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 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.
