Project Yellow Light Race on April 25 at Grand Prix New York

Grand Prix New York (GPNY) will host the Second Annual 90-minute endurance race to benefit Project Yellow Light and local Greenwich students are enlisting community support.

Greenwich High School senior Ben Albano, the 2013 MAZDASPEED Challenge Summer Series Champion as well as the 2012 Rookie of the Year, along with his brothers Addison, a junior at Brunswick School and Austen, a freshman at King, are organizing the race and signing up participants from high schools throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties.

The race will take place tomorrow, April 25, at 7 p.m. at Grand Prix New York. Project Yellow Light is an an organization that promotes awareness of the dangers of distracted driving. The National Safety Council has designated April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. States have taken up the cause and are implementing tougher laws to discourage distracted driving.

State Rep. Fred Camillo (R-151), who was recently appointed to the state’s Distracted Driving Prevention Task Force, commented, “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.”

As many as 20 teams of two to five 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 corporate sponsors: Teddy’s Transportation, Fresh Green Light Driving School, Allstate — The Wright Insurance Agency, LLC, Petro Heating and Air Conditioning, Gerber Group, Skip Barber Racing School and Aux Délices Foods.
