Lake Gairdner is a salt lake 160km long by 50km wide and is accessed by road 129kms north of Iron Knob.
The Speed Trials are held annually as long as there is no water around.

The DLRA hosts an amazing amount of bikes and cars of all ages from the 1920ís through to more modern vehicles. Apparently a guy on a twin-turbocharged postie bike did 111.476 mph.
Google Lake Gairdner or go to the DLRA website to view the photos and results.
