Grand Prix New York (GPNY) will host a 90-minute endurance race to benefit Project Yellow Light, an organization that promotes awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. Greenwich High School Students Ben Albano, a GPNY Junior League Champion and MAZDASPEED Challenge driver, along with classmate Beau Dealy are organizing the race and soliciting participants from high schools throughout Fairfield, CT and Westchester, NY. The race will take place on June 14th at 7:00 pm at Grand Prix New York, 333 North Bedford Road in Mt. Kisco, NY.
As many as 20 teams of 2 to 5 drivers will race to complete the most laps in the allotted time, competing for prizes which include seats in the Skip Barber Teen Safety and Survival School. Entry fees of $100 per team are fully tax deductible, and all proceeds go directly to Project Yellow Light, thanks to Grand Prix New York and generous sponsors 12 Beverage, Birdie's Auto Spa, The Coughlin Group, Fresh Green Light Driving School, Skip Barber Racing School, Rand Insurance, and U.S. Pavement.
“Project Yellow Light’s mission to encourage young people to stop driving distracted is immensely important, and Grand Prix is the perfect venue to help raise awareness and support,” said GPNY Vice President Nat Mundy.
