The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix offers an extensive selection of sponsorship opportunities for your organization to become part of our celebrated event. Race Weekend at Schenley Park is the perfect venue for you to entertain your customers; throw a party for your employees; raise awareness of your organization; showcase your product; or simply watch the races with friends and family.
Most of our sponsorship packages have a provision for you to put up a tent or display on the grounds at Schenley Park. Each package has different allowances for the square footage of your tent. The only package that includes a tent supplied by the PVGP is the Start/Finish Line.
In addition to the six sponsorship levels at Schenley Park we also have opportunities to associate your company with individual events such as car shows, a road rallye and cruises. We also welcome the opportunity to create a custom package to suit your needs.
Bronze Sponsorship – $2,500
This is our entry level package that allows sponsors to gain exposure through PVGP Race Program advertising, public address announcements and banner placement. The advantage is maximum impressions without the added cost of supplying and catering your own tent. Passes to our VIP Pavilion are just one of the many items you receive. The VIP tent is an exclusive tent located inside corner 16 of the racetrack, food and drink are complimentary for all guests.
Start/Finish Sponsorship – $3,500
The start/finish line along Bartlett Street puts you at the heart of race activities. Here, the race stewards, pace cars, flagmen, announcers, press and photographers all converge with the drivers and the race cars.
