The PVGP has announced that BMW will not only be the Marque of the Year at this year’s Pittsburgh Vintage Grans Prix, but they will also serve as the host for the BMW Car Club of America’s Oktoberfest from July 9 through 15. BMW CCA is bringing their largest annual gathering – with 1,000 enthusiasts and 500 BMWs expected.
Each year, the BMW CCA holds its preeminent national celebration of all things BMW in a different location around the country. It is the ultimate motorsport family reunion, including parties, banquets, vendors, track days, autocrosses, rallies, a concours and more! 2018 is also the 50th Anniversary of the BMW 2002 in North America, so the PVGP promises dozens of them on the track both weekends, at their race week events and on the fairways of Schenley Park.
There will be something for every BMW enthusiast. The Historics at Pittsburgh International Race Complex on July 6-8 will have two BMW Race Groups with 100 Bimmers expected on track. O’Fest participants will return to Pitt Race throughout the week for track events, an autocross, car control clinics and other events. O’Fest will also feature a TSD rally, gymkhana, driving tours, receptions and banquets. If that’s not enough, participants will also join the Grand Prix during the week for multiple car shows, a concours, a Tune-Up Party and a Jet Center Party before convening at Schenley Park for Race Weekend on July 14-15 where 500 owners will park trackside to watch BMWs participate in the vintage races and celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the iconic BMW 2002.
