PVGP Association

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is quite a unique vintage racing event. With 10 days of races, car shows and parties it is one of our country’s largest vintage races, but it’s the only one run through actual city streets – the way sports car racing began in the 1940s and 1950s.

We are proud to host one of western Pennsylvania’s premier events, one whose mission is to celebrate and honor our founding auto enthusiasts while simultaneously using this venue to benefit charity. Funds raised help to provide residential care, treatment and support for autistic and intellectual/developmental disabled individuals in western Pennsylvania.

The PVGP is synonymous with Schenley Park and racing through the beautiful park setting. Vintage racing at Schenley Park is the culmination of a 10-day Race Week highlighted by Historic Races at Pitt Race, numerous car shows, cruises, and a Blacktie Gala!

We want to thank everyone who makes this event possible; the drivers who share their appreciation of vintage motorsports, the army of volunteers who work all year to make the races and shows run successfully, and the cooperation of our city government to stage this world-class event throughout Pittsburgh.

Ladies and gentlemen…start your engines!
