Kart Kings

Feed your need for speed at the PAL Grand Prix

Full_grand_prix

Boston and Monaco aren't often confused. 
 
One is a luxurious tax-free playground for rich people who speak French. The other is completely awesome. 
 
But we have to admit, they're on to something with this whole tearing-through-the-city-in-race-cars thing, now recreated in Boston for charity at the PAL Grand Prix
 
Driving in Boston is a challenge in itself, but nothing quite like this. As part of a racing team of six drivers, you'll be piloting an open-seat, no suspension race kart through a F1-style track in the Seaport district. 
 
And while a top speed of 45 mph might not seem like much, it will be if you lose.
 
Then again, a slower pace has its benefits. While the cars whiz by, you can hit the food and drink circuit, passing through The Sausage Guy, Area Four, Shake Shack, and Tavern Road before taking a pit stop at the beer and wine garden

If you hear someone speaking French, you've got the wrong place.
