Legends of Schenley Park


PVGP Legends Patch

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

All drivers who have competed in 15th or more races will be presented with a commemorative patch. A total of 49 racers qualified in 2016 and 32 were present to be honored at the Saturday night dinner.  Two racers qualified in 2017. We award embroidered race suit patches and a special gift to recognize these drivers during the Driver’s Meeting in Schenley Park on Friday, July 13 at 5:30 pm. 

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 decades 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.
