a message from Bernard Martin, Founder & Managing Director, The Cortile at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix
The Cortile will not be held in 2020. But do Make plans to join us again July 24-25, 2021!
We tried folks. In late April the Cortile Volunteer team held a series of meetings to discuss how we might be able to safely hold an event. We formulated plans to eliminate the buffet lunch inside the clubhouse, park the cars farther apart and limit the amount of set up that would be done that could impact the health and safety of our volunteer team, judges and participants.
As time went on we had more discussions with our sponsors, judges, and long time participants to the show. The overall consensus was that an overwhelming percentage of people who put on the event where not going to be attending.
It became very clear to us as team that it would be logistically impossible to hold the Cortile.
Not only would there be no money for the PVGP charities, it would also have been a complete financial loss.
There was no break even.
By late April, we had a conference call with our volunteer team and the PVGP. The team voted unanimously that we would postpone all of our plans until 2021 to feature Lancia. Again, we could not hold the Cortile in 2020 and instead would put all of our plans on hold to feature Lancia 2021. We're hoping you can rally behind our efforts geared toward next year. Help us make it success!
We apologize for our delay in letting you know. We wanted to wait to make our announcement until after the PVGP announced their decision. That happened today.
We hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe over the next year. We will see you next year when we are featuring Lancia!!
