Taking Our Triumph TR3 to Put-In-Bay This Weekend

We’re headed to South Bass Island, Ohio, this weekend for the ninth annual Put-in-Bay Road Race Reunion. And yes, we’re entering a car in this historic event. Publisher Tim Suddard is racing our project Triumph TR3 all weekend. Come find us in the paddock, and we’ll give you a tour of the car. Plus we’ll be offering our latest subscription deals.

The Put-In-Bay Road Races step back in time and bring vintage motorsports to life. They proclaim their weekend to provide “more guaranteed fun than any other vintage racing event.” The weekend schedule includes car shows, tours, social events and, of course, the racing.

Tim qualified 3rd, but finished his first session in 4th after a bobble at the start. You can watch his next session this afternoon: WPIB.com will be live-streaming the racing here starting at 2:00 p.m. Tim goes back out at 2:30.

Myself, my Dad and my son Tyler went out there yesterday. I did not see anyone over by the car when we walked through the paddock unfortunately, though I did get some video of Tim with his phone out during the laps of the old course. Anyway, good luck today.

Yeah, Tim said he shot some quick video while he was doing the parade on the old course.

Tim's having a great weekend. After another bad start (he had understood there would be 2 pace laps), he began his second session dead last. In the rain. He then proceeded to pass all but the first two cars, ending his session in 3rd and qualified for the feature.

He finished the feature, which had the top 10 cars from each of the 4 race groups, 5th overall and first in class.

I am a little jealous of the relationship he has with Millie, his TR3 race car.

Perhaps you can take solace in knowing that, in the fictional book about GRM loosely based on actual events, your name would probably be changed to "Millie."
