Watch this now- Speed Dreams: The Fastest Place On Earth

I may be an eco-worrier, but I also have a love of interesting cars. Sadly, most motoring television is fixated with dull penis replacements which cost more than a house (I’m looking at you Top Gear). So it was nice to see a two part documentary on Bonneville Speed Week. The first episode has probably dropped off iPlayer by now, but Jalopy Journal has found it on YouTube and embedded it.

Any one of the cars which makes it out to the salt flats is more interesting than all the supercars being drooled over by Clarkson and co.. We need to see more of this sort of stuff on the telly, so I’ll give a nod to Fast ‘n Loud on Discovery- two men with awesome beards rescue old cars, customise them and try to turn a profit.
