THE PORSCHE CLUB STAGES ONE OF THE LARGEST SHOWS AT SCHENLEY PARK
The Grand Prix congratulates the Allegheny Region of the Porsche Club of America for their tremendously support of our event since the beginning.
Anchoring German Hill, the Porsche Club has been one of the Grand Prix’s largest and most supportive car clubs over the years. It’s members have played key roles in the growth and success of our car shows and races.
Attend one of the most Spectacular Vintage Races in the world – and Party ARPCA style!
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, now in its 35th year, is the Club’s biggest annual event. Come join hundreds of your fellow Club members, guests from other regions, and friends as we again gather on the lawn at Schenley Park to enjoy our cars, races and above all, camaraderie that has grown over the years. Whether this is your first PVGP weekend, or 35th, now is the time to register and get this event on your calendar. The PVGP takes place in scenic Schenley Park in the heart of Pittsburgh. This is one of 2 vintage races that occur on public streets in the world, the other of course being Monaco. It is also our largest fundraiser of the year – proceeds are donated through PVGP to the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and Allegheny Valley School ($405,000 last year!).
This year promises to be the best yet, with nothing but sunshine predicted for the ENTIRE weekend! We will bring back the hugely successful Top 10 Peoples’ Choice Concours, which is open to all registered Porsches. We also plan to have a few special cars “under the tent”. If you believe your Porsche fits the bill for special display, send a note to me at the email below. A donation will be required, and display is limited to 4 cars. More to follow on this shortly. Also, we will have a special 60th anniversary PCA and ARPCA hat, free to registrants for the full weekend, and for sale at the event otherwise.

Ed Rice – Allegheny Region Porsche Club
2011 was the 50th anniversary of the Allegheny Region of the Porsche Club of America. On March 25, 1961, 31 Porsche owners and P.C.A. members gathered at McSorley’s Restaurant in the North Hills to form their own P. C. A. Chapter. Visit the Allegheny Region’s website to learn more about their history. Porsche was the marque of the year in 1994 and 2002, each time they set a new record for charitable funds raised by the marque including 2011 when $73,500 was raised from the Marque and $200,000 was split between our charities.
