Motorcar racing has taken place at the Bonneville salt flats in Utah since 1914, but for three years between 1953 and 1955, one die-hard fan attended the races to capture the surreal scenes like never before– in brilliant Kodachrome colour. Don Palmer only published a few of the photos and most of his snaps have sat in his personal collection until only recently surfacing on the net.
Surrounded by these incredible speed machines in such vivid colour against the bright white backdrop of the salt flats, through Don’s photos you can really feel what a fantastic day out this was for car lovers and spectators alike. Memories to keep forever.
