The Grand Prix’s 10th annual Tune-Up event starts inside Atria’s at PNC Park and spills out onto the sidewalks, on Federal Street and across the entire Roberto Clemente (Sixth Street) Bridge towards downtown with over 125 race and show cars on display. It is a spectacular event highlighted by a display of historic and vintage race cars in front of Atria’s and a spectacular car show on the bridge.
The best part is that you can participate in the evening’s car show. When you buy your tickets on-line you can also purchase a reserved space on the bridge to display your special car.
Kate Benz of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review selected it as one of the Best Parties and summed it up best saying “the summer staple underwent a brilliant transformation this year thanks to a decision to move the festivities from its former location Downtown to the area in front of Atria’s at PNC Park on the North Side. There, the streets had been closed off, including the Sixth Street Bridge, much to the delight of a crowd that swelled by the minute.”
Many thanks to our 2015 sponsor Metz Lewis Brodman Must O’Keefe, our Tune-Up committee, PVGP volunteers, the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County for helping us put together a grand event. $23,800 was raised for our charities from this single night event!
To help make the move-in easier we have made a few changes this year – all cars parking on the bridge will enter from the downtown side of the 6th Street Bridge and all cars invited into the Race Car Corral on Federal Street will enter from the PNC Park side of the Bridge. No cars will be allowed to enter the 6th Street bridge or Federal Street until 6:00 pm – sorry, no exceptions.
Tickets will go on sale in March, 2016
This is an exclusive party held in downtown Pittsburgh a few days before our vintage races in Schenley Park. Come meet the racers, see their cars up close and mingle with the fast crowd! Thanks to Atria’s Restaurant and Tavern for hosting our event.
