About this event
FIFTH ANNUAL COATESVILLE INVITATIONAL VINTAGE GRAND PRIX
After taking 2020 off due to the pandemic, the popular Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix will return to the streets of Coatesville, PA for a timed exhibition of speed featuring vintage race cars and motorcycles. BMC is proud to be managing all technical aspects of this driving event.
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, timing, 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 12 vintage motorcycles in the following classes:
- Group 1: 1900 to 1950 - Open wheel race cars
- Group 2: 1930 to 1975 - 4-cylinder race cars
- Group 3: 1930 to 1975 - 6-cylinder race cars
- Group 4: 1930 to 1975 - 8, 10, and 12 cylinder race cars
- Group 5: 1930 to 1975 - racing motorcycles (all)
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.
