2011 Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Plans?

Since it is a scant 190 miles from home to the event I was thinking of headed out there. I see Pittstop MINI is listed as one of involved clubs but the Pittstop site has like nothing.

So whats the deal?

When to arrive, where to stay, what to see, what to do, when to be where?

Thanks!

I e-mailed them last year about their plans. Still waiting to hear back from them. Maybe you will have better luck that I did Nathan.

It's been 21 years since I've been to that event. As I remember it is a very nice one. Gotta love vintage racers on real roads.

Hi guys!
I think the club officers and the dealership are still working on plans. I'll try to see what I can find out.

This is what happened last year:
We met at the West End Overlook around 8ish. Google Maps Here we had donuts/juice/coffee and each got our picture taken in front of the cityscape.

Around 10ish we lined up and were police escorted straight to Shenley Park. We all parked in the MINI section then around noon we had a catered lunch. Some prizes/announcements and then we were on our own for the rest of the day to look around the show/races. (Events end around 4 each day.)

Sunday was 'come/go as you please', we can park in the same place as Saturday and then mingle around the car show.

Official PVGP links: Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association and Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Association | International Car Show at Schenley (Note: It doesn't look like this page has been updated since last year.)


ps. you might want to post this on 'the other forums' too, i think more of us are over there more regularly.

My friend and I are doing the Kick-Off Rallye on July 10th in my as-of-yet undelivered MCS. If you don't know what TSD Rallies are check out these guys. They're local and do a great job.

If you do decide to participate, just remember, "It's not a race, it's a Rally!"

Have you done the rallies before? We do them with BRMSCC in my MINI occasionally. We're not doing the kick-off one though.

Now that really brings back memories and sounds like fun. Pitt is not close for me however.

Is anything close for you? Other than the back 40.

Remember driving your MINI is fun.

By close, I mean doable in a day. The wife does not like to have to take care of the back 40 all buy herself (can't really blame her), so MOTD is normally my big trip of the year.

Doing a TSD rally in a MINI would be a blast. Can you still get those clip boards with the two stop watches attached to the top?
