South Boston

In 2016, some South Boston waterfront drivers will ignore any traffic signals they see and slam on their accelerators

The speediest of them all will take home cash prizes. The Verizon IndyCar Series today announced a race along the roads of the waterfront and Fort Point over Labor Day weekend in 2016: The Grand Prix of Boston will feature an 11-turn, 2.25-mile temporary street course winding around the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center in the Seaport District. The event will mark the first time an Indy car race has been contested in the area. The races will then become an annual event at least through 2020.
