About this event
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix started racing at Pittsburgh International Race Complex when the track opened in 2004 and we were the first race there when the track expanded to 2.8-miles in 2016. Combined with our vintage races in Schenley Park, the following weekend, the PVGP provides the ideal combination of vintage and historic racing bookending a 10-day motorsport festival.

VRG PARTNERSHIP The VRG and the PVGP have combined efforts for the Historics at Pitt Race starting this summer. We look forward to a great weekend of racing and hope that many members come back for the second weekend at Schenley Park
PORSCHE MARQUE We are anticipating Porsches of all types to join us this year. There is no dedicated Porsche Group or race as they are eligible in nearly every group.
BMW CLUB RACING The BMW Club will continue to handle registration for their group at Pitt Race. Please do not try and register for the BMW group through the PVGP. BMWCCA Registration will open in the spring.
40TH YEAR The PVGP celebrates its 40th year this summer. Many thanks to the racers who make this all possible and to the race side volunteers who keep everyone safe. This started as a single-day race on the Labor Day weekend in 1983 and has grown into a full two weeks of motorsport activities. Our 40th logo was designed in the Brumos Porsche livery, honoring Porsche as our 2022 Marque of the Year.
CHARITY Since 1983 our racers have shared the wheel with the PVGP in helping to donate more than $6 million to help individuals affected by autism and intellectual disabilities. Entry fees are suggested donations and are tax-deductible. We stage charity rides to raise funds for charity. Your participation is appreciated. These rides provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for race fans. Please consider participating in the rides on Saturday and Sunday.
TOW ONCE, RACE TWICE Race with us at Pitt Race and the PVGP will securely store your rig at the track so you return the following weekend to run through the streets of Schenley Park. After you have completed your racer registration for the Historics and you begin to register for Schenley Park, you will be prompted to indicate if you already entered the Historics and when you affirm, a $120 discount will be automatically applied toward your Schenley Park entry.
HOTELS The PVGP has a hotel partnership with several nearby hotels - Visit the PVGP Hotel Partner page
MISSION driving goal of the PVGP is to honor our automotive history by encouraging the preservation and racing of vintage cars in a format that emphasizes driver safety and etiquette while presenting a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for our drivers – all to raise valuable funds for our autism and Intellectual and developmental disability charity partners.
