The VSCCA is back at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix with two race groups! Schenley Park, with its hay bales and stonewalled street course, is recognized as the ideal circuit to race and showcase them.

  • The Pre-War Group will include all pre-1941 cars, MGTC models (1945 -1950), as well as 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 7’s.
  • VSCCA members who wish to participate in the other groups managed by the PVGP are encouraged to do so.
  • All entrants should plan to arrive by noon on Friday, July 24 for to get situated, teched, and all new drivers to the PVGP must participate in a course walk from 4-5:30.
  • Not to be missed is the annual “Forbes Ave of Speed” Race Car Parade (Friday July 24, 2020 – 6:30 to 8:30 PM) which culminates in a drivers reception and a car show on Forbes Avenue in Squirrel Hill.

Cars eligible for these two groups will be evaluated for inclusion by VSCCA. All racers in these and other groups will, however, apply through the PVGP.

VSCCA entrants with out of date SFI safety belts can be accommodated in 2020, providing the belts are not more than 5 years old and in otherwise acceptable condition.

Transponders:

Participants without transponders will not be timed; however, the timing & scoring team has indicated that they should be able to identify the first three finishers in a group even if none of the top three finishers has  a transponder.  However, they would not be able to score numerous cars without transponders.

PVGP Winners Circle awards:

The normal PVGP Winners Circle awards will be applied for each race group, however, there will be special recognition for one participant in each VSCCA managed group.
