Small-bore sports cars raced through the streets of the village of Put-in-Bay from 1952 to 1959 and one last time in 1963. Today’s races take place on a challenging 1.2-mile hay bale-lined course at the island’s airport. Unique in vintage racing in many ways, the Put-in-Bay event offers entry options for racing-, exhibition- and non-racing enthusiasts plus an entrants car show, tours of the original street course, social events and the unexplainable and often hysterical “rocker cover races.”
