Martin Stamatis Top Fuel engine blow-up incar cam 01.02.2008
Youtube feature video - Martin Stamatis Top Fuel engine blow-up 01.02.2008, in car camera footage. This is what is was like for Martin Stamatis on Friday night qualifying in Top Fuel at the Perth Motorplex Stamatis was on a flying number when the engine blew up creating a spectacular fire ball. So keep an eye out on Channel 9 for the Speed Machine TV show which shows externally what the incident looked like. The team rebuilt the dragster and burned the midnight oil to make sure the car was fresh and ready for the next day of racing. I think Speed Machine is being shown on Channel 9 this coming Saturday or Sunday, February 9 or 10. Check local guides for details.

Martin Stamatis' top fueller 4.577@329.10 mph in-car video
Martin Stamatis and his Read racing top fuel dragster team ran their personal best time at Western Sydney International Dragway (WSID) recently at the 2008 Summernationals held over February 15 and 16. After qualifying third in the strong ten-car field with a 4.616@312.86 mph (503 kmh), Stamatis knocked out Terry Sainty in the first round with a 5.00, which left him up against Darren Morgan for the second round. With a feeling of déjà vu after having Morgan knock him out in the second round held in Perth just two weeks prior, the team were pumped to try and level the score, and with conditions perfect for drag racing, it was Stamatis this time who won with a fabulous 4.577@329.10 mph (529 kmh) blast, which was also low ET and top speed for the event. The run cemented Stamatis a final round appearance, and the team tried to back up their awesome 4.57 run for a new national record in the final, however the blower belt unfortunately came off on their last pass, but their 4.80 was still good enough to win the event. After running the 4.57, Stamatis commented in a post run interview that at half track, he was wondering what on earth "Cav" (Robert Cavagnino, his Crew Chief) was doing to him as the car hauled its way to nearly 530 kmh! Well done to the entire Stamatis team, to Read racing for providing a great car, and to WSID for yet another great memorable pass in Australian drag racing history.
