Honda CBR 600 and Suzuki GSXR 1000 Enter Speed Week at the Bonneville Salt Flats
Most racers who go faster than 130 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats can only hear the wind as the blinding white salt shines under their motorcycles. Speed Week 2008 is back in Utah.
Honda CBR 600 ready to go in the 650 class at Bonneville Salt Flats
K&N sponsored Team Falkner Livingston teamed up with Malcolm Smith Racing to drive as fast as they can along I-80 near the Nevada border. The Salt Flats are a natural race course that consists of sodium chloride and gypsum. In the winter the vast expanse floods and as the water evaporates the wind helps smooth the Salts.

Team FL Racer Paul Thede on the Salts
Livingston will race his Honda CBR 600 and Malcolm Smith Racing will bring identical 2008 Suzuki GSXR 1000s. “Malcolm and Alexander Smith are father and son,” said Livingston. “This will be their first time racing at Bonneville. We will help them get their bikes inspected and break them in on the Salts.
The adrenaline rush is part of racing on the hard smooth surface covered with salt granules. “Off- road riders seem to be more comfortable there because bikes tend to move around on the Salts,” said Livingston. “The surface is super smooth and slippery.”
Team Falkner Livingston uses K&N Engineering on its motorcycles. “K&N filters play an important part with making our bikes run well,” said Livingston. “We need to get as much air as possible into our engines and keep the granules and rocks away. K&N does its job, and that is why we rely on K&N air and oil filters.”
In 2007 Livingston qualified for the land speed record twice and pushed his 2007 GSXR 1000 at speeds of 180 mph.
