The 2011 edition of the Put-in-Bay Road Races Reunion (PIBRRR) is history, and by all accounts the event met or exceeded the previous years’ enjoyment factors in many key areas.


PIBRRR should be a significant event on the calendars of sports car enthusiasts because it celebrates sports car races held at Idyllic Put-in-Bay, Ohio in the ‘50s and early ‘60s.  MG, Porsche, Triumph, Morgan, Alfa Romeo, Lotus and many other sports car brands figured prominently in those races.  Read more about the PIBRRR activities after the jump:

Jack Woehrle, Bob Williams and others hard working volunteers (wrung out most likely from having just put on the 2009 Mid-Ohio vintage races over the previous four days) led a committed gaggle who recently helped crank the clock back some fifty-plus years on nostalgic South Bass Island in Lake Erie in Northwest Ohio. The event's purpose was to re-kindle the memories of sports car races held on the public roads of Put-in-Bay (the island's better known name) from '52 to '59 under the auspices of the Cleveland Sport Car Club. The MG Vintage Racers were well represented at this modest but delightful gathering. In fact, MGVR's own webmaster, Chris Kintner, equipped with a brain-full of knowledge and anecdotes, because his grandparents were the husband and wife team that ran the races, fittingly emerged as a star "expert witness" for the event.And so it was, on June 29 and 30, 2009 (the Monday and Tuesday following this year's SVRA Mid-Oho vintage race) an enthusiastic contingent of current, former and perhaps future vintage racers (and a few original racers from the original races, way back when) gathered for two days of reminiscing, road-painting, course-touring, ribbon cutting, donation arm-twisting, tale-telling, slide-showing, and laying the ground work for future events.
