About this title


Nowhere else have so many land speed records been set as at the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah. Each year, devoted gearheads and adrenaline junkies from around the world gather to add their names to the hall of fame with their hot rods, roadsters, motorcycles, and belly tankers.

German photographer Alexandra Lier visited the famous Speed Week at Bonneville for the first time in 1999 and has returned annually ever since. In this book she documents the fanatically passionate culture of speed record chasers, the drivers, and their beautiful vehicles, set in the amazing landscape of the Utah salt flats.


About the Author:

Alexandra Lier (b. 1971 in Frankfurt, Germany) visited the famous Speed Week at Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah, for the first time in 1999. Immediately, a lasting obsession with fast cars, hot rods, and customs was born. She has returned annually ever since, taking photographs, honing her own skills at burning rubber with the best of them, and becoming a member of the salt community” herself.
Alexandra Lier has a professional background in marketing and is an award-winning art director and designer. She received her photography education at the Frankfurt Academy of Communicatin and Design. Living in Hamburg, Germany, she was a member of the girl Punk rock band Twiggy Killers and has recently picked up playing guitar for the band Clara Bow.

Kevin Robert Thomson, a photographer, author, and musician, is a gearhead himself. He has published widely in books, magazines, and underground publications on the hot rod scene.
