PITTSBURGH VINTAGE GRAND PRIX
PVGP Shifting Gears for 2020
Featuring Select Events and Driving Tours
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, presented by the Greater Pittsburgh Automobile Dealers Foundation, has made schedule changes to this year’s events in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
After consulting with city officials and stakeholders, the PVGP is canceling its July 17-26 Race Week. Participants and fans of the nation’s largest vintage race event will be pleased to hear the event is planning a full return in 2021 on July 16-25 and Corvette will remain as the Marque of the Year. Revised 2021 PVGP Race Week Schedule.
PVGP Chairman James Dolan stated, “Our priority is to protect the health and safety of the fans, racers, volunteers and sponsors involved. We care deeply about this significant event and arrived at this decision after much consideration. We understand how disappointing this will be to our dedicated volunteers, racers, sponsors, participants and charities.
For 2020 the PVGP is still planning to host its Waterfront Car Cruise on July 21 and the Countryside Tour to Jamison Farm on July 23. In the months ahead the PVGP will work with their car club partners and sponsors to launch a series of driving tours, car shows and fundraisers to continue to support our charities who have been hit hard during this pandemic.
PVGP Executive Director Dan DelBianco stated “We have explored every avenue for staging our traditional races and car shows in Schenley Park along with our 10-days of Race Week events, but it is just not possible to proceed under current circumstances. To provide outlets for eager car enthusiasts, we plan to create smaller events this year to raise funds for our charities. I would like to thank our fans and sponsors for their support and patience in these challenging times.”
