Eight-year-old Perth girl dies after drag race crash

A Perth family is mourning the death of an eight-year-old drag racer who crashed while trying to get her racing licence just days after becoming old enough to compete.

The eight year old girl reportedly comes from an experienced local drag racing family.

She had her own purple dragster, with the words "Pony Power" on the sides and a picture of the Rainbow Dash character from My Little Pony.

Her father Ian posted a photo of both his daughters in a vehicle, saying: "Our angel setting [out] on what was meant to be [a] day to remember for all the right reasons". We know the racing family are the best bunch ever.

ANDRA said it was "deeply saddened" at Anita's passing and said her family was in its thoughts and prayers.

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

"96km/hour seems an extraordinary speed to me, I think that would strike anyone as an extraordinary speed for an eight year old to be doing", Mr Cook said.

Even after racing into a 40-0 lead in the fifth game, Sock was taken to deuce before finally fending off the threat. That was the only break point for either player in the first set.

The siblings were among 26 entrants for the Goldenstates Junior Dragster event.

"ANDRA regulations for junior competition are benchmarked against similar organisations internationally".

A Broad family Facebook page dedicated to racing was flooded with messages of support for the family in the aftermath of the crash.

Anita Board has been identified as the girl injured in the crash.

Another said: "We did not stop thinking of you all night".

Racing at Perth was halted for more than two hours as medical personnel tended to Board and Police conducted their investigation.

Police said they were investigating the cause of the accident.
