Albany first experienced motor racing in 1936 with the 'WA 50 Mile T.T. Car Race'. This was the first round the houses style race in Australia and was run over a 4 mile circuit through the town. The modern layout follows part of the revised 1938 Grand Prix circuit and is 1.5 km in length overlooking the picturesque Princess Royal Harbour.

The Albany Classic is the premier round the houses historic regularity event in Australia  and is one of only two events of its type still going today. The modern event is as much a festival as serious motorsport but now caters for the whole family and a diverse range of motoring interest. Crowds line the city streets to witness the enthralling sight of vintage and classic cars taking part in the annual motor event. This year, cars covering 87 years of motoring development are competing or on display.

We would like to recognise and thank the many local businesses, organisations and individuals responsible for the setup/breakdown and operation of the Albany Classic Round-the-Houses and in particular the track setup crews.   

They donate their machines and equipment and volunteer their labour to construct the track which includes moving over 500 concrete blocks and safety barriers in and out of the Albany CBD in a day.  The event simply would not happen without their assistance and we ask that you consider supporting these businesses during the year.
