The Inverness Grand Prix Motorsport Festival is a two-day event that starts with a Friday night rock show, and Saturday is a festival with street races and entertainment. This City event zooms into its 5th year of hosting this rare street kart race that is sanctioned by the World Karting Association. Friday kicks off with a car cruise-in and free concert featuring regional favorite Stormbringer with a special guest, Robby Steinhardt, former member of the band Kansas. Stormbringer and Steinhardt will perform hits like “Carry on my Wayward Son” and “Dust in the Wind.” Stormbringer describes their style, “soaring leads, crisp four-part harmonies, thunderous drums, dramatic keyboards and crunching guitars.
Saturday entertainment highlight is the addition of the Powerskip Jumpers. They are described as “the acrobats from StarStudded Productions as they jump, skip, and leap through the air on powerskips!"
