The Santo Rapisarda team Funny Car fired its first shots in anger in 2010 with Allan Dobson in the hot seat.
The car made two attempts at passes with the first run striking the tyres at 60 feet while the second saw tyre shake affect the car. The Chev Monte Carlo-bodied machine is certainly looking the part.
Dobson said he was raring for another shot after some gremlins prevented the team running at their first test day.
“All these years I was brought up on Funny Cars, I feel like me again,” he said.
“Funny Cars make you pray to the gods, they take you to the next level. This thing is one scary mother f***er.”
