This article brought to you by:

Andrew Cowin has showed the Cowin Family Racing team will be a force to be reckoned with this season in Top Fuel, carding a 4.59 pass in testing at Willowbank.

The pass was even more remarkable given it was shut off at 1000 feet.

According to Andrew’s Twitter page, the first lap was a .855 to 60 feet and 2.18 to 330 feet, while the second saw the excellent quarter mile time.

Update: Cowin continued with testing today (18 August) at Willowbank with a best of 4.83 at only 243 MPH.

Update 2: Word has come through today that Andrew Cowin has impacted the wall at around 300ft, while not a serious impact for Andrew, the chassis is believed to be damaged significantly.

Cowin made the following comments via Twitter.

“Just had my first crash 🙁 it shook then i pedaled the gas and she got away from me and tagged the wall.”

“We’re loading up now and gonna get back to the shop & get our other hot rod ready for the Sydney test session.”
