On Sunday, the 5th Annual ObtainiumCup Rally takes over Mare Island. Mutant, people-powered, homemade vehicles will race up and down the track, dodging zombies, flying monkeys, mad hatters, robots, and more. It’s free to watch the rally, but if you want to submit your own vehicle, you’ll need to pay an entry fee. The rally starts at 11 a.m. on Sunday, beginning at Alden Park, located at 8th & Walnut Streets on Mare Island in Vallejo. If you’re interested in registering, head to obtainiumworks.net.
