The 40th Annual Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix is the nation’s largest vintage street race with 10 days of racing, car shows, parties, parades, and motorsport events. This year the event celebrates a 40th annual race through the streets of Pittsburgh’s Schenley Park.

If you haven’t experienced real vintage street racing, then this event is for you. Spectators attend the car shows and watch the vintage racing from the beautiful Bob O’Conner Golf Course. The races honor that of the origins of sports car road racing in the 40’s and 50’s at Watkins Glen and Elkhart Lake. The PVGP in Schenley Park remains the nation’s only vintage race held on city streets.

The PVGP races through Schenley Park are considered by many drivers to be the most challenging race course worldwide. With 22 turns, 11 elevation changes, approximately 100 telephone poles, an expanse of stone wall, and numerous manhole covers, it’s no wonder the 2.33-mile circuit tests driving skills and entertains crowds.

The races start at 8:30 am each day and run until approximately 5:00 pm. See Race Schedule. Car Show participants can enter the show grounds beginning at 9:30 am. To register for the International Car please visit our Registration Home.

The mission of the event is to produce a world-class vintage automotive event raising funds for autistic and intellectually/developmentally disabled individuals in the Pittsburgh region. Because of the generous support from our volunteers and sponsors we have donated over $6 million since 1983.
