Race your Porsche with the PVGP!

Two grand race weekends featuring a big, fast track at Pitt Race and an authentic road circuit through the winding city streets of Schenley Park. Sponsored by Sewickley Porsche.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is preparing to celebrate its 40th year this summer and honor Porsche as the Marque of the Year with Porsches on the track both weekends. Porsches will also be on display at the car shows, parties and parades during the July 15-24 Race Week. The PVGP expects 400 Porsche vehicles to participate in the Porsche Marque Show on the Schenley Park Golf Course on the July 23-24 weekend. The PVGP logo for 2022 represents the famous Brumos Porsche livery.

Ray Shaffer, the Porsche Market Development Manager at Porsche Cars North America, is coming home to Pittsburgh to serve as our Grand Marshal. Ray was born and raised in the South Hills area of Pittsburgh. Ray traces the roots of his career in the auto industry to a chance meeting he had with the late Coca-Cola Porsche racer, and Sebring 12 hour-winner, Bob Akin at the 1986 PVGP.
