Default PVGP 2018 - Registration Open

It's that time of the year again - 7 weeks out - The 36th annual Pittsburgh Vintage grand Prix! This has become a world class car event. Come join hundreds of your fellow p-car enthusiasts as we again gather on the lawn at Schenley Park to enjoy our cars and the races. Now is the time to register and get this event on your calendar.

FEATURE CAR - This year we are celebrating the Race Cars of Porsche with two very special cars - the RC Cola 962 and the Flying Lizard 911 GT3RS. You will want to see these cars up close - both significant race cars, including a podium finish at Le Mans (the GT3 RS in '05). We will also feature a handful of special Club race cars in a ring around the two pro cars.

The PVGP takes place in scenic Schenley Park in the heart of Pittsburgh. This is one of 2 vintage races that occur on public streets in the world, the other being Monaco. It is also a significant charity fundraiser – proceeds are donated through the PVGP to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School.

Here are the highlights of the weekend activities to enjoy:

Friday, July 13:
  • Glacier Tour Rally - this event starts the weekend of festivities with a countryside tour though W PA, including lakes, twisties and Amish country. It is a 3 hour tour that starts and ends at the place for the Welcome Party; Driver's meeting at 12:45 pm and wheels up at 1 pm.
  • Weekend kick-off Party at the Double Wide restaurant in Cranberry Township PA – our local Club (ARPCA) will host the out of town clubs travelling to participate in the PVGP. The venue is right next to the hotels and turnpike just North of the City. It will also include a nice impromptu gathering of Porsches of all varieties, including the 962 and the GT3 RS. All local and distant Porsches welcome. Starting at 5 pm to ?
