Larry Ormsby book

In a must-have for all Drag Racing and Muscle Car fans, legendary Australian drag racer, the Big O, Larry Ormsby has just released a stunning, limited edition book detailing the early years of his incredible career.

Titled “The Larry Ormsby Scrapbook – The Ford Years,” this new book documents an exciting, bygone era in racing when the ‘Win on Sunday. Sell on Monday’ mantra ruled the sales strategies of major car companies.


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.
