For 4 hours, you can roar through the streets of Boston and help improve the lives of kids 

This event takes place Saturday October 9 at noon, but I wanted to give you plenty of time to register in case you want to get some racing action in!! YEAH!

The second ever Boston PAL Grand Prix will be an adrenaline pumping thrill-a-minute kart race that brings Boston business together to support the Boston Police Athletic League. Whether you are a driver, sponsor, contributor, volunteer or spectator, everyone is part of the action.

Twenty teams of six drivers will roar through the Cambridge Street area and by city hall plaza in a fast-paced, action packed, 4-hour endurance race. With every team making pit stops for fuel, and changing drivers, just a fraction of a second could mean the difference between leading and winning or being one of the "rest of the pack". Avoiding time-consuming penalties is a key strategy.

After the 4-hour race, the top 6 teams will drive in a thrilling 30-minute final for the title. Trophies will be awarded to the winners - together with the triumph of a podium finish.
