About this event
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has a rich history of racing through the stone-walled, tree-lined streets of Schenley Park since 1983. Fans line the snow fence to watch the races through the idyllic park setting. This is the highlight of our 10-day motorsport festival. PVGP homepage for Schenley Park Races
MISSION The 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.
41ST YEAR The PVGP celebrates its 41st 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.
SPECIAL RACES To Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the MG there will be a Sunday afternoon All MG Race. The popular Axis vs Allies Race returns as the last race of the day Saturday. A $50 donation is requested for each special race.
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 and developmental disabilities. Entry fees are suggested donations and are tax-deductible. We stage charity rides to raise funds for our charities. Your participation is appreciated. These rides provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for race fans.
