    I ran my Porsche 9Electric on the Salt Flats! I didn't go very fast, but it was fun and much was learned. Look for a faster run in 2010. I'll challenge the Tesla guys to come out and run against me in September 2010.

    The 130 club is the only class that doesn't require a ton of safety gear. You have to exceed 130 mph to get into the 130 club, but aren't allowed to exceed 140 mph. Required safety gear, beyond standard car stuff, is a helmet, a firmly mounted fire extinguisher, and a roll bar for open top cars. Even if you don't go 130, you still get a speed slip and the fun of running as fast as you can.
