Formally known as the Vintage-on-Avon, the Northam Flying Fifty is a two-day event and is traditionally held in March or April each year. The event encompasses a hill climb at Mt Ommanney on Saturday with the 'round the houses' re-enactment on Sunday.  The Town of Northam hosted the first of five 'round the houses' races in 1952 with the first races being run over a 2.2 mile (3.5 km) circuit south of the town. In later years a second circuit was laid out north of the town centre.  In 1999, the VSCC and Town of Northam joined forces to re-create 'round the houses' racing.  Extensive support from the Shire of Northam and the local business community allows for the centre of Northam to be closed to regular traffic during the event.  

Hundreds of volunteers transform the streets into a fast, but safe street circuit that offers some of the countries best spectator viewing.

Proudly hosted by The Shire of Northam the 2014 Flying 50 is action packed with historic and modern motor competition and car displays all weekend plus a Free Family Fun Zone in the main street on Sunday. With so much to see and do, Northam is the place to be on the weekend!

Conducted by the Vintage Sports Car Club of WA the weekend kicks off at 9.00 am on Saturday at the fast and exciting Mt Ommanney Hill Climb a Smoke Free event with single cars racing up the hill. 

Sunday sees the streets transformed for the “around the houses” regularity competitions, the Northam Flying 50, 21 events featuring about 100 historic and classic racing and sports cars, starting at 10.00 am and winding up at 4.30 pm.

Another major attraction is the appearance of former V8 Ute Racing Champion, Mr Grant Johnson who will be competing in both the Hillclimb and the Round the Houses circuit.  There is a huge Car Clubs Display in Bernard Park on Sunday, and Demonstration laps from the juniors at the Hurricane Go Kart Club.

Bring the whole family, because away from the cars will be open shops, cafe's and eateries plus the Family Fun Zone in the Fitzgerald Street Mall.  Wow what a couple of days of action adrenalin packed fun and excitement for everyone.

Northam offers a range of affordable accommodation from Bed and Breakfasts, charming old Pubs and Hotels, a caravan park and a motel, all of which make the perfect base to explore Northam and the wider Avon Valley.
