Tony Baker
We are very sorry to report that UK Jet Funny Car pilot Tony Baker has died. Tony was recently best-known for piloting Martin Hills Jet FC, one of the most popular
exhibition vehicles in Europe, to six-second passes at over 230 mph. But his rides over the years also
included an Outlaw Anglia and a Top Methanol Funny Car both named attended to by
a loyal crew known as the Bakerlites. In our experience Tony was a quiet yet very friendly guy, ready to smile and always ready to talk to fans
in the pits about the Jet FC. Tony also had that calm quality peculiar to Jet pilots: last November
he showed everyone just how unflappable he was when his first action after climbing out of the burning
was to go and have a cigarette. We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Tony's family and friends and we're sure that all
of our readers will want to do the same. We will publish a fuller tribute in due course but if you would like to send your own thoughts then
drop us a line at eurodragster.com@btinternet.com</a and we will publish them here
