It is with great sadness we report the passing of Top Fuel Bike racer Phil Parker.
His family were devastated to announce Phil passed away peacefully in the early hours on the morning on January 9th at St John of God hospital, succumbing to his fight with cancer.
Retiring from racing nearly two years ago to concentrate on his cancer battle, Phil has since been living life to the fullest touring the country side in his motor-home. His loss to the sport where he was highly regarded as a racer, ANDRA Divisional Director and ANDRA Director is immeasurable and will be sorely felt throughout the drag racing industry.
Phil's family have provided early funeral details as notice for those who wish to say their final goodbyes with it being held in Ballarat on the afternoon on Friday the 12th, further details will be posted when arrangements are finalised.
We send our deepest and sincere condolences to Phil's family and friends during this difficult time.
