About Us

Who Are We?

We are a group of road racing fans, drivers, and sponsors who, along with their friends and family, want to make a difference in our community by combining two passions: a love of motorsports and a commitment to Seattle Children’s Hospital.

We use corporate and private sponsorship to underwrite the cost of the race cars so that one hundred percent of the donations go to help the children in the pediatric Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Seattle Children’s Hospital. As you can see by our history shown below – we have years of success.

In 2010 Team Seattle joined with with Dempsey Racing to field two Mazda RX8 race cars raising over $500,000 for the CICU at Seattle Children’s Hospital. That relationship continued into 2011 with the team raising $250,000 for the hospital. 2012 marked the 2nd year that Team Seattle partnered Dempsey Racing and with a goal to exceed the landmark 2010 number and continue to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital. In a touch economic climate that goal wasn’t hit but over quarter of a million had been raised.

The 2013 campaign is a turning point for Team Seattle. With the goal to renew the orignal model of using Seattle based drivers, driving for Team Seattle, raising money for a Seattle based benificiary (Seattle Children’s Hospital), the team will be expanding the Grand-Am experience further. For the first time ever, Team Seattle will be participating in both the Continental Tire Series race at Daytona as well as the historic 24 Hour. This will increase the number of drivers as well as expand the opportunities for sponsors and partners alike and rekindle the Seattle focus that has been lacking in the past few races.
