OK, it's January. It's hard to conceive there is a salt flat. Only go in the summer. I saw three cars there a MB, Porsche and my junker.

Every gearhead should visit the flats at least once in his/her life! This is the Walhalla of speed and once the races are on the whole area breaths adrenaline and with the nearby town of Wendover trensfers into one big paddock of hot rods, race cars and their teams. Even though your not racing yourself, you feel closely connected to... More

It is just 1 hour and half from Salt Lake, very pleasant dirve, awesome panoramas. There is really nothing particular there apart from this out of space panorama. The salt crust is very thick and so white, with the blue, sky pics were really amazing. I would definitely recoment a brief visit, just to quickly see something so unique and... More

I have attended Speed Week a few times! It's a beautiful setting and one of the most exciting events in the world! The Salt Flats Cafe is second to none when it comes to Mexican food!! If you like fast cars it is an experience of a lifetime!!

Went there a week before Thanksgiving.. Was totally deserted.. That is what made it more awesome. The place looks like a scene from a sci-fi movie! Going there again very soon! :)

This place was like no other. A completely different experience. Don't expect it to be a tourist place with souvenir shops, a McD and a Starbucks. There are absolutely no facilities at this place, infact we did not see another soul. Its just plain white slat flats for miles and miles. Its remote, deserted, peaceful and extremely beautiful. Great photo... More

Off course racing has been vanishing worldwide. The California dry lakes, the beach at Daytona and the Salt Flats were all places high speed records were made. The Salt Flats were/are the best. At times the pumping of mineral laden water has lowered the water table and restricted the area that could be run on. Sometimes that or weather leave... More

This was the third time I'd driven close enough to visit the Salt Flats, and I finally got up there. The signage doesn't help much, but I eventually found the entry, which was a paved roadway intended to take me past the areas too fragile for regular vehicles. At the end of this roadway, I reached a large sign that... More
