The 2021 Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races & Reunion will provide two full days of racing on the Put-In-Bay Airport as well as a full day of pre-racing events preceding the race days.

Much more than just a VINTAGE RACE; the Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races and Reunion 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 for 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 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. 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.

Put-in-Bay VW Challenge: This group is intended to be an entry level, fun class, that can race at PIB on an annual basis. The rules are pretty basic with a certain amount of leeway with respect to easy, bolt-on accessories.
