BONNEVILLE: WHAT WE’D TAKE
KEITH ADAMS EDITOR
Given how hot it gets there, as long as it has air conditioning, I don’t mind. Something British, too. And with a high top speed. Does the McLaren F1 have air-con?
JAMES SADLIER MANAGING EDITOR
I’d take a 1982 Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am so I could emulate my hero and style icon Michael Knight of fame. Now, where’s my black leather jacket?
Knight Rider GERVAIS SEYMOUR PRODUCTION EDITOR
I’d take a Citroën H mobile fish and chip van and maximise profits by not having to purchase salt. I’d scoop it up from the flats instead.
DAVID BROWN ASSOCIATE EDITOR
A Volkswagen T1 bus with original reduction boxes and suspension got up to 109mph at Bonneville in 2012 – the first to top the ton there.
DAVID SIMISTER FEATURES EDITOR
Vincent Black Shadow. Yes I know it’s a motorcycle but if you Google ‘Rollie Free’ you’ll see the only attire suitable for riding one at Bonneville. I’ll get my Speedos.
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR
I’m infatuated with rotary engines at the moment so maybe a NSU Ro80. Or failing that, a Mazda 787B.
CALUM BROWN WEB PRODUCER
If it was on company expenses, I’d take my car and claim the mileage.
