The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has been held on the city streets in and around Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania since 1984, and has grown into an exciting, multi-day event that draws in a 2,000-vehicle car show, 200,000 spectators, and a field of over 180 historic race cars.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, or PVGP as it is often known, is a unique historic racing festival held on the city streets in and around Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. PVGP has been hosted in the Steel City since 1984, and has grown from a one-day private race to an event exciting to any enthusiast and benefitting both the Autism Society of America and the Allegheny Valley School. What was once a racing event is now a 2,000-vehicle international car show with food and vendors across the Bob O’Conner Golf Course where spectators (usually numbering close to 200,000) overlook the races (now featuring a total of over 180 historic race cars) held on the city streets below.

The BMW CCA’s portion of PVGP has grown, too; the event is no longer a two-day car corral, but a complete four-day program that offers something for every BMW enthusiast and includes driving tours, dinners, and charity hot-lap rides thanks to the BMW Performance Center (the latter is shown above).

In 2015, the Allegheny Chapter will feature M cars in the Schenley Park corral overlooking Turn 13 and are inviting all M car owners to join them. For online registration or for more information, visit PVGP.org/bmw or the Allegheny Chapter BMW CCA’s website.
