• PVGP: Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix 2014

    10,548 views 3 years ago
    Few events have managed to capture my interest and imagination in recent years like the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. This long-running Grand Prix, currently in its 31st year, is held on the beautiful and historic streets of Pittsburgh's Schenley Park, making it the only North American vintage racing event to be run on genuine city streets. The incredible course features dramatic elevation changes, tight, off-camber hairpins, and bridges over stunning ravines.

    But even beyond racing, the event is attractive as a car show, albeit one that encompasses automotive interests from around the country. The BMW show, held by the Allegheny Valley Chapter BMW CCA (and attended this year by representatives from the National Office) and overlooking two turns of the race course, was one which was particularly exciting, and the activities hosted by the BMW CCA spanned several days. Other shows, too, were spectacular, and between all the attractions, the event consistently draws in upwards of 100,000 spectators.

    But perhaps most impressive of all is PVGP's ability to both create a free-to-attend event, and use sponsorship money to support local charities, including the Autism Society of Pittsburgh and the Allegheny Valley School. And in 31-year history, the event has raised over $3.5 million for two.

    Enjoy the video, and for more PVGP action, check out this raw lap of the PVGP course in a BMW M4 with BMW Performance Center driver Mike Renner at the wheel: https://www.youtube.com/wat......
