An Exciting Event that Delivers Results for You and Valuable Funds for Charity
Thank you for your interest in sponsoring the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. Our charitable event is truly unique because it combines the Pittsburgh region’s most exciting summer festival with auto racing thereby creating an exceptional marketing opportunity that also raises a significant amount of funds for individuals with autism and intellectual/developmental disabilities. Organizations must be an official sponsor of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix in order to promote, sell or solicit at all of our events.
In 2019 we will celebrate our 37th year by presenting an unparalleled week of vintage sports car racing and related activities to the delight of nearly 250,000 fans. Race Week kicks off with the PVGP Historic Races at PIRC and a blacktie party fundraiser, continues throughout the week with car shows and concerts and culminates with our traditional vintage races through the streets of Schenley Park on the July 20/21 weekend. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix remains our country’s only vintage sports cars race on city streets and along with Monte Carlo represent the only two such events in the world!
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix offers an extensive selection of sponsorship opportunities for your organization to become part of our celebrated event. Race Weekend at Schenley Park is the perfect venue for you to entertain your customers; throw a party for your employees; raise awareness of your organization; showcase your product; or simply watch the races with friends and family.
