MINI Track Rides
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is excited to announce that the MINI Track Rides are returning. Vince Longo Jr., MINI of Pittsburgh, and Signs By Tomorrow – Pittsburgh are teaming up to get three new MINIs ready for track laps at Schenley Park and Pittsburgh International Race Complex.
Now in its 10th year, the MINI Track Rides program is a huge success and one of our most exciting sponsor opportunities. Three new race-equipped MINI Coopers are custom wrapped and showcased on the track and at the Grand Prix Race Week events. Best of all, as a sponsor, you are able to put your guests into these cars to experience a hot lap on the actual race tracks. Vince Longo Jr. and his certified racers take riders around the track for an experience and view you can only get from inside a car.
In addition to the three MINIs, we have a special treat this year- with MG celebrating its 100th anniversary,
MGBClassic.com will bring 2 classic MGBs providing track rides!
There are slots available for sponsors to catch a ride at Pitt-Race for the July 15/16 weekend and at Schenley Park for the July 22/23 weekend.
Decaled cars can be made available for sponsors to display at their locations before and during Race Week. The PVGP can issue certificates ahead of the event so that they can be given away as promotions or prizes for customers.

Schenley Park – July 22/23
Kate Longo and her team of volunteers handle all the meticulous details of the exclusive sponsor Hospitality Tent at Schenley Park and the VIP Room at Pitt Race. Guests can relax and watch the races. Both of these venues offer the best viewpoint for watching the races. Food and drink are provided.
Three MINIs along with two vintage MGs will be staged trackside. The cars take a lap of the track between race sessions, driven by Vince Longo Jr. and his team of trained certified drivers to raise funds and excitement. The BMW Ring Taxi, piloted by Mike Renner, also bases their rides from the Serpentine turn.
There is an exclusive sponsor Track Rides hospitality tent in Schenley Park where sponsors and their invited guests can eat and drink while they wait for their rides. The MINI Track Rides Tent is located at the top of the Serpentine turn and offers one of the best vantage points to watch the weekend’s races and easy access for the car to enter and exit the track.
Pitt Race – July 15/16
Three MINIs will be staged trackside below the timing tower right at the start/finish line. The cars take a lap of the track between race sessions and during the charity rides at noon each day.
The Track Rides are headquartered in the Timing Tower in the VIP Lounge. This is a great place to watch the races in air-conditioned comfort while awaiting your ride.
