Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Rebrands, Reveals New Logo

December 13, 2022 – The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is rebranding itself for 2023. PGVP Executive Director Daniel DelBianco announced, “the new logo features an open-wheel grand prix racer speeding over a red, white and blue flag. The car number is 83 – representing our founding in 1983. We are now the longest-running vintage race in the country.”

Dan Holmes, PVGP Creative Director, designed the logo and extensive corporate guidelines. “Dan has been the driving force behind our graphics and marketing materials, including event logos and posters, for nearly two decades. This new design adds a sense of exhilaration to the logo and rebrands us as the motorsport festival that we have become known for,” said DelBianco.

The PVGP started as a single day race in 1983. The event was born in Alan Patterson’s Shadyside garage, and his red 1948 MG-TC appeared at the center of the logo and remained for 40 years. Between its founding and the present, PVGP has grown into a national event with a 10-day motorsport festival and two race weekends.

Merchandise with the new logo will be available in time for the Pittsburgh International Auto Show in February.
