Kick-Off Rallye

Sunday July 7, 2019

You don’t have to be a racer or have experience in a rally competition to enjoy our Kick-Off Rallye and help us kick off the 2019 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix.

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 remain at Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park but 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 at the Pittsburgh Mills. 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.
