07081908

Pittsburgh’s Bob OConnor Golf Course at Schenley Park will be taken over with 2,500 vintage cars as part of the international show and road race. The main gate at Schenley Drive and Forbes Avenue intersection opens each day at 9:30 AM and cars are displayed until 5:00 PM. Event held rain or shine.  200,000 spectators fill the golf course and surrounding streets to experience car shows and vintage racing honoring that of the origins of sports car road racing in the 40’s and 50’s. The races through Schenley Park are considered by many to be one of the most challenging race courses. 22 turns, almost a dozen elevation changes,  telephone poles,  stone wall and manhole covers make the the 2.33 mile circuit entertaining to watch and difficult to navigate.

This is PVGP‘s main event in their 2 week long celebration of automobilia!
