500 km/h in a race at willowbank

just heard about it on the news. i think the run was 315 MPH and 3 second +

ill try to find out more info.

well it was a 4 second pass
taken from here

Last night the first side by side 4 second pass was run at Willowbank Raceway by Andrew Cowin and Jim Read. Andrew Cowin ran a best ever top fuel time in Australia with a 4.75 at 314MPH, and Jim Read ran a 4.90 at 295MPH. If you missed the run you can still see it, just click here and it will play an online movie of the event from Saturday night. Congratulations to Andrew, Jim and to there crews.
