MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- Mount Kisco's Grand Prix New York will host the second annual 90-minute endurance race to benefit Project Yellow Light, an organization that promotes awareness of the dangers of distracted driving on Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m.
As many as 20 teams of two to five drivers will race to complete the most laps in the allotted time, competing for prizes that 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.
The event is organized by Greenwich High School students Ben Albano, the 2013 MazdaSpeed Challenge Summer Series Champion and 2012 Rookie of the Year, and his brothers, Addison and Austen. The Albano brothers are soliciting high school participants throughout Fairfield, Conn. and Westchester.
“This is a great way to help raise awareness within the teen community of the dangers of distracted driving. This event, in coordination with the nationally recognized efforts of Project Yellow Light, is complementary to what we are doing at the legislative level here in Connecticut," Connecticut state Rep. Fred Camillo said in a statement. "It is a perfect marriage, and Ben’s credibility as a professional racecar driver gives him a unique voice among his peers.”
