The BLCC was founded in 1953 with its sole objectives to run events for enthusiasts of Motorsports at the famous Mt Panorama Circuit , Bathurst NSW. The Flying Fifth event was established as a sprint event even in the old configuration before the bends were added to the straight. With the evolution of the track came the evolution of the event. On the new circuit you have a 500m run up, and then your average speed is taken over the following 320m. Highest average speed wins! with multiple classes.
The return of the Georges Prestige Flying Fifth Race Event in 2019 saw records broken and a passion rebuilt to have cars of all types and classes race across the fastest straight in Motorsports in Australia.
