New T Shirt honoring the Speed Records of Donald Healey at the Bonneville Salt Flats

Promotional advertisement of the Austin Healey 100 following the record run on the Bonneville Salt Flats in 1953 (under 3000cc class):  Average speed achieved by Donald Healey was 142.63 over the measured mile.

In August 1953 Donald Healey took his 100 sports car to the Bonneville Salt Flats. The aim: to smash as many speed records as possible. This was a well-planned, well-orchestrated Works undertaking that included Carroll Shelby in the driver line up. Over the course of a week record after record fell, and the British team returned home with 83 National and International speed records, including a 24 hour average speed of 132.29 mph and a variety of distance records from 200km to 5000km. The car was essentially the prototype 100S, the subsequent ‘production’ model incorporating many of the modifications developed for the salt flats.
