This is video footage of Phil Read's new Australian Top Fuel National Record which was reset to 4.563 seconds by the Jim Read Racing team at the 2008 Winternationals at Willowbank Raceway.
His historical Friday night qualifying run was the quickest time ever recorded in Australia by an Australian, and the 4.563 pass @ 320.28 mph was then backed up for the record in Saturday's eliminations where the team reset a new Aussie T/F National ET record when Phil ran 4.596 seconds at 317.13 mph.
The new record now set to 4.563 seconds broke the previous record which was held by American racer Scott Kalitta which he reset in 2006 to 4.565 seconds.
