NOSTALGIA RETURNED TO NORTHAM'S STREETS
The Northam Motor Sport Festival 2020 was a victim of COVID-19, and we look forward to the 2021 event.
Sunday April 5th was the Northam Flying 50 with a full day of regularity events around the street circuit in the Northam CBD.
The two-day motor sport extravaganza had FREE entry to spectators and programs were available on site.
The events included sports cars, racing cars, historic touring cars and combinations of the three. Drivers and their vehicles enter from all over WA, with some competitors travelling from the east coast to make this a highly competitive event.
All the weekend activities were under the supervision of officials from Confederation of Australian Motor Sport. Spectators are asked to follow the instructions of race officials and track marshals at all times.
Organised by The Vintage Sports Car Club of W.A. Inc, with support from the Shire of Northam and the Sports Car Builders Club of WA, the event has been a popular draw-card since it was first run in 1999.
In conjunction with the Festival, there were car displays, street stalls, live band and a huge array of family entertainment.

Please note that a number of streets will be closed for the Sunday of this event, and as such, traffic through the centre of town will be disrupted. Crossings will be opened between races to allow pedestrian access and egress from Fitzgerald Street.
