It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s family-friendly and it’s FREE!
Mark your calendars for Saturday September 9, 2017 for the 17th Annual Seaside Le Mans –The Race for the Cape Cod Community. The race begins at noon as thousands gather to watch this annual 4-hour endurance race of European-style Formula One race karts driven by local sponsors on a one-quarter mile outdoor track around Mashpee Commons.
The action never stops as teams change drivers, refuel, pass one another and race around corners and along straightaways. The event includes free viewing either trackside or from the infield reached by a pedestrian bridge spanning the racetrack. Music, entertainment and children’s activities combine with the many shops and restaurants of Mashpee Commons to provide every member of the family with something interesting to see or do.
Over the past 16 years, the race has raised more than $5.5 million dollars in sponsorships and matching funds, supporting non-profit organizations on the Cape & Islands.
Unique among fundraisers, The Davenport Companies underwrites the cost of the event, allowing 100% of sponsor dollars and donations to go directly to the beneficiaries.
