Many thanks to BMWCCA, both the national organization and the local Allegheny Chapter for hosting an incredible O’Fest during the 2018 Grand Prix. There were Bimmers everywhere during the week and over 750 at Schenley Park. The club set the all-time record for Marque fundraising with a $126,500 donation! Together with the Pittsburgh BMW dealers and the national BMW CCA, the Allegheny Club Chapter has raised an astounding $425,000 for the Grand Prix charities!

According to BIMMERLIFE, the BMW Car Club of America’s Spring /Summer magazine “the Allegheny Chapter’s annual gathering at the PVGP is one of the most memorable events of the year. There are several top-notch parties as well, including a jet-setter party that ranks with some of the finest in the country. Over the past 10 years, the chapter’s activities have raised over $350,000 for the PVGP charities.” Click here for a PDF of the recent article.

PVGP 2021 Race Weekend

Friday, July 23

Join the Allegheny Chapter of the BMW CCA for a drive to the interior of Western Pennsylvania, featuring interesting local history. Guests from out of town are encouraged to join our chapter for a tour of the beautiful Fort Ligonier and Donegal areas. Glen is the drive master and he will not disappoint! After experiencing some of the finest rural roads in the area, we’ll visit Fort Ligonier, which was a fortification chosen by the British army in 1758 that overlooked the Loyalhanna Creek.  It was the last in a string of fortifications along the newly cut Forbes Road that would ultimately stretch from Philadelphia to the site of French Fort Duquesne, the ultimate objective of the Forbes Campaign.  When Fort Duquesne fell to the British army in late November of 1758, construction of a new fort, Fort Pitt, began, and the land on which it rose was named Pittsburgh.

Admission to Fort Ligonier is $12 for adults and $10 for senior citizens (62+).  Veterans and Law Enforcement are free. Find out more about how Fort Ligonier made Pittsburgh possible.  Even if you have no particular interest in the local history, this is a well-done and fascinating presentation. Then we’ll drive a short distance to Out of the Fire café in Donegal for lunch.  This quaint, privately-owned restaurant offers remarkable cuisine and always rolls out the red carpet for car clubs. You will be back at your hotel by 4:40 PM, in plenty of time to prepare for the Friday evening festivities.

A donation of $20 per car will be accepted. The tour will leave from The Doubletree Hotel in Greentree at 9:00.

The DoubleTree Hotel in Green Tree will be hosting a cookout featuring Angus burgers, hot dogs, Portabella burgers, Pasta salad, chips, pretzels, cookies, and soft drinks.
