Porsche Club 2022 Marque of the Year Festivities
Registration open in February
Plan to attend the 40th annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with ARPCA. Porsche is this year’s Marque of the Year. Join hundreds of club members and guests from other regions as we gather on “Porsche Field” in Schenley Park to enjoy fine automotive culture, vintage races and the camaraderie that defines PVGP weekend. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is the club’s largest fundraiser of the year with proceeds donated through the PVGP charities.
This year promises to be an outstanding event featuring a multitude of Porsche Club and PVGP events that span 10 days! The club’s PVGP Committee is utilizing a streamlined check-in process where attendees register through Motorsport Registration (MSR) and receive an email from PVGP_Reg@arpca.com with a dash plaque and QR code “ticket” as attachments. As members drive up to the Porsche Field, they will scan the QR code and have your wrist bands, raffle ticket, and PVGP program pre-staged at the Registration tent. You must Pre-Register to guarantee a spot in Porsche Field. Parking is limited cars. With increasing attendance from across the country and large contingent from the Chicago Region this year, space is limited.

Porsche Club Leads PVGP 2020 Fundraising Efforts
In 2020, the Allegheny Region of the Porsche Club of America took a leading role in the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix’s efforts to raise funds for our charities”. Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the annual 10-day PVGP was canceled. Instead, the PVGP announced the organization would engage in a “Shifting Gears” campaign for the remainder of the year to raise money for its charities. Local car clubs and supporters staged 26 events that allowed them to safely be together and enjoy meeting with their cars.”
Ed Rice and the Porsche Club raised $6,100 with Parade Laps in Schenley Park on Sunday, July 26, the normally scheduled Race Day. “The impromptu event was a stunning success,” according to Ed Rice, president of the Allegheny Region Porsche Club. “I was in a melancholy mood when the event was canceled and I just didn’t want to sit around and do nothing that weekend. Then I thought, what the heck, every year in the days before Race Weekend in Schenley Park I drive the racecourse to get into the vibe of the PVGP.”

Attend one of the most spectacular vintage races in the world – and Party ARPCA style! The PVGP is the Club’s biggest annual event. Join hundreds of club members, guests from other regions, and friends as they gather on the lawn at Schenley Park to enjoy their cars, races, and above all, the camaraderie that has grown over the years. On March 25, 1961, 31 Porsche owners and P.C.A. members gathered at McSorley’s Restaurant in the North Hills of Pittsburgh to form their own P. C. A. Chapter. Visit the Allegheny Region’s website to learn more about their history. Porsche was the Marque of the Year in 1994 and 2002, each time they set a record for charitable funds raised by the marque including 2011 when $73,500 was raised from the Marque and $200,000 was split between our charities.
