    July 10–24: Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix

    You won’t want to miss the annual BMW gathering at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix. The PVGP is sponsored by Spaten, Liberty Mutual Insurance, Sonax, BMW of Pittsburgh, and the BMW CCA. The Allegheny Chapter has laid out a host of activities across two weekends. Activities begin on July 16–17 at BeaveRun Race track. There will be a multi-marque German car corral overlooking the front straight at BeaveRun with catered lunch, beverages, and corral parking. The featured races include a BMW Club race and vintage racing sanctioned by VRG.

    The highlight of our Schenley Park weekend will be a celebration of the tenth anniversary of 5er Fest. In cooperation with the mye28.com special-interest group, we extend a special welcome to all 5 Series owners. In addition to special prizes and events, 5er Fest attendees are eligible for a parade lap during race-day opening ceremonies.

    The Schenley Park weekend begins on Thursday, July 21, with a driving school offered by BeaveRun Motorsports Complex. The next day, winding roads north of the Steel City will be the venue of our driving tour through southwestern Pennsylvania. Destination: Casa Narcisi Winery for lunch. On Saturday and Sunday, at historic Schenley Park, there will be a BMW pavilion and corral overlooking Turn Thirteen—one of the most desirable vantage points. After an absence last year, BMW 2002s will once again return to the track.

    I am planning to go, just

    I am planning to go, just signed up! :eek:) My friends Peter and April are coming along as well. I hope to come in my E30 M3, but if the weather is bad or too hot, I might bring another car. Maybe my E39 540 M Sport.

    Paul from Charolettesville are you still planning to come? Can we PM in this new website? I would like to give you my phone number.

    Any of you planning to be at PVGP

    Paul? CRKrieger? MGarrison? Are you planning to be at PVGP? I am going to be there all day Saturday and hoping to go to the Hofbrauhaus for dinner Saturday evening and it would be great if we got a lot of people to go.

    Since these forums are now a bit of a disaster I will post my cell number here. 302-985-7803.

    I plan on being in my E30 M3, but if it is just too hot I might bring my 540i M Sport (it is fiverfest after all). The a/c doesn't work in the M3. :eek:(

    Hope to see some of you there!

    Not me, but maybe moosehead -

    Not me, but maybe moosehead - haven't seen him back on these forums since the switch, you might try pm-ing him on the other forums he's on, although I forget which - might search member list on mye28, bf.c, or bimmerfest, or google moosehead engineering, see if that'll dig him up.

    Have a good time though, and don't get heat stroke!

    Heat Stroke is right

    It is not looking good for the e30 M3, I don't think I am going to take it. It is just too hot!!! 5 hours round trip on the road in this heat would not be fun.

    I tried finding the shop Paul works for in VA, but not much luck. I will try googling him! :eek:)

    Only a guess, but no reason to think he wouldn't use the same name...
