About this event
LUCKY SEVENTH ANNUAL COATESVILLE INVITATIONAL VINTAGE GRAND PRIX
The popular Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix will return to the streets of Coatesville, PA for an exhibition of speed featuring vintage race cars and motorcycles.
BMC is proud to continue managing all technical aspects of this driving event. Our volunteer staff made 2022's event run more smoothly than ever, and earned thanks from drivers and riders. If you've volunteered in the past, THANK YOU!
Once again, we need your help in providing staff for technical and safety management of the driving event, such as tech inspection, flagging, grid and track marshalling, communications, and similar tasks. Please sign up here only if you want to help with the technical management of the driving portion of the event. If you wish to volunteer for roles such as event promotion, displays, hospitality, or other tasks related to the overall social event, please visit the CVGP website.
This is a great opportunity to experience these historic race vehicles up close, being driven the way they were meant to be, at no cost to you! We anticipate as many as 60 vintage cars and 24 vintage motorcycles in the following classes:
- Group 1: 1900-1950 Open Wheel Race Cars
- Group 2: 1950-1983 4- and 6- Cylinder Race Cars
- Group 3: 1950-1983 6-, 8-, and 12-Cylinder Race Cars
- Group 4: 1900-1983 Motorcycles - 500cc and Under
- Group 5: 1900-1983 Motorcycles - Over 500cc
Experience as a corner worker / track marshal for racing events is a plus, but anyone who has worked on course at an autocross will have basic knowledge of tasks and conditions involved. We will make every effort to change work stations during the day for a varied experience.
Volunteers will be needed from approximately 7:00a until 4:00p on the day of the event. Lapping sessions are expected to begin at 8:30a, with a half hour break for lunch. Lapping sessions will end at 3:00p.
Last year, a nearby hotel offered discounted rates for volunteers. Details are not available yet, but we anticipate that this offer will be repeated for 2023. We will post information as it becomes available.
