Please note: Approaching its 10th year, the annual Put-in-Bay Sports Car Races and Reunion event has a revised date pattern for 2018. Previously held in late August, the 2018 event has moved to late September (Sept. 24 - 27) with racing to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, Sept. 25 and 26, 2018. 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.

Monday, September 24: Arrival day for most participants (although some will likely arrive Sunday or earlier). Registration, race-car tech inspection, afternoon car show and tour of the original course, early-evening wine and cheese reception and “recollections roundtable” presentation.
Tuesday, September 25: Track orientation for racers followed by practice sessions and group-race qualifying. Lunch-break track touring. Early evening rocker cover races at The Goat restaurant.
Wednesday, September 26: Two rounds of group races, official opening ceremonies, track touring, and Put-in-Bay Cup race. Food, drink and awards follow at Joe’s Bar.
Thursday, September 27: Farewell morning brunch and departure.
