Martin Stamatis 4.577 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) drag race
Western Australian Martin Stamatis became the fastest Australian drag racer
at the recent Sydney Summernationals on Saturday February 16 when he
blasted his Fastlane Software Jim Read Racing top fuel dragster to a top
speed of 329.10 mph (529.63 kmh) down the WSID quarter mile.
The fastest speed recorded by an Australian on Aussie soil was previously
held by his team mate, Phil Read who ran 329.02 mph (529.51 kmh) at the
2006 Boxing Day International Top Fuel Challenge.
Although the margin may be minimal to some, for Stamatis the speed was a
great personal achievement for him and his hard working team, and the 4.577
second ET from the run is also now only just behind Phil Read's personal
best of time 4.571 seconds, leaving the entire Read team really pumped.
Stamatis and his team then went on to win the meeting, and are now looking
forward to the next top fuel round due to be held in Sydney on May 2 and 3.
