    Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix

    until
    LOOKING FOR ALL BMW 2002’S. COME ONE, COME ALL, TO THE 2018 PITTSBURGH VINTAGE GRAND PRIX If you have a 2002 you won’t want to miss this party. The Allegheny Chapter has selected the iconic 2002 as the model of the year and will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of our beloved 2002 while hosting the “Marque of the Year” festivities and BMW CCA Oktoberfest, July 5th through July 15, 2018. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, in its 35th year, is a ten-day motorsport festival with the purpose to raise awareness and funds for the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School. Every year the PVGP selects a Marque and this year is ours again. The Allegheny Chapter of the BMW CCA has been a ground breaker in fund raising for these worthwhile charities and have donated over $250,000. This year our goal is to donate over a $100,000 and we hope you will help. Things get started Friday, July 5 and run through July 7 at Pittsburgh International Motorsports Complex where the Allegheny Chapter will host a Vintage 2002 Race, a National Points BMW CCA Club Race and a car corral all as part of the PVGP Historics at Pitt-Race. All racers will receive lunches, a welcome reception and dinners throughout the weekend. Spectators can reserve designated space in our corral and enjoy lunches in our tent while watching the races from Spectator Hill. On Monday July 8 a select number of historical BMW’s will be on display at the PVGP Shadyside Invitational Car Show. The car show is free and open to spectators and all are encouraged to attend. If you have a vintage BMW with historical significance and would like to be part of this exclusive car show please send a bio and pictures to bmw.event.coordinator@gmail.com by June 1, 2018.

Here you can go back in time and race on the City streets of Schenley Parks 2.3-mile, 23 turn road course. Curbs, street lights, manhole covers and haybales, what’s there not to like. Oh, did I say over 100,000 spectators. This is a once in a life time opportunity to race with all 2002 race cars other vintage racers. On Friday night, our “Forbes Avenue of Speed” Race Car Parade & Display in nearby Squirrel Hill is a great opportunity to meet the racers and see the cars up close. Vintage racers will parade through Squirrel Hill and park on Forbes Avenue for a car show. Our corral gets started early Saturday and Sunday morning on German Hill. With All 2002’s proudly displayed and eligible for a chance at the People’s Choice awards (Best Roundie, Square and Race Car).
