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).

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.
