The 2018 Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races will honor 60 years of the intrepid Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite (introduced in 1958) and Porsche which in 2018 will be celebrating 70 years of building some of the most desirable cars ever conceived.  Strong turnouts for racing and road-going examples of both marques are anticipated as well the usual array of vintage sports cars such as Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Austin Mini, MG, Lotus, Morgan, Triumph and others plus a growing gaggle of vintage open wheel cars.

The 10th Annual 2018 Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion Featuring Two Days of Racing on the Put-In-Bay Airport.

Much more than just a vintage race, the Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion and Sports Car Races also welcomes owner-drivers of non-racing, vintage sports cars of types similar to the race cars.

These "street cars" participate in all the various events and activities, except the actual races.  

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 controlled laps and airport-track lapping, self conducted island rally, 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.
