A month ago the Bonneville Speed Week event was cancelled, last week the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials were back on with ‘a tentative go’ – this week the latest news from the salty land is that everything is finally off. After loads of to-ing and fro-ing there will now not be any motorcycle speed records at Bonneville this year.

Condition on the salt it too blame for the third and final stage of this organisational up-and-down. The surface of the former lake bed has been made too wet because of recent wet weather and Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Trials officials can’t find a suitable place to relocate the Mountain Course, the Long Course also can’t be run.


So there we are. First it’s off, then on, then off for this year. And hopefully we’ll not get any more news from optimistic people involved giving things a ‘go’. Bonneville is cancelled – again.
