Grand-Am Race Cars hit the streets of Boston for Starlight Children’s Foundation!

Feel the city shake on May 19th when Grand-Am race cars hit the streets of Boston. The parade starts at 3p.m. Race cars will be touring the streets of Boston ending at Anthony’s Pier 4 restaurant who will host a Reception and exotic car corral from 4:30-7p.m.
 
This event is to raise money specifically for Starlight. One of our GAM drivers, Dave Maynard at 3D Racing, has a child that is a benefactor of Starlight's efforts. This is real stuff that really means a great deal to the families involved.
 
How Can You Participate? Easy.
 
Watch, for the parade there will be four official viewing stations popping up along the route where you can watch the cars and get some schwag from Turner Motorsport's ambassadors.
 
Ride, in one of the cars IN the Parade! We’ll have an auction a few days before the event where you'll be able to bid to ride shotgun in one of the race cars. More on this soon!
 
Attend the Reception, there are three ticket options.
  • Ultimate VIP (limited to 25) gives you the opportunity to display your car next to the official race cars in front of Anthony’s Pier 4. These coveted spots include two tickets to the Reception at Anthony’s Pier 4, two tickets to the Grand Am Memorial Day Race at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT and a schwag bag from the race teams. To top off the night, two of the 25 VIP cars will be chosen to join the race car parade!
  • VIP (limited to 50) this ticket option gets you a special schwag bag and early entry to the Reception at Anthony’s Pier 4 for a meet and greet with some of the Grand-Am drivers who will share photos, autographs and driving tips.
  • General admission (unlimited) welcomes everyone for the Reception following the parade at Anthony's Pier 4. Rub elbows with the drivers, team owners, Turner Motorsport ambassadors and compete in the iRacing Pro-Am challenge.
Purchase Tickets Here We also need 10 volutneers for the day of the event. Please contact the office if you can help set-up (2:00pm-4:00pm) and talk the race car lingo!

STARmazing Race -SAVE THE DATE-June 25th!
