Early July 2024

 

 

Greetings and Salutations,

I will keep this extremely brief as there’s a lot of information for July and August.

Please note the registration grid for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix below.  ARPCA specific events are linked to Motorsports Reg and the PVGP events are linked to their specific event pages.  I hope this helps you register for the events you wish to attend.  Email questions about PVGP events to pvgp@arpca.com

Have a happy July 4th!

Something Quite Different for the 2024 ARPCA Driving Tour! Track ‘n Tour Party – July 13th 

It will be here before you know it!

  • Have you ever had your car on the track?
  • Have you ever had Great BBQ (and a cold one) after a long afternoon of driving?
  • We are having the tour early this year and will join the HPDE group already at Pitt Race.
  • Well, then come with us and tour Western PA with a bit of Ohio. After driving some back roads, we finally reach our destination, Pitt Race, our tour group will run a couple of laps on the track (behind the safety car) and then into the car corral for showcasing our beauties to chow down on a BBQ Dinner.
  • This is expected to be the biggest ARPCA participation event of the year with the BBQ, HPDE and Tour, all together at the same time. Tour cost is $45 per person and includes the BBQ, if your spouse and/or family wants to attend at the track, the BBQ is only $35 per person.
