Cool 2018 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (July 14-15, 2018)

OFFICIAL [email protected] INFORMATION

Here we go again... PITTSBURGH VINTAGE GRAND PRIX! Fifth anniversary! Here are the details. I'll update this post if anything changes.


Registration is now open for the event. The cost is $35.00 per car (plus a $2.50 credit card processing fee). Read below first, then click here: Register!

IMPORTANT: After you register, please post here so that I can add you to the attendee list. There is no Car Club Affiliation field like in previous years, so the attendee list is how I'll get a count for the organizers to block off space for us. You'll get an email confirmation, but nothing will be sent to you in the mail and you don't need to bring any paperwork to the event (despite what the registration site says). They'll have your information at the gate when you arrive.

The organizers have asked that we all register by July 5th (I know the site says July 12th, but we're special) so they have time to map out the different club areas. I'll post a reminder a couple of days before then. Just to be clear, there are no refunds and the event is rain or shine. Also, if you absolutely can't preregister, you can pay at the gate on Saturday ($40 instead of $35). However, there's a possibility that there won't be enough room for you to park in our designated S2KI area, so I recommend preregistering.

Caravan and Arrival

The main event for us will take place on Saturday, July 14th. The gates open at 9:30am. Walt (cilocar) and I will be there waiting to direct you to our area and line up the cars. Caravanning in is the best way to streamline the arrival process. If everyone could get there at the same time, or at least in a couple of groups, it would be much easier to get everyone parked. As we get closer to the event, I'll post information about a caravan meeting spot. It will most likely be the same place as last year, but I need to confirm that nothing has changed. You definitely don't have to caravan in. If you're preregistered and you've posted here that you're coming, we'll save a spot for you. I would still suggest getting there as early as possible though, just in case the Subaru parade gets lost in a vape cloud and accidentally parks in our zone.

I know some of you are planning on going both days (myself included), but on Sunday you can come whenever you want. No caravan necessary. Sundays are much less crowded, so even though we won't have a special blocked off section, you'll probably be able to park together anyway.

Lunch, etc.

You can bring a picnic lunch if you'd like or you can buy food there. The food for sale is county fair style - think Italian sausage sandwiches and funnel cakes sold from a trailer. This is a BYOB event, if you're into that kind of thing. We've been approved to put up a pop-up tent (just one - I'll bring it) for shade, probably up near the tree line where we've been in prior years. I recommend bringing lawn chairs, sunscreen, and plenty of water. It gets hot out there! And of course, wear comfy shoes.

Here's some additional info about the PVGP rules and such: General Event Information

Hotel Suggestions

For those travelling from out of town for this event, I have two hotel suggestions:

Home2 Suites by Hilton Pittsburgh - McCandless, PA
Fairfield Inn & Suites Pittsburgh North/McCandless

These hotels aren't the closest hotels to the event, but they are the closest hotels to my house, which will serve as a home base throughout the weekend. I'm happy to give hotel suggestions for other parts of Pittsburgh - just send me a PM.

If you're new or want to relive the memories, here are the threads from previous years:

That should be everything! Please let me know if you have any questions at all. Can't wait to see yinz!
