World Speed Records.  History of Racing at Bonneville Salt Flats 

It is unknown exactly when the dangerous sport of chariot racing began, but It may have been as old as chariots themselves. Since the Roman Empire times, man has progressed his racing abilities and has raced everything in ever which way you can imagine. Count Gaston de Chasseloup-laubat was the first to a recorded land speed record in 1898 with an electric automobile. Today rocket powered cars and boats are the choice for land speed records.
