RIDGE MOTORSPORTS PARK SET TO HOST MOTOAMERICA IN 2020
Friday, November 08, 2019
MotoAmerica is thrilled to announce that the 2020 MotoAmerica Series will for the first time feature a round in the Pacific Northwest, with the three-day event set to take place at the Ridge Motorsports Park, which is located southwest of Seattle, Washington, June 26-28.
The Ridge Motorsports Park racetrack was designed by Steve Crawford, the man who also designed Thunderhill Raceway Park in Northern California and it’s nestled in a truly picturesque portion of Washington State with views of Mt. Rainier and Mt. St. Helens. The circuit blend with its surroundings and features 16 turns with over 300 feet of elevation, including a 50-foot plunge down the Ridge Complex. The Ridge opened in 2011 but has recently undergone upgrades to allow it to host large spectator events, such as MotoAmerica.
The track is centrally located in Shelton, Washington, roughly 90 miles from Seattle, 140 miles from Portland, Oregon and 60 miles from Tacoma, Washington in Mason County. Having a round at The Ridge will also please MotoAmerica’s Canadian fans as it is just a four-hour drive down the I-5 from Vancouver, British Columbia.
