Former ANDRA Top Fuel Champion, Phil Lamattina, has vowed 2014 will be the year he reclaims the Top Fuel title as the Fuchs-powered team prepare for the season-opening Nitro Max at Perth Motorplex on January 10-11.

“We want it bad, that’s for sure,” said the Wemen-based carrot farmer.

“The team has left no stone unturned for this season, we have one goal – ANDRA gold!

“I will be racing a new chassis that should be both quicker and more comfortable. Over the last two seasons we have been the fastest car in the field most of the time but we haven’t been able to win the races that we needed to win. This year we are looking to be both fast and consistent.”

Fuchs Lubricants Australasia has again joined the team for a record tenth consecutive year.

“We have great continuity – same driver, same crew, same sponsors – we need to make sure we go one better,” concluded Lamattina, referring to his runner up position in last year’s title race.

LTFR crew chief Aaron Hambridge is also confident of some great results this season.

“Last year we won both rounds in Perth, so we would love to the same to start of this season. However, it’s not going to be easy, it is a relatively small field but the quality of the cars is higher than ever.

“We have some great data and we are going to use everything to try and achieve the very best we can at the (Perth) Motorplex.”
