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 day.
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.
