The Weekender Albany Classic weekend is a family friendly event with activities to satisfy everybody who comes along - we know it's not just about the cars. This event is traditionally held over the June long weekend each year.
Day 1 Saturday
The Mt Clarence lookout hosts a fast and exciting hill climb event that attracts big fields of entrants in a wide range of vehicles.This is an "all out" speed test with historic cars timed for a run up the hill, starting about 9:00. The cars can be seen up close in the pit area.
Day 2 Sunday
The centre of Albany is converted to a motorsport circuit complete with Armco barriers and a state of the art timing system. Everything from pre war specials with wooden or wire spoke wheels to mighty Aussie V8's. See British and Italian sports cars, exotic open wheeler racers from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, touring cars from Morris minor to Ford Falcon and a list of other wonderful machinery dating back to the 1920s!
