Allegheny Region Porsche Club of America
2020 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
July 24th, 25th, 26th
Plan to attend the 38th annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with ARPCA. Join hundreds of your fellow club members, guests from other regions, and friends as we gather on “Porsche Field” in Schenley Park to enjoy our cars, vintage races and the camaraderie that defines PVGP weekend. Now is the time to mark this event on your calendar. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is our club’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds donated through the PVGP charity to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School.
This year promises to be an outstanding event with new amenities geared toward making your experience more enjoyable. The club’s PVGP Committee will repeat the streamlined check-in process where attendees register through Motorsport Registration (MSR) and receive an email from PVGP_reg@arpca.com with their dash plaque and QR code “ticket” as attachments. As members drive up to the Porsche corral, we will scan the QR code and have your wrist bands, raffle ticket, and PVGP program pre-staged at the Registration tent. The club will also feature a Dining Tent complete with linen tablecloths and catering partner, Mission BBQ. In addition, the Full Weekend Package and all event pricing remain unchanged from the previous year.
Remember, you must Pre-Register to guarantee a spot in Porsche Field. Parking is limited to 250 cars. With increasing attendance and a large contingent from outside the region, space is limited.
