Seaside Le Mans is an annual community event hosted by the Davenport Companies. Twenty teams of six drivers strategize to determine driver order, timing and refueling as they race Formula 1 karts along straightaways, around turns and under a bridge with 10,000+ fans cheering them on.  Seaside Le Mans is a thrilling day filled with twists and turns and, even better, it is all to raise money for the Cape Cod community.

You can be part of the action!

Want to be in the driver’s seat? The teams are made up of drivers from local companies, each sponsoring a full kart, half kart or individual driving spot. Nearly 100 local companies have participated as driving sponsors over the last 17 years.

Have you always dreamed of being part of a pit crew? More than 150 volunteers are needed to build the track, monitor the race course, sell raffle tickets and interact with the crowd.

Do you want to be up close to the race? The event is free to attend. Come watch the opening ceremony, cheer on your neighbors and local business community as they speed around the track, enjoy the food and entertainment and stay to see who is handed the first place trophy!
