Our History

For over 50 years the word ‘Redline’ has been synonymous with ‘success’.

The Redline legacy began in the 1960s when the legendary record breaking Drag Racer Eddie ‘Big Daddy’ Thomas turned his passion into a business. The Eddie Thomas Speed Shop and the Speco Thomas brand of racing equipment was renowned for its quality and industry specialisation.

Eddie’s son – and current Redline Engineering Managing Director – Ken Thomas has continued the legacy claiming dual Australian national titles in speedcar racing in 1997/98 and 2000/01.

This drive, passion and high performance is what pumps through Redline’s engines each day and our business model is to aim high and achieve the best results.
