PVGP 2015

Attend one of the most Spectacular Vintage Races in the world – and Party ARPCA style!

PVGP 2015

Registration Closed Wednesday July 15th at 11:59PM

The Pittsburgh Vintage grand Prix, now in its 33d year, is our Club’s biggest annual event. Come join hundreds of your fellow Club members, guests from other regions, and friends as we again gather on the lawn at Schenley Park to enjoy our cars, races and above all, camaraderie that has grown over the years. Whether this is your first PVGP weekend, or 33d, now is the time to register and get this event on your calendar. 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 of course being Monaco. It is also our largest fundraiser of the year – proceeds are donated through PVGP to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School ($360,000 for 2014!!).

This year promises to be the best yet, with nothing but sunshine predicted for the ENTIRE weekend! We will bring back the hugely successful Top 10 Peoples’ Choice Concours, which is open to all registered Porsches. We also plan to have a few special cars “under the tent”. If you believe your Porsche fits the bill for special display, send a note to me at the email below. A donation will be required, and display is limited to 4 cars. More to follow on this shortly. Also, we will have a special 60th anniversary PCA and ARPCA hat, free to registrants for the full weekend, and for sale at the event otherwise.
