Put-In-Bay Road Races Reunion on Facebook
The 9th Annual 2017 PIB Road Races Reunion Featuring Two Days of Racing On Improved and Expanded Put-In-Bay Airport
Much more than just a vintage race, the Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion also welcomes owner-drivers of non-racing vintage sports cars of all types to come and participate in various events and activities.
Beginning with a small event in 2009, the Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion celebrates sports car races that were held on the streets of the town of Put-in-Bay on Ohio’s South Bass Island from 1952 to 1959 and in 1963. The steadily growing, three-day reunion engages racers and non-racers alike in an event that reaches back in time to capture the history and re-create the atmosphere of sports car racing of that era in a uniquely beautiful setting. So book-ended around two days of Vintage sports car racing at the island’s airport, is a balanced mix of events honoring the island’s racing history, a few social gatherings, a car show, original course and airport-track touring, self conducted island rallye, rocker cover races and plenty of unstructured time as well.
Put-in-Bay is a nostalgic island enclave and a short ferry ride off the shore of Lake Erie near Sandusky, Ohio. A summer resort community little changed from the ‘50s, it is one of the very few places in North America where post-war sports cars raced through towns and countryside on public roads and where those roads exist today virtually unchanged.
