The Board of the Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd announced today the retirement of its long serving Chief Executive Officer Tony Thornton.

A former national record holder and Divisional Director in South Australia Tony was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of ANDRA in 1988. At the time of his appointment ANDRA was in a very difficult position and Tony led the revival of the sport and the development of ANDRA to be one of Australia’s most respected governing bodies of motor sport.

Since the early 90’s Tony has represented ANDRA internationally as a Foundation member of the FIA Drag Racing Commission.

ANDRA Chairman Simon Pinnock said “Tony has been a stalwart of the drag racing industry for over 25 years and the sport owes him a debt of gratitude for his valuable contribution and service.”

The Board on behalf of ANDRA members would like to express its thanks and gratitude to Tony and wish him well in his well deserved retirement.
