Come Celebrate Audi as Marque of the Year at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix July 16-25, 2010. The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has selected Audi as the 2010 Marque of the Year. Audi has a rich racing heritage and was the Marque of the Year in 2000. For the past 27 years, the Race Weekend has been the focus of the PVGP and no other event in the country can compare to the uniqueness of Schenley Park. Each year we feature a car as our Marque and in 2010 that honor goes to Audi.
We are inviting all Audi owners to attend regardless of year or model!
We expect to have over one hundred Audis lining the fairways of the Schenley Park Golf Course. Some very rare cars from private collectors and special interest enthusiast cars from across the country will be on display.
With over 250,000 spectators, the PVGP is the nation's largest vintage race and the only one run on city streets! This festive event is part of the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix VSCCA sanctioned race. The 2.33 mile circuit runs through the Schenley Park golf course. The 175 race car participants conduct time trials on Saturday and race in seven classes on Sunday.
