Classic sports car owners recreate the post-WWII road races around the island from 1952-1959 and again in 1963. Put-in-Bay was one of only two places in the U.S. where public roads were closed and lined with bales of hay to provide a sports car racing circuit. Many well-known sports car racers of that era – Chuck Dietrich, Carl Haas, and Chuck Stoddard, for example – got their start in racing on the challenging, fast, rough, and narrow course at Put-in-Bay.
Organizers are pleased to report two significant enhancements in the race program: the airport course will be expanded from the current.8-mile configuration to approximately 1.2 miles, and also the racing activity will likely be expanded from the present “Tuesday only” event to a race schedule that would begin early Monday afternoon and run a full day on Tuesday.
