Larkspur, CA – Velocity Invitational will open ticket sales this Friday, April 5, for its 5th annual event with an incredible opportunity to ride along with professional drivers in raucous rally cars during the motorsports festival at Sonoma Raceway, October 4-6. New for 2024, the lineup of DirtFish Rally experiences will include rides in Group B rally cars, as well as modern-day rally cars.
