The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix has raised millions of dollars for the Autism Society and includes two weeks of activities in late July. It ends with races through Schenley Park.

"Our priority is to protect the health and safety of the fans, racers, volunteers and sponsors involved. We care deeply about this significant event and arrived at this decision after much consideration. We understand how disappointing this will be to our dedicated volunteers, racers, sponsors, participants and charities," said Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix chairman James Dolan in a press release.

The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix will return in 2021.

In the meantime, the Waterfront Car Cruise on July 21 and the Countryside Tour to Jamison Farm on July 23 will go on as planned.
