equipment manufactures, and tire companies have used Bonneville as a testing laboratory for products we all rely on today. All this adds up to a rich land speed racing legacy including the world-famous annual Speed Week event. Bonneville has earned protected status that recognizes the importance of land speed racing as a compatible use.
