2014 RACE VIDEO
The Zoo City GP returns to the action-packed Zoo City Motorsports Park with a new date of Saturday July 11th, 2015. The weather may be hot, but the racing action promises to be even hotter! With new changes made to the motocross track for 2015, and big plans for the woods layout, this promises to be the best Zoo City GP yet!
The track features fast, flowing woods with some slower tight spots thrown in to make a little something for everybody. The motocross track makes for high-flying, fast paced action. However, if you’re not much of motocross rider, don’t sweat it. The Zoo City track offers up fun jumps for fast riders, but still very doable jumps for slower riders. (Bolt-On jumped everything on a KTM 530EXC dual-sport with a trials tire) The optional extreme sections add another challenging aspect to the race as well, which promises to make the Zoo City GP a must-race event.
