Vintage Indy Car Exhibition at Schenley Park

Weekend, July 24/25, 2021

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix will host the Vintage Indy at Schenley Park Race Weekend. “Indy in the Park” will feature a fan-friendly paddock, where fans can see the cars up close and meet the drivers. Each afternoon, fans will see the cars on the track of the Schenley Park 2.33-mile road/street course circuit in exhibition sessions. The paddock will be at the top of Schenley Drive near Phipps Conservatory, alongside the race circuit at the intersection with Panther Hollow Road.

Vintage Indy
The Vintage Indy is dedicated to the history and preservation of Indianapolis Championship Cars from 1911 through 1999. With the collective efforts of enthusiasts, specialists and professionals, the Registry’s goal is to ensure that these cars are more broadly appreciated and their history correctly preserved for future generations. The Registry represents each individual car’s carefully and accurately documented legacy assembled from museums, collections and individual owners of “The Greatest Cars in Racing”.

Michael Lashmett, Vintage Indy CEO excitedly stated “the members of the Vintage Indy are honored with the invitation to bring these iconic Indianapolis cars to the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, we all acknowledge the history of this storied event and look forward to bringing these historic cars before the throngs of fans along this scenic street course. A first really, the roar of vintage Indy cars in Schenley Park and all for a wonderful charitable cause. I can’t wait to hear the first Offy fire up! This is going to be thrilling for everyone!”

The PVGP is one of four stops scheduled around the country in 2021: Indianapolis Motorspeedway in May, Road America/Wisconsin in June, Pittsburgh in July and the WorldWide Technology Raceway in Madison, IL in August.
