GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma - Entertainment

Patriots Jet Team Air Show

The Patriots Jet Team will electrify race fans with a 25-minute air show! The demonstration will feature six-L-39 albatross jets strutting their fast-paced formation flying, choreographed six-jet diamond-formation aerobatic maneuvers and their signature “Tail Slide,” where the aircraft actually slides backwards toward the ground.

Driver Autograph Session

Pirelli World Challenge

Many of North America’s top sports car racers are entered for the Pirelli World Challenge Championships race weekend at Sonoma Raceway, Sept. 16-18. The series’ GT/GTA/GT Cup presented by MOMO, and GTS classes will all be in action over the weekend.

Formula Car Challenge

The Formula Car Challenge (FCC) series will also host a double-header race weekend, with open-wheel racing in three classes. The three classes are on track at the same time, but compete for points and championships only within their respective classes. This will mark the fifth time the FCC will be paired with the Verizon IndyCar® Series in the Sonoma Valley. Past events have had 33-35 cars on the grid, making this one of the largest open-wheel races in the country.
