Sunday July 7, 2019
Our 2019 Rallye was a great day – we avoided the rain, saw many new roads and found a new home at Red Robin. Many thanks to Paul Macintyre, Bruce Gezon, Jerry Longstreth, Don Privett, Jeff Hutzelman and all of the other volunteers that made it a success. Dan Gerhart and his team at Red Robin rolled out the red carpet to hoist us all day long.
Any car enthusiast can register to participate in a fun, but competitive, mystery course that will test your driving, navigational and trivia skills through the Pittsburgh countryside. The starting point will be moved to Red Robin at Pittsburgh Mills and the route will venture into new areas for the Rallye. Bruce Gezon is excited to be able to explore the backroads north and east of Pittsburgh.
The Rallye concludes with a party and awards at Red Robin. All participants will get a trip to the Gourmet burger bar, side dish, soft drinks and dessert. All for fun and the support of our charities!

PVGP Rallye History
Truly unique to our Rallye is that it’s open to the public – the first 90 driver/navigator teams to sign up get to run in a timed race through the streets and neighborhoods of Pittsburgh and its suburbs. Come have fun, get lost or maybe even join the parade!
Rallyes, popular in Europe, are relatively little-known in American motorsports – that’s where we got the extra “e” on the end! A rallye master sets the course, which is designed to be completed at the posted speed limits. Then, a set of directions is drawn up for the participants. These directions can be simple or incredibly difficult clues. The key is to pass through all checkpoints on time – being late or early will penalize the driver a certain number of points. So, even of you speed, you still can lose. In true Grand Prix style, the finish line will hold a party and awards ceremony for the participants.
