2020 RACE CANCELLATION

Friends, Supporters and Race Fans,

As always, thank you for your support of Seaside Le Mans and the Cape Cod community.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to start our engines this year – we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the 20th Annual Seaside Le Mans.

With ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 crisis and based on guidance from State officials, we feel this is the only way to proceed during such an unprecedented situation. We know this comes as a disappointment for the beneficiaries, generous sponsors and community of supporters, but we also know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.

We thank you for your patience as we navigated all the possible options and thank you to those that provided input. With the uncertainty of the Commonwealth’s reopening phase dates and limits on public gatherings this was a difficult call to make, especially knowing the beneficiaries need support more than ever right now.

Donations are still welcomed and, as always, 100% of support will go directly to the critical work of the beneficiaries through the Cape Cod Foundation. We aim to help support the missions of our five deserving organizations throughout this year and into plans for next year  – Cape Kid Meals, Cape Cod Military Support Foundation, Cape Cod Baseball League, Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and Cape Cod Healthcare.

In place of the in-person race, we will be amplifying the missions of the beneficiaries through social media and community channels and thanking the sponsors for 20 years of support and more than $7 million raised. We’ll continue to share opportunities to provide support and reach out to sponsors, beneficiaries and volunteers individually.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and please take care of yourselves. We’ll continue to do everything we can to help our community stay safe and connected.

With gratitude,
The Seaside Le Mans team and everyone at The Davenport Companies
