First run way back in 1936 the Albany Classic is set to run again this weekend (June 4-5) and is set to include plenty of Australian muscle cars.

Attracting plenty of other vintage and classic cars too, the Albany Classic is a must for any series petrolhead. The event has a unique format, with the Mt Clarence Hill Cimb running on Saturday before the ‘Around the Houses’ runs on Sunday. 

The latter will see the field of cars take turns racing around a short street circuit in downtown Albany.

In addition to the competitive running there will also be static car displays, entertainment and more, so it should keep the entire family entertained.

The event has a fantastic history, with the first ‘race around the houses’ in 1936 attracting a field of nine cars for the 25-lap race. More than 10,000 spectators showed up for the first race and it has been a popular addition to the WA automotive calendar since.

Despite having to cancel the 2020 event due to the pandemic it returned for 2021 and is ready to run again this weekend.
