While some of us possess an innate and fierce sense of competition, a rare few use more extreme activities to demonstrate such spirit in action at places like Bonneville, where racing enthusiasts have been traversing the Salt Flats for over 100 years. While most of us may be more familiar with conventional, brightly decorated racecars speeding down the pavement of circuits around the globe, Bonneville offers a unique racing environment on the dry plains of Utah, near the Nevada border.
Those hoping to drive at Bonneville don’t need millions of dollars to get involved, but they do need a vehicle designed for high performance and speed. This requires some resourcefulness in engineering and production, along with the ability to try new techniques and new technology. 3D printing is a perfect fit for those designing automotive parts, as it offers self-sustainability in creation and production, speed in making prototypes and parts, and, best of all, quality combined with affordability.
