Boston PAL Grand Prix is a road race on the streets around Boston City Hall Plaza, where teams of six drivers go head-to-head in a four hour endurance race, all to raise money for the Boston Police Athletic League. This year feature 15 teams screaming around hairpin turns, through a couple clever chicanes and down some pretty darn fast straight-aways.
To keep the playing field level, each team is issued one of F1 Boston’s Rimo 9hp karts for race day – but hey, you’re doing 40 mph on a tight course – it’s a blast. Teams are made up from companies around the Boston area who have a bunch of fun and helped out a great cause.
All told, it raised over $150,000 for the PAL programs. For those not familiar, the Boston Police Athletic League is a non-profit organization dedicated to the positive development of the youth of Boston.
