A NEW TYPE OF AUTOMOTIVE EVENT
Westchester County has a long and storied history with the automobile dating back to the turn of the last century when in 1908 it first hosted the Briarcliff Grand Prix in which autos of the day traveled a 30 mile lap around the county ten times. It was said that over three hundred thousand spectators lined the route as people came out to see these new-fangled machines. It is in this spirit that Hudson Valley Car Week will commence with the inaugural running of the Peekskill Vintage Grand Prix. This automotive event will have vintage cars (1967 and older) traverse a 2 mile route that will take them through downtown Peekskill as well as along the beautiful waterfront showcasing the spectacular Hudson River.
Our Chamber never tires of promoting and supporting everything the Gateway Region offers, and to that end we are proud to be the driving force behind the inaugural Peekskill Vintage Grand Prix.
