This event is presented, sanctioned, and insured by the City of Coatesville, PA.
Eligible vehicles: Race cars and racing motorcycles 1977 and older, passing a safety and technical inspection.
Please note: This event is currently capped at 60 cars and 24 motorcycles.
Vintage race cars and motorcycles will run un-timed lapping sessions by class, with a staggered start. This is not wheel-to-wheel racing, it is an exhibition! The intent is to demonstrate the driving and speed of these historic vehicles to the spectating public.
Controlled passing will be permitted in specific track areas.

Eligible Cars and Motorcycles
All participating vehicles in Groups 1 through 4 must be dedicated race vehicles, built or modified for that purpose. With historic race cars and motorcycles becoming increasingly valuable, vintage racing organizations are finding fewer and fewer vehicles coming out to events. Numerous vintage racing organizations now allow a wide variety of replica race cars and motorcycles.
We will accept period-correct replicas that meet sanctioned vintage racing rules. All vehicles are subject to a vetting process to ensure they match
the historic spirit of the event.
Cars and motorcycles will be grouped by type and performance potential.
Vehicle classes are generally as follows:
Group 1: 1900-1950 Open Wheel Race Cars
Group 2: 1950-1977 4- and 6- Cylinder Race Cars
Group 3: 1950-1977 6- and 8- Cylinder Race Cars
Group 4: 1900-1977 1- to 4- Cylinder Race Motorcycles
Group 5: Nostalgic Street and Race Motorcycles
Please note: The Chief Steward reserves the right to adjust entry class to group vehicles by similar performance potential.
NOTE! This is a rain or shine event!
The Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix is not a “wheel-to-wheel” race, but an individual performance driving event. Your safety is our number one concern. Please abide by these rules and regulations to ensure you have a safe, fun, and exciting experience.
