Pittsburgh, PA — The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) and the Vintage Sports Car Club of America (VSCCA) will be joining forces beginning in 2020.
Specifically, the VSCCA will bring its formidable grid of Pre-War cars to race through the streets of Schenley Park for PVGP’s July 24-26 event. It’s a perfect pairing since VSCCA is regarded as the guardian of Pre-War sports cars in North America, and Schenley Park’s stonewalled street course, complete with hay bales, is recognized as an ideal circuit to race and showcase cars from the Pre-War era.
The Pre-War Group will incorporate all pre-1941 cars and will also include MGTC models (1945 -1950) and certain other immediate postwar sporting cars on an individual basis.
The VSCCA will also manage the PVGP’s group for Sports Racers and Formula Cars. This group will reorganize to include Pre-1961 Formula 2, Formula 3 (500cc), Formula Junior, Sports Racing including Modifieds, Pre-1963 1500cc & under and Pre-1963 Lotus 7s. See all race groups.
Cars eligible for both groups will be evaluated for inclusion by VSCCA. All racers in these and other groups must apply for inclusion with the PVGP normal processes, and entry is now open.
2020 will represent the 38th consecutive year of racing through Pittsburgh’s Schenley Park, capping 10 days of racing, car shows, parties and parades that begin with the July 16-19 PVGP Historics.
