Mean machines do battle in Weekend of Speed on Albany streets
Great Southern Street Machines Association held a successful Weekend of Speed across the long weekend — one of the first motorsport events run across Australia since the COVID-19 outbreak.
A total of 23 drivers took part in Saturday’s Wind Farm Hill Climb as drivers reached speeds of more than 150km/h on the windy Sand Patch Road.
Sticking to strict guidelines from Motorsport Australia, there were no crowds at Saturday’s hill climb and drivers were split into two groups when competing.
The fastest driver in the hill climb was John Webb in his Porsche 911 Carrera 3.0, setting a sizzling time of 48.40 seconds.
Rhyan Shapkaris and Neil Herbert also broke 50 seconds in the 1.6km hill climb, which included two sets of man-made chicanes.
On Monday, 26 drivers competed in the Battle of Pendeen Sprint, a 1.36km course around the Pendeen Industrial Estate.
There was also a virtual cars and coffee event held on Sunday.
