Mark Sheehan nitro funny car licensing explosion 12.03.2008
Mark Sheehan and his team were out trying to get the final stages of their
nitro funny car licensing completed today at the Perth Motorplex.
On the first pass for the day, the car smoked the tyres almost instantly,
then some fine adjustments were made to try and cater for the hot
conditions for the second pass.
The car looked to be on a great run this time around getting to the 60'
with a .972 short time, followed by a lift before the 330' in 2.59, but
when Sheehan had a pedal and got back onto it, then KABOOM!
The Mustang body totally
blew off the chassis and into the air and lifted the back end of car at
least a metre off the ground before a second bounce lifted it up and away
again. Then with some great steering, Sheehan managed to tame his ride back
to earth, and thankfully escaped the terrifying incident unharmed.
We wish Sheehan and his team all the best for their next nitro outing.

Martin Stamatis' top fueller firstname.lastname@example.org mph in-car video
Martin Stamatis and his Read racing top fuel dragster team ran their
personal best time at Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID) recently
at the 2008 Summernationals held over February 15 and 16.
After qualifying third in the strong ten-car field with a email@example.com mph
(503 kmh), Stamatis knocked out Terry Sainty in the first round with a
5.00, which left him up against Darren Morgan for the second round.
With a feeling of déjà vu after having Morgan knock him out in the second
round held in Perth just two weeks prior, the team were pumped to try and
level the score, and with conditions perfect for drag racing, it was
Stamatis this time who won with a fabulous firstname.lastname@example.org mph (529 kmh)
blast, which was also low ET and top speed for the event.
The run cemented Stamatis a final round appearance, and the team tried to
back up their awesome 4.57 run for a new national record in the final,
however the blower belt unfortunately came off on their last pass, but
their 4.80 was still good enough to win the event.
After running the 4.57, Stamatis commented in a post run interview that at
half track, he was wondering what on earth "Cav" (Robert Cavagnino, his
Crew Chief) was doing to him as the car hauled its way to nearly 530 kmh!
Well done to the entire Stamatis team, to Read racing for providing a great
car, and to WSID for yet another great memorable pass in Australian drag
TERRY SAINTY 4.87 SECOND DRAG RACE
ON THE 28th JANUARY 2005, THE SAINTY FAMILY CREATED TOP FUEL DRAG RACING
HISTORY WHEN THEY RAN THIS AWESOME 4-SECOND PASS WITH THEIR SELF BUILT DRAG
RACER. THE UNIQUE INGREDIENT ABOUT THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS CAR IS THAT IT
WAS ENTIRELY BUILT IN AUSTRALIA, BY AUSTRALIANS. WITH THOUSANDS UPON
THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF LABOUR, THE UNIQUE 6000 horsepower SAINTY 3 VALVE
ENGINE WAS DEVELOPED BY THE SAINTY FAMILY IN THEIR ENGINEERING WORKSHOP IN
SYDNEY, AND NEARLY EVERY COMPONENT OF THIS VEHICLE WAS PERSONALLY HAND
BUILT. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME MONUMENTAL MOMENTS IN AUSTRALIAN DRAG RACING,
BUT FOR ME, THIS WAS ONE OF THE FINEST. A TRULY PATRIOITC TEAM TOTALLY
DEDICATED TO THEIR PASSION FOR RACING ON NITRO, THE SAINTY'S GOT ONE OF THE
BIGGEST CHEERS I HAVE EVER HEARD FROM THE VERY SUPOPORTIVE PERTH MOTORPLEX
FANS...ELAPSED TIME: 4.87 SECONDS, SPEED: 297 mph (478 kmh).
