10 Reasons to Join Us on Race Day: Seaside Le Mans – The Race for the Cape Cod Community

Racing 1

It’s fast, it’s fun and it’s free! Come out to Mashpee Commons on Saturday, September 10th from 12:00pm to 4:00pm to experience Seaside Le Mans – the Race for the Cape Cod Community. Race viewing is free, either trackside or from the infield. The race begins at noon, immediately following the opening ceremony. Here are 10 reasons to join us on race day:

  • Racing 3Cheer on your neighbors! As many as 20 teams of 6 drivers each race the European-style Formula 1 Race Karts during the 4-hour endurance race. The drivers represent local business sponsors from across the Cape and New England.
  • Look to the skies! The Seaside Le Mans opening ceremony has featured flyovers 6 different times including F-15 Eagle Fighter Jets from the 102nd Fighter Wing from OTIS Air National Guard Base, US Coast Guard MH60 Jayhawk Helicopters and planes from Cape Air. Who will be overhead this year?
  • Say thank you! Stop by and meet the 2016 Seaside Le Mans beneficiaries to learn more about the organizations and say “thank you!” for all they do for our community. Forty-three different charitable organizations on Cape Cod have been supported by funds raised through the Seaside Le Mans. This year’s beneficiaries are: CapeCodCAN!, Cape Cod Healthcare, Gosnold on Cape Cod, Homeless Not Hopeless and Sail Cape Cod.
  • Bounce, dance and win some money! In addition to the excitement on the track, there will be a plenty of activities to entertain you. Bounce the day away in the inflatables at the Family Fun Zone, dance to the DJ’s tunes and purchase tickets for your chance to win the 50/50 raffle!
  • Save a life! Cape Cod Healthcare’s Bloodmobile will be set up on the track infield. What’s donated on Cape Cod stays on Cape Cod. Please consider donating blood to support your friends and neighbors.  All donors will receive a special Seaside Le Mans gift!
  • Racing 2Be a volunteer and a spectator! Over 100 volunteers work together each year to support the all-day event — from building the track to distributing rally towels and programs. The entire track is built and then disassembled all in one day. Donate your time and talent to the event and receive an official Pit Crew t-shirt!
  • Make a day of it! Seaside Le Mans takes place on a temporary race track within Mashpee Commons. Mashpee Commons has dozens of shops and restaurants to explore. There is something for every member of the family.
  • Eat a hamburger and help your local community! The Bourne/Sandwich Rotary Club runs the grill at the event, donating all profits back to the Seaside Le Mans fund. New this year, Cape Cod Coffee will also be on site with freshly-brewed coffee and homemade donuts!
  • Witness a historic finish! The closest finish in race history was in 2012 when only 3/100ths of a second separated the first and second place teams after the 4-hour race. Will this year’s race be even closer!?
  • Be part of something big. In the past 15 years, the Seaside Le Mans has raised more than $5 million dollars for the Cape Cod community through sponsorships and matching funds. This year’s race is expected to generate more than $600,000 to support the five beneficiaries.
