The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix 2015 was held July 10-19 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. An estimated crowd of more than 300,000 spectators visited the 10-day festival that culminated with the 33rd annual races staged on the scenic, yet technically challenging circuit at Schenley Park.
The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix (PVGP) is unique in America, as it’s the only vintage car race staged on public roads amidst the public 456-acre Schenley Park. The 2.33-mile circuit is comprised of 23 turns, complete with two lane roads, bridges with stone walls, curbs, manhole covers and telephone poles. Sports Car Digest’s own Dwight Knowlton led the PVGP parade as Grand Marshal, in addition to creating the stunning poster art for this year’s event. Dwight was amazed by the scope and scale of the 10-day event and looks forward to returning.
A field of more than 150 vintage race cars participated in the 2015 Pittsburgh Vintage GP, grouped together by engine size and year of manufacture in six race classes and two featured races. There were practice warm-up sessions each morning, with qualifying races on Saturday and the featured races staged on Sunday.
Similar to 2013 and 2014, photographer Michael DiPleco also documented the 2015 PVGP, offering the following pictures that not only show the field of historic race cars, but also the unique setting of the Schenley Park track. We split up Michael’s images into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite images, all displayed in the full-width view of Sports Car Digest, while the second gallery can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all 389 photographs.
