Historics at Pitt Race July 25-28, 2024

We hope you’ve had a great off-season so far, and we’re looking forward to seeing you race with us in Pittsburgh this summer. After one of our cleanest seasons in 2023, with more green flag laps than ever, we are excited to announce our features for this year.

We are excited to celebrate our 42nd year in 2024 and our 20th year at the fabulous Pittsburgh International Race Complex.

Our Historics at Pitt Race falls on the July 26-28 weekend. We’ve shifted a little later in the calendar to avoid conflicts with other major races. We hope to see entrants and fans who typically visit Road America.

Please review the links below and enter the PVGP. Discounts are available through the end of April. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions.

Historics to honor the Mini Marque of the Year and host the Ford GT40 Reunion

Mini is our 2024 Marque of the Year, so the PVGP invites all Minis to race with us within the small bore groups on both weekends. The Ford GT 60th Reunion will also join us. They will have track time in addition to a car show and charity laps. GT40s of all years will be welcome. Details

2023 PVGP Historics at Pitt Race

From its first event in 2004, PVGP Historics has grown over the past decade to establish itself as a stand-alone vintage and historic race weekend.

Pittsburgh International Race Complex’s purpose-built track, 40 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, provides the perfect venue for the legends of the 1960s and early 1970s to thunder through the Pennsylvania countryside while providing plenty of racing room and safety features. The addition of the 1.2-mile South Track stretches the facility out to a heart-pounding 2.8 miles.

The Complex is the ideal venue for racing iconic American performance cars, such as Camaro’s, Mustangs and Corvettes. In addition, it’s the perfect place to feature exciting open-wheel racing with Formula Fords and Formula Juniors. The best of Europe is represented as well by BMW, Porsche, Jaguar, Lotus and Alfa Romeo.

As we have done for the last 10 years, we plan to stage our event over 4 days. Three full days of racing with a fourth day for Test & Tune. We will use a dual entry form for both race weekends – allowing entrants to take advantage of several discounts. For those planning to leave their rigs at Pitt Race between events, we will store them at the track during the week – at no cost to competitors.  Access to the facility will be available on at 6:00 PM on Wednesday, July 24. There will also be no additional camping charge if you are staying overnight.

Pitt Race Track Waiver

Racers, crew and PVGP volunteers must all go online to register before the event. The waiver form will be available on July 15, 2024. Once you arrive at the track you will be asked your name and the track will snap a quick photo and you get right in. If you don’t complete this online form beforehand you will need to pull out of line and complete the form on your phone which could take 10 or more minutes.

PVGP Mission

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix’s mission remains the same as when it was established back in 1983 “To host a world-class vintage race event that celebrates our automotive heritage and raises money for charity.” In the original spirit of vintage racing that took place on public roads in the 1940s and 1950s, our vintage races through the streets of Schenley Park will continue to present a safe and friendly environment for our drivers and fans. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is and always will be a charity event. Thanks in great part to our racers, over $6 million has been raised since 1983. These funds directly help individuals in western Pennsylvania affected by autism and intellectual & developmental disabilities. The PVGP is truly a race where everybody wins! Read more on our Charities.


The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand has been one of the leading vintage race organizations in the country when it comes to establishing driver and track safety for road courses. With the assistance of the Steel Cities Region of the SCCA, we have set the standard, nationwide, for safety set-up and procedures. As a valuable member of the Vintage Motorsports Council, the PVGP has consulted with numerous vintage race venues to help them establish safety regulations and procedures based on our more than 40 years of experience and expertise. See our Racers Conduct Policy.

We will continue to uphold these standards for the safety of our racers, volunteers, and fans. The races at Schenley Park constitute the most challenging circuit in vintage racing. With stone walls, curbs, phone poles and 23 off-camber turns – there is little room for error. New drivers will be required to attend a special meeting to review the track and its unique requirements.

Car Preparation

Applicants must have a competition license and be a member in good standing with a race organization. Cars that qualify within our Race Groups will be scrutineered by the PVGPA based upon the vehicle preparation and safety equipment rules of their respective vintage race organizations. There will be a few local rules, the most important restriction that applies for all racers is that slick tires are not permitted.

Frequently Asked Questions


PVGP and Vintage Racer Group Combining Efforts at Historics at Pitt Race

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix and the Vintage Racer Group are combining efforts for the PVGP Historics at Pittsburgh International Race Complex. This team combines the foremost vintage racing organization in the East with one of the premier race events in the country.

In the 21 years since its inception in 2004, the PVGP Historics at PIRC has grown to establish itself as a premier stand-alone vintage and historic race weekend. The challenging and beautiful 2.8-mile circuit is reminiscent of the great race circuits of the past. For many, racing at Pitt Race is the lynchpin of their race season and so the PVGP Historics has become a must-attend race on the historic and vintage circuit.

The VRG is a non-profit vintage race organization, run by racers, for racers. It is best known for its focus on safety and for its ability to run efficient race events. The addition of the PVGP Historics to the VRG schedule puts this great event right in the middle of a race season that begins in April at VIR, with race weekends at The Jefferson 500 at Summit Point in May, Thompson Vintage Festival in June and finishes with the Lime Rock Fall Festival in August, The Bog at Watkins Glen in September and the Turkey Bowl at Summit Point in November.

PVGP Executive Director Dan DelBianco stated “VRG members have supported our races since their club was formed back in 2005. We are looking forward to a great partnership developing as the PVGP Historics get bigger and better each year. We anticipate a large number of VRG members will participate and provide some great racing in Beaver County. This event is a major fundraiser for our charities and kicks off our 10-day event each July that concludes with the PVGP vintage races through Schenley Park the following weekend. We encourage competitors to return and race at Schenley Park and we provide free storage of rigs so that racers can tow once and race twice.”

Pittsburgh International Race Complex’s Kathy Stout is equally excited about the arrangement affirming “Congratulations to PVGP and VRG on their partnership to continue the growth of vintage racing in the Eastern United States.  We are excited to promote and host this premier event at our facility.”
