Larkspur, Calif. (October 28, 2021) – The Velocity Invitational brings a luxury food, wine and motorsports festival to WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, Calif. on November 12-14. The family friendly event features catered local cuisine and food trucks while wine, spirit and champagne pavilions offer samples and signature cocktails. Over 30 vendors will be present at the event, which will also include live entertainment and hospitality venues throughout the weekend.
“The Velocity Invitational is about more than just the cars,” said event founder Jeff O’Neill. “We put together an event that is approachable and fun for everyone. We created an environment where visitors will find and enjoy things they are passionate about and hopefully discover or learn something new along the way. Whether you’re into food, wine or motorsports, we have something for you.”
In the Sip & Savor pavilion Presented by Taylor Farms, wine tastings are provided by labels like Robert Hall and Bernardus, while artwork by former Formula 1 driver Stefan Johansson adorns the walls.
