THE ALBANY CLASSIC MOTOR EVENT
For the past 26 years, a group of Albany residents, with assistance from The City of Albany (and its predecessor) and The Vintage Sports Car Club of WA (Inc), have presented the Albany Classic Motor Event around the streets of Albany. The event is, in the main, a commemoration of “Round-the-houses” motor racing which began in WA at Albany in 1936. Over the years this event has grown to reach “iconic” status, locally, nationally and internationally, and annually brings a flood of visitors to Albany on the June long weekend. Besides the benefits devolving directly from the visitors, many local charitable groups use their participation in the event to raise funds for their other activities in the Albany region.
