Boston Turns Into a Grand Prix on September 15

Boston PAL

Next Saturday, Boston is clearing the streets to prepare for the return of European-style kart racing for the fourth annual Boston Police Athletic League (PAL) Grand Prix.

PALís youth programs are designed to help young people develop self-esteem, leadership skills and a sense of belonging, while improving school performance, resolving conflicts and occupying their out-of-school-time productively.

The endurance race next weekend will transform the Seaport District into a race track on September 15 from 12 to 4 p.m. Participants will drive karts that have an open seat, no suspension and are just an inch off the ground so you really get the feeling of driving a Formula 1 race car that can reach speeds more than 45 miles per hour.

Whether you come out to participate or watch, it should be an exciting day! (Spectators can watch the karts zip by on Seaport Boulevard between Northern Avenue and Wharf Road).

Kart team sponsorships are available for up to six drivers for $10,000 while individual sponsorships are $1,750.

For more information or to register as a driver, call (617) 699-7099 or visit www.bostonpal.org.
