Historics at Pitt Race

Friday, July 26, 2024
July 26-28, 2024

Experience the heart-pounding thunder of the PVGP Historics at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. If you are looking for speed, muscle and thunder, this is the place to be. Since 2004, racers from all over the country have come to the 2.8-mile purpose-built track 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh for fierce and competition between the legends of the 60s and early 70s, including Mustangs, Corvettes, Jaguars, BMWs, Porsches and Alfa Romeos, just to name a few.

The Historic Race Weekend provides plenty of excitement for the entire family. Visit the cars and drivers in the expansive paddock and watch the races from several vantage points. Food/drink vendors and sponsors are located throughout the facility. Including Helltown Brewing – the “Official Beer of the PVGP” If you feel the personal need for speed, that can be done too. For a donation to the charity, you can rent a kart and reach speeds up to 45 mph on the .82 mile karting track. Look for this event to grow in popularity and numbers in the coming years.

Pitt Race Waiver
In order to enter the track you will need to complete a short on-line waiver. We highly recommend you complete at home to save time. Please click here and complete the waiver. You may have completed one recently but they expire after 2 weeks so please take a moment now to do so – you might have to wait as long as 20 minutes if you wait until you get to the track.\ and the wifi and cell coverage can be spotty.
