Included in the McLaren line-up is the 1996 McLaren F1 GT12R that competed in the 1996 Le Mans. It was the most successful car that year, and was a four-time winner in the 1996 BPR Global Sportscar Championship. The team will also feature six additional McLaren race cars, including Ayrton Senna’s 1990 F1 World Championship winning car, the McLaren MP4/5B-07, which won six out of 16 races that year, along with Alain Prost’s MP4/2B-3, which won the 1985 F1 World Championship. Several other McLaren F1 roadcars will be in attendance as well.

As America’s go-to rally experts, Velocity International is delighted to welcome DirtFish Rally School this year. Owner of the Seattle-based School, Steve Rimmer will supply six of the sport’s most famous cars. Those cars range from the outrageous Group B Lancia Rally 037 and MG Metro 6R4 through some of Subaru’s best Imprezas, and onto the Peugeot 206 WRC that dominated the World Rally Championship in the early Noughties.

The stunning collection of rally cars will be driven by two members of motorsport’s best-known family: Alister McRae and his son Max. Alister has won championships across the world, while his son Max – the third generation of this incredible Scottish family – is just embarking on his career.

“It’s an honor to have such historic and cutting-edge race cars attend our event from all eras,” said Velocity Invitational Founder Jeff O’Neill. “It’s my goal to have the best of the best on display at Velocity Invitational, and the racing pedigree of these race cars will be right at home in the pits and on the track this year.”

The Zenvo TSR-S, a Danish hypercar, will also be on display with its active multi-axis Centripetal rear wing that pivots depending on steering input to increase downforce to the required wheel.
