The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix mourns the passing of Mike Connolly on October 3, 2023, Mike was our longtime Race Director and President. He served the PVGP for all 41 years, leaving an indelible mark on our event and our community. His enthusiasm brought many volunteers into the organization, and his knowledge of racing helped the PVGP establish the longest-running vintage street race in the country.
