Top Fuel Dragster Helmet Cam - Phil Read

Phil Read Elimination round 1 at Perth Motorplex, January 29th 2011. Helmet cam view of Phil's pass. $800 worth of Nitro Methane gone in 2 minutes. Supercharger blows off and yet another fireball in the second half of the pass. Car still ran 4.90, but had more speed at half track than at the finish. Next pass was more steady and much faster - 311mph (501kph) in a virtual dead heat with Phil Lamattina. 4.806 vs 4.808. TOP FUEL is something you HAVE to experience first-hand at some stage in your life, even if just once. And if you like this clip, you'll love this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdtQ1dI-bJk
