2016 PVGP – The Legends of Schenley Park

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is grateful to all of our drivers and we truly appreciate when they return to race with us year after year. Drivers make our Schenley Park race event what it has become today. To acknowledge those drivers we have created a great way to recognize you – its called the “Legends of Schenley Park” that honors racers that have competed with us for 15 or more years.

PVGP Legends PatchIn 2016 all drivers who have competed in 15th or more races will be presented with a commemorative patch. A total of 49 racers have competed 15 or more times. Ten more racers will qualify if they enter in 2016 which would bring our total up to 59 Legends. We plan to award patches and a special gift to recognize these drivers after our driver/volunteer dinner in Schenley Park on Saturday, July 16 at 7:00 pm. Drivers and crew and with hot wristbands are admitted for free. Legends are also free and are welcome to invite family and friends to attend, if they want to join you for the buffet dinner the cost is $15 per person and includes Hofbrauhaus beer and Mazza wine.

Five of our Legends are no longer with us, but we heartily encourage their family to attend on their behalf.

Below is our list of racers who have raced 10 or more times at Schenley Park. Our records from the early years may not be fully accurate. Many thanks to Don Baker for reconstructing 33 years of records to create this list. If we have made an error in calculating the total years that you have raced with us please email the PVGP and we will get it corrected. 

Drivers in red have RSVP’d that they will be attending this year – please send in your racer entry or let Dan DelBianco know if you are not racing but plan to attend.
