The Australian National Drag Racing Association Ltd, or ANDRA for short, is the drag racing sanctioning body of Australia.
The organization was created in 1973 from a more drag racing oriented faction of the Australian Hot Rod Federation.
Today ANDRA sanctions races throughout Australia and throughout the year at all levels, from Top Fuel to Junior Dragster, on everything from temporary regional tracks to international standard facilities in capital cities.
ANDRA and its members make drag racing a family friendly, safe sport. So come along as a spectator or bring your street car to an “off street” event and enjoy the excitement that is Australian drag racing.
