characteristics of that vehicle. Zoo City Motor Sports tries to maintain a suitable riding surface, however, there may be
holes, ridges and/or debris on the surface of the track. These obstacles are not intended to make the riding difficult, but
are to be considered as a natural condition the rider must be prepared to negotiate. Zoo City Motor Sports will make all efforts
to eliminate any foreseeable problems with the riding surface and to make necessary repairs at any time. It is up to the individual
rider to determine if the conditions are unsafe for their vehicle.
Zoo City Motor Sports will make all efforts to provide a safe and fun environment for all riders and
spectators, including removing anyone from the premises that shows any type of intent to cause harm or danger to any person

rider receiving a cash prize will be considered an A rider. Contingency isn't considered a cash prize.

It is Zoo City MX’s recommendation that If a rider has previously won a
championship in any series that rider should advance classes for next racing season.
During a calendar year if
a rider receives 4 wins or 5 second place finishes or any combination of the two the rider will be advanced at that time.
At the end of the year all D class riders who
have won a race will be advanced as of December 31. If you’re fast enough to win the D Class, then you need to start
the series in the C Class.
When you get
advanced, you don’t take your points with you.
The D Class is a beginner class and a chance to try racing to see if you like it. It isn’t a place to plan on
winning a championship.
