#1 MOTOFEST RULE - HAVE FUN !! 
Event management team reserves the right to punish anyone that is seen not having fun.  Racing dirt bikes is fun ! Gathering with friends and family on a holiday weekend is fun ! MotoFest was created with FUN as the primary goal. 

What is MotoFest ?  
Carolina MotoFest is a completely unique event that combines the best of Grand Prix Motocross, Sprint Enduro and EnduroCross racing with lot’s of entertainment in the evening that will keep the whole family excited to be there. 
Of course the racing is the primary feature and you won’t find an event anywhere in the world with a greater variety of moto fun. The weekend starts early on Friday with riding schools that will feature some of the best riders and trainers in the country providing techniques, tips and lines to you.  One Grand Champion per class will be crowned at the end of 3 days of racing. You can race just one event but to be in the hunt for the Grand Championship you have to race them all. 

Sprint Enduro –  
Saturday the racing begins with Sprint Enduro. The idea behind Sprint Enduro is to keep the challenge of enduro racing without the 3 hour grind. 2 - 20 minute races per class through NCMP’s beautiful and challenging terrain. The course will have tight single track, rocks, water and flowing open trails combined with a grass track in the open meadow.  Each class will race 2 - 20 minute races with the winner being the racer with the best combined finish score.  
There will be no practice so please be sure to check out the course in advance of racing.

Grand Prix Motocross 
Sunday is GPMX day. The race course will be old school MX. More natural terrain….less death defying jumps. Up hills, down hills, off cambers and a lot of challenge if you are riding fast. Long motos will keep you on the track and testing your stamina.  Each class will race 1 – 40 minute moto.  Practice will consist of 2 laps the morning before racing. We encourage everyone to join us for the Friday practice day and check out the course on foot the day before. 

EnduroCross  
Monday will challenge the best riders with an EnduroCross course that will feature all the tough obstacles you have seen in the AMA EnduroCross series and a few that you haven’t seen before.  Even the greats are challenged by an EnduroCross track. Each class will race 2 - 10 minute races.  There will be a practice session for each class in the morning. If you think 10 minutes seems like a short race we bet you will change your mind after practice. 

Registration  
Online registration will begin on JUNE 29, 2018. Registration can be done through the REGISTRATION link at  www.carolinamotofest.com 
We encourage everyone to try all 3 disciplines of racing but you can race just one if you choose.
