Local startup Parking Panda will now provide the parking spots for attendees to this year’s Grand Prix, which takes place August 31 through September 2.

The Baltimore Grand Prix, organized this year by Andretti Sports Marketing, has no official parking lots for the event. Parking Panda’s Mark McTamney “did a lot of work to create [the] partnership,” says co-founder Nick Miller. For every person who comes to Parking Panda’s site via the Baltimore Grand Prix website, Andretti Sports receives an affiliate fee, says Miller.
“It’s a win-win,” he says. “It gets us the exposure and the traffic and people coming to use our service, [and] they get a better experience for their customers, who don’t have to deal with horrible parking issues that surrounded that event last year.”

It was during the 2011 Baltimore Grand Prix that Parking Panda officially launched, with some 100 drivers using the service to locate parking downtown. Since, Parking Panda has hired three more employees in addition to co-founders Miller and Adam Zilberbaum, raised three-quarters of a million dollars in angel and seed funding, expanded into Washington, D.C., and will be expanding to San Francisco in the next month.
Miller says there are “several thousand spaces” listed through Parking Panda for the Grand Prix, and the Baltimore Parking Authority is also working with the peer-to-peer parking service to allow people to reserve spots in the city’s parking garages. Parking spots range in price from $3 to $30.
