An 8-year-old girl is fighting for her life in Perth after she crashed her auto in a junior drag racing competition on Saturday. The young girl was injured during a junior event at the venue.

At the end of the run, she failed to stop and struck a cement barrier, police said.

The girl received life threatening injuries and was conveyed to Rockingham Hospital before being transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital.

Her father, Ian Board, told Perth Now Anita is receiving the best care possible. "We'd like to thank our family and friends and our motorsport family for the love and support".

The girl is believed to have lost control of her 210cc engine dragster before slamming into a wall at the Perth Motorplex at Kwinana Beach, reports the Daily Mail.

She remains in a critical condition.

"Our thoughts are with the driver and their family", the statement read.

Police would like to speak to anyone who was at the Motorplex who saw the crash or has vision of the crash.
