Once again the Allegheny Chapter of the BMW CCA will host a trackside corral and hospitality area at Schenley Park in Pittsburgh as part of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix, July 19–21.
PVGP is a unique historic racing festival held on the city streets in and around Schenley Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The event has been hosted in the Steel City since 1984, and has grown from a one-day gathering to a multi-day festival of races, car shows, and automotive events which benefit the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Charities.
Attendees of the PVGP Schenley Park race weekend are greeted with a 2,000-vehicle car show with food and vendors across the Bob O’Conner Golf Course where spectators, usually numbering close to 200,000, overlook the races—now featuring a total of over 180 historic race cars—held on the city streets below.
The BMW CCA’s portion of PVGP has grown, too; the event is no longer a two-day trackside corral, but a complete four-day program that offers something for every BMW enthusiast and includes driving tours, dinners, and charity hot-lap rides thanks to the BMW Performance Center.
The BMW CCA’s trackside corral and hospitality area on German Hill is the highlight of the event. Over 250 BMWs assemble on the hillside overlooking the exciting Turn 13. In addition, a wonderful lunch is served on Saturday and Sunday under the large trackside pavilion area. (Note: Meals tickets must be purchased through registration in advance and are not available for walk-ups.)
