The performance took place on the Bonneville salt flats (Utah, USA) under the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) regulation. Timing has been done on 1 mile ran in both directions at one hour intervals. Built in the first half of 2013, this 3rd generation of Venturi VBB could have run in September 2013. Severe weather that hit Utah 3 years in a row led to the cancellation of record attempts.
