Lamattina Aims To Turn Podium Blue
Article Date: 6 June 2013
ANDRA Top Fuel pilot Phil Lamattina has vowed his team will leave no stone unturned in the effort to win the FUCHS Winternationals event for the long time sponsor of the LTFR Top Fuel car.
“FUCHS are simply the best sponsor that we as a team could have on the side of our race car,” explained Lamattina.
“Their involvement in drag racing has seen them sponsor the best event on the calendar and although any win is sweet, to take home Winternationals Gold is just that bit sweeter.”
Some tune-up changes have given the team a new level of confidence heading into the Queensland round.
“We have sorted the clutch area and we are ready to go racing. I have told Aaron (Hambridge, LTFR Crew Chief), it’s time to get aggressive. We want to be consistent and fast. That’s what it will take,” added the former national champion.
Lamattina is looking forward to returning to the iconic Queensland venue.
“Last year, we drove through the gates and Willowbank Raceway was a sea of FUCHS’ blue and I imagine it will be the same this year.
“The venue looked fantastic and the track was just perfect, all we have to do is add a bit of FUCHS’ blue to the trophy presentations. And it will be perfect.”
The Fuchs Winternationals will be held at Willowbank Raceway, Queensland from June 7-10.
