An Important Message From the ARPCA President – May 2020

President’s Message:

Now that we are well into month 2 of the fall-out from the Covid-19 corona virus pandemic, I’m guessing that many of you are feeling quite antsy and are looking forward to when we can reemerge into our more normal lives. None of us really know what the new normal will be, but I am confident that at least from the Club perspective, we will be able to gather and enjoy each others’ company and our Porsches.

Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Shifting Gears
Canceling Race Week while Featuring Smaller Driving Events

Excerpts from the – Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association:

After consulting with our committees, sponsors and city officials the PVGP has decided to cancel its July 17-26, 2020 Race Week.

Most major automotive events throughout the summer have already been canceled due to COVID-19. The PVGP waited as long as possible before making a decision, hoping the situation in Pennsylvania would improve. This is a difficult decision, but I am encouraged by the patience and enthusiasm of our volunteers.

A Message from FAST Company

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Racers and PCA customers who have forgone their discount normally given to members, which we have matched for a $1600.00 donation to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.  We have also donated proceeds from race car storage (Hartwood Area Racing Drivers).  Thanks to you for feeding people in our area and to Jim & Kathy Stout for helping the effort at Pitt Race today.  I’ve been told that we feed a lot of people.
