One Weekend In November - Top Fuel Drag Racing - FullHD
A short film I shot a week ago at the ANDRA Nationals in Sydney, Australia. My ode to drag racing. Please watch on big screen in Full HD, volume up, lights down. Thanks to EMI for allowing use of Pink Floyd. Slo-mo shots (200 and 800fps) all taken at the Nationals with the Sony FS700 and the timelapse and onboards shot at various events 2010-2011 in Sydney and Perth. If you like this video, please LIKE it, SHARE it, and add a comment. Aussie pro-series drag racers, please leave a comment if you see yourself. Thanks to competitors, ANDRA and Sydney Dragway. Have you ever seen so much tyre shake?!
ANDRA Drag Racing - Top Fuel, only the strongest will survive
When the first 1000 feet race hit Australia, at a track that hadn't seen
Top Fuel racing for over a decade, it was the makings of an awesome nitro
battle. It was a driver's race, where sharp reaction times and even sharper
pedalling would pay off and only the strongest will survive.
Sand Drags - Dome Valley Raceway
www.EnjoyTheDrive.com - 18 miles due West of Yuma, Arizona lies Dome Valley
Raceway, one of the premier sand drag racing facilities in the United
States. Our crew headed down to Dome Valley to check out the kickoff to
the 2013 sand drag racing season with the 4th Annual Top Fuel Shootout.
Despite a rare rainfall, the event went on as planned and featured some
intense competition for the drivers, race teams and fans in attendance.
Dome Valley Raceway is a spectator friendly track, and if you've never
attended a sand drag event, you should make plans to check one out. You'll
have a blast.
Top Fuel @ Calder Park ~ FUCHS Nitro Thunder
In front of over 7000 Melbourne race fans, the ANDRA Drag Racing Series
marked its return after 12 years away from Australia's sporting capital
with thrilling action across three ANDRA pro categories.
Morgan defeated event debutante John Lamattina in a close fought final with
Morgan's 4.322 narrowly defeating a 4.556 from Lamattina.
Morgan paid credit to his crew for their efforts not just at Fuchs Nitro
Thunder presented by Crow Cams but across the whole season.
"This crew has been amazing not just today but every time they go to work
on this car," he said. "(Crew chief) Ben Patterson took a bit of a stab at
the tune up today after we had an ignition shut off on one run and then a
seized fuel pump in a warm up and sure enough it went down there -- he got
it right and to do that twice in one day is full credit to him.
"In the run before the final I was on the hand brake trying to keep
traction so Ben calmed it down for the final and it sailed on through."
Morgan defeated chief championship rival Phil Lamattina in the first
elimination round and with 74 points now separating the pair, qualifying
fifth or better at the Australian Nationals at Sydney Dragway in two weeks
would mean Morgan wraps up his fourth Top Fuel title.
"Championship wise it is what it is, we take the punches as we swing them,"
FUCHS Nitro Thunder, Calder Park, Australia October 19th 2013
