This is footage I color graded for a Discovery Channel series called "Need For Speed". This footage is about the drag races at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
The Buckeye Bullet 2 is the first ever hydrogen fuel powered race car. The Buckeye Bullet is the name of a series of student-built, alternative-fuel race cars created by The Ohio State University students led by Dr. Giorgio Rizzoni at the Center for Automotive Research. The cars are designed to run on the world-famous Bonneville Speedway, just outside of Wendover, Utah.
The Buckeye Bullet 2 ran for the first time at Speedweek 2007 and recorded a top speed of 223.334 mph (359.421 km/h). At Speedweek 2008, the BB2 eclipsed its previous mark by reaching 286.476 mph (461.038 km/h), the highest speed ever recorded by a hydrogen/fuel cell vehicle. On September 25, 2009, the Buckeye Bullet 2 set international land speed records both at 303.025 mph (487.672 km/h) in the flying kilometer and 302.877 mph (487.433 km/h) in the flying mile.
