COATESVILLE — Thousands of people united in the city to celebrate the fifth Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix.
People from across the Mid-Atlantic region came to the valley for the day’s festivities, which City Manager James Logan said the Grand Prix is the biggest community event of the year, excluding local school and student annual celebrations.
“It was a great event,” Logan said. “It’s a big event. It’s a fast event.”
Action began at 8 a.m.
The crux of the Grand Prix began at 9:15 a.m. when the drivers and owners of more than 50 vintage cars dating from 1900 to 1975, and vintage motorcycles from 1930 to 1975, competed individually while driving through a course which ran 2.2 miles through city streets.
Milwaukee Mile Sponsors included Brian Hoskins Ford and Coatesville Youth Initiative, said Lisa Thomas, event manager. She noted that, despite COVID, sponsorship for the Grand Prix doubled in 2021 compared to in 2019.
Organizers canceled the city’s annual Grand Prix in 2020 due to the pandemic shutdown, as previously reported.
“In addition to the Mid-Atlantic area,” Thomas said, “there were vehicles from New York State, Massachusetts and Virginia.”
Several thousand people attended the Grand Prix in Coatesville on Saturday, Thomas said.
“There were so many favorite moments from the day,” said Thomas, who works at Mid-Atlantic Equestrian Services. “The best part about the day was that there were so many people getting together in the City of Coatesville after the impact of Hurricane Ida and how many cars came to support the City of Coatesville, that was really the best.”
The Grand Prix is set to return next year, a few hours after dawn, on Saturday, September 17.

Sponsorship Opportunities Open for Coatesville’s Biggest Regional Event September 18
COATESVILLE, PA — As community events re-emerge after year-long shutdowns, the City of Coatesville’s biggest attraction, the Coatesville Invitational Vintage Grand Prix, will return Saturday, September 18, and the City has engaged event and sports marketing professional Lisa Thomas as Event & Sponsorship Director to manage its growth.
“As the region is opening up after COVID-19, the entire Coatesville community is looking forward to one of the country’s only Vintage Grand Prix events,” says Thomas. “In addition to featuring incredible vintage cars and motorcycles winding through the downtown streets of Coatesville, the event provides the opportunity to showcase the City’s exciting transformation. We invite interested individuals, organizations and companies to get involved with sponsorship opportunities at every level. We also hope to engage more of our local small businesses while building on our relationships with area organizations including Coatesville’s 2nd Century Alliance, the Western Chester County Chamber, and the Coatesville Rotary. This is an event that shines a spotlight on Coatesville, and it provides the entire community a sense of pride for their city.”
