BAR will travel to the USA’s Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah next month, aiming to set an official Formula One land speed record.

Using a slightly modified, but still track legal, version of this year’s 007 machine, Alan van der Merwe, a member of BAR’s Young Driver Programme, will attempt to break the 400 km/h mark.

The record attempt will take place between October 4 and 11. The team are already proudly displaying ‘Bonneville 400’ logos on their cars at Monza.
