Mark Sheehan's Nitro Funny Car test day 23.12.2007
This is Mark Sheehan's Nitro Funny Car licensing debut taken on the 23rd
December at the Perth Motorplex. On the car's first 60-foot shut-off
launch, all went well with an impressive .94 short time on the sizzling hot
120-degree track. On the second launch for the day (which was meant to be a
330 foot shut-off) the head gaskets blew, and so the team packed up for the
The car has a Victory chassis, and was originally built for John Force as a
spare chassis for his team, but was never used. When the Sheehan team
acquired this chassis, it was used and built as a small block Alcohol
Altered, and ran as quick as 5.69 seconds on both sides of Australia. The
Victory chassis was then reworked, and a great deal of effort was put into
building the parts and components that were required to convert the car
onto nitro, which was all done locally in Perth by the many people who
helped bring the dream together to make it the reality which it is today.
When the Sheehan team made the switch over onto nitromethane with the
chassis, it was mated up with an ex John Force 2003 Castrol Syntec Mustang Funny Car body, which was
used by Tony Pedregon to win the 2003 NHRA World Championship.
The main engine components on the car were purchased from Bill Miller in
America including engine blocks, cranks and manifolds, while the cylinder
heads and the rest of the other parts came from the John Force Racing
stables. The engine combination will produce between 7000 and 8000 horsepower once it is all
sorted, and should be capable of propelling Sheehan to 4-second ET's at
over 300 mph.
Mark and Sharon would like to thank all of the people and sponsors who have
been involved with helping the car to get in it's first laps including Red
Line Oil, Dimoff Transmissions, Beau's Haulage, WA Racecar Fibreglass, Rory
Taylor from Speed Torque, Ian Jenkins from JPP, Jay Upton, Bill Miller, the
Perth Motorplex, and of course all of the happy crew.
Future licensing procedures for the team are now planned for January 2008.
