The Australian National Drag Racing Association is deeply saddened to confirm the passing of Junior Dragster competitor Anita Board following an on track incident during an event held at the Perth Motorplex on the 11th of November.

Everyone at the Australian National Drag Racing Association extends its sincere and deepest condolences to Anita’s family, friends and the wider drag racing community at this tragic time.

ANDRA will continue to work with VenuesWest and continue to assist police with their investigations while supporting Anita’s family, and ask that the privacy of the family is respected at this tragic time.

Eddie passed away earlier today at 99 years of age.

The founder of Redline Engineering, Thomas was widely regarded as a pioneer of the Top Fuel scene in Australia – he was not only the first into the tens, nines and eights, but also pioneered the use of parachutes and fire suits.

All at ANDRA are saddened to hear of Eddie’s passing, and send their commiserations to his family and friends at this time.
