Post-1981 Fords subject to approval. 

Modern Historics

This is a group of cars that are newer than vintage, but more than 20 years old. These represent, in part, the next generation of vintage racers. It will be one run group with multiple classes. Displacement between 2.5 – 5.7 liters. Production and selected other cars 20 years or older (Pre 2003). Includes newer models which were continuations during the time frame. Includes many of the BMWs that ran with us for the past 15 years as part of the BMWCCA Group, including all model year E46 chassis. Slicks and period correct aerodynamics are permitted.

PLEASE NOTE:  Request for entry into this group for this group will be approved based on car appearance and driver history. Entries requesting to participate in Modern Historics must submit CURRENT photos of their cars.  Cars must be presented at the track in a clean and neat condition. Dents, rippled panels, unrepaired damage, tape, primer and visible rust will not be allowed. 

Ferrari Challenge
Ferrari is our 2023 Marque of the year so the PVGP is inviting a contingent of Ferrari Challenge cars to come race with us. Open to 2003 and earlier Ferraris with certain exceptions. If we can garner enough Ferrari entries we will create a dedicated Ferrari Marque Race. This could also become a regular group. Please contact Joe Teplitz to inquire.

Shelby Race

In honor of the Shelby American Automobile Convention (SAAC-48) and Team Shelby East Coast Grand Nationals that join us this year, there will be a single session Shelby Race on Saturday afternoon. All Shelby cars are eligible. Entrants must be registered and race within the large bore group to qualify. $50 donation for this single-session race.
