The Seaside Le Mans – Race for the Cape Cod Community, set to take place on Sat, Sep 7th ?
On Saturday, September 7th the Davenport Companies will once again transform a portion of Mashpee Commons into a racetrack, for the 19th Annual Seaside Le Mans! Join us to watch as local business-owners and community members compete in the annual four-hour Formula One go-kart race to benefit the Cape Cod community. The race will take place from 12-4pm.
During this free, family-friendly event dozens of local companies will be racing through the streets of Mashpee Commons on a quarter mile track, complete with a foot-bridge (on Market Street, near the fountain & Trevi Cafe) to the infield. Spectators are welcome to view the race from outside the track or from the center infield. There will be free children’s activities, merchandise tents, and music throughout the day.
Visitors are also invited to volunteer at the trackside “Bike Build” where 240 children’s bikes will be assembled, representing the 240 minutes of the race, then donated to 10 local children’s organizations. The Bike Build will be taking place at Mashpee Commons Bandstand.
Over $6.5 million has been raised through sponsorships and matching gifts since the race began in 2001. All proceeds of the event are donated to The Cape Cod Foundation, which distributes 100% of each year’s funds to the designated beneficiaries chosen for the year.
