As if the appearance of the new M5 was not enough, now you can discuss BMW’s technical developments with Roundel columnist and past BMW CCA executive vice-president Mark Jon Calabrese! Watch the vintage races in Schenley Park with a bonafide Roundel rock star!
Also in attendance will be ALMS driver Jonathan Summerton, Mike Renner of the BMW Performance Center, BMW CCA President Bruce Hazard, executive vice-president Steve Johnson, North Atlantic Regional Vice President John Sullivan, and North Central Regional Vice President Mike Lingenfelter. The PVGP is sponsored by Liberty Mutual Insurance, Sonax, Spaten, BMW of Pittsburgh, and the BMW CCA. Our Allegheny Chapter hosts this great event and has laid out a host of activities across two weekends.
Activities begin on July 14–15 at Pittsburgh International Race Complex (PIRC), formerly BeaverRun Race track. There will be a multi-marque German car corral overlooking the front straight at PIRC with catered lunch, beverages, and corral parking. The featured races include a BMW Club race and vintage racing sanctioned by VRG.
The 30th Anniversary of the Vintage Races at Schenley Park (July 20–22) will feature “Sharks in the Park” at exciting turn 13 of the circuit. The Schenley Park weekend of events kicks off on Friday, July 20, with a scenic driving tour and welcome reception. On Saturday and Sunday, in addition to our “Sharks in the Park”, there will be over 2000 cars in an international car show plus a catered lunch and all-day hospitality tent courtesy of BMW CCA’s Social Partner Spaten beer.
