MINI Track Rides are one of the the best ways to see our event – right from the track! In its 10th year, the MINI Track Rides, sponsored by Phil DiLucente, is a huge success and one of our most exciting sponsorship opportunities. Three new race-equipped MINI Coopers are custom wrapped with sponsor logos and showcased on the track and at all Grand Prix events. Best of all, as a sponsor, you are able to put your guests into these cars to experience a hot lap on the actual race tracks. Vince Longo Jr. and his skilled drivers take riders around the track for an experience and view you can only get from inside a car on the track.
There is a Track Rides hospitality tent in Schenley Park where guests can eat and drink while they wait for their rides. The MINI Track Rides Tent is located at the top of the Serpentine turn and offers one of the best vantage points to watch the weekend’s races.
Cars can be made available for sponsors to display at their locations before and during Race Week. The PVGP can issue gift certificates ahead of the event so that they can be given away as promotions or prizes for customers.
There is VIP room for the Track Rides at Pitt Race in the new Timing Tower and it is reserved for sponsors and guests! An air-conditioned area with food, refreshments, beer and a view of the track! Email Vince Longo Jr. for sponsorship opportunities.
Thanks to the tireless efforts of Vince and his team, new sponsors are added each year. MINI of Pittsburgh remains the car sponsor of the Track Rides. Phillip DiLucente has once again stepped up to a full sponsorship – thanks Phil! Signs By Tomorrow will handle the immense task of wrapping all three MINIs. We want to welcome back all the sponsors below.
Our new location at the top of the Serpentine, in Schenley Park has worked out great. The MINI Track Rides Tent offered a great vantage point to watch the weekend’s races while also becoming our entry point onto the track for all of our rides.
The tent is hosted by Kate Longo and she provides the sponsors with plenty of food and drinks provided by the Post Office Deli. Sponsors get VIP treatment to an exclusive venue to watch the weekends activities by special invitation.
If your organization or group is interested in purchasing some rides, please e-mail Vince Longo Jr. for details
