It's our birthday, and you are invited !  This year, Waterford Hills turns 60 years old.  Big deal you say?  Well, we are not throwing just one party, we are throwing two!.  This year is "party part 1".  Things that turn 60 ,-  Like the Bug Eye Sprite, the Volvo PV series, and even some people we know.  Along with all that comes this years call for - The Reunion!  All past Vintage event attendees will receive a special surprise for returning to this years event.   Also new this year, volunteers now sign up online on Motorsportsreg as well.( Note Flagging and Communications has their own sign up page.)  Special races will be added for all Austin Healey ( yes we include MG Midgets as space allows, preference given to AH Sprites )  and an all Volvo race.  Both races require a car count minimum. Both races will be no extra fee once added to the program later.    The Austin Healey Sprite is our featured race marque , The Volvo PV-544 and PV-444 are our social featured marque.    

This year also welcomes the first annual Waterford Hills / Put-In-Bay challenge. A team points challenge just for the fun of it.      

Those with a keen eye, will notice we STILL did not raise entry prices. In fact, we lowered early entry fees!  Take advantage of it please.    Also important to note, and unique to the Waterford Hills Vintage Races,  Competitors are not charged you until you arrive at registration.  Motorsportreg requires a credit card on file for website participants, but your card is not charged until you arrive in person for registration.  This may be the last time we offer this consideration. 

For updates or questions, you may contact the event chair.  Also stay in touch on our Facebook page,  and NEW THIS YEAR, our own forum section on the Waterford Hills website. 

Now, you may be curious, what is part 2?  Well, 2019 of course!    With high hopes that our track may be re-paved at this point, Party number two will celebrate 60 years of wheel to wheel racing at Waterford and with prayers answered a new track surface.  Our first race was October of 1959.  Yes, you can reserve your spot for 2019, once you register for 2018.  As always, Friday practice is included at no extra charge, with our one-of-a-kind tutor program for first time racers to Waterford Hills.  Also included is our legendary Saturday night dinner ( menu  t.b.a. ) in the clubhouse with bar, trophy presentations, and you never know who may show to be a guest speaker!      

Race entry fee includes Friday practice, 2 participants credentials, 1 support vehicle paddock pass and 2 tickets for the Saturday evening banquet and post race social hour.  Extra crew passes and dinner tickets are available through registration.  Please call us regarding tent rental information.   Take advantage of the early entry pricing and get your entries in!   Your credit card will not be charged until you arrive and check in at the event
