Gravity Fest Re-Launches in Madison County

Gravity Fest Re-Launches in Madison County

New organizer brings downhill back to Munnsville after multi-year hiatus

Gravity Fest, one of the original and most beloved gravity sports events in the world, returns to Munnsville and Madison County Sept. 15 and 16. Gravity Fest will be an International Downhill Federation World Qualifier Series event and feature timed qualifiers, two days of freeriding and exciting Sunday racing on an excellent track.

Originated in 2002 on Rocks Road in Eaton, it soon after moved to East Hill Road in Munnsville. It has remained ever since. 16 years since its founding, the event has run 10 times with 2 hiatuses. It ran most recently in 2015, and was on ice until Emgee Events decided to re-launch the event, with the blessing of previous organizers Dr. No Racing and the Munnsville American Legion Post 54.

The decision to bring back Gravity Fest was easy: It’s the ideal “intermediate-plus” racetrack, with perfect pavement, 50mph top end speeds, smooth sweepers and the infamous “Crash Corner” right hairpin, an ideal spectator zone.

Emgee Events aims to offer a family-friendly, safe and enjoyable race experience for everybody involved, and spectators are warmly welcomed. It is free to spectate, and there will be on-site instructions for parking, with food and drinks and event merchandise available for sale. Top racers from around the world are registering each day for this IDF World Cup Qualifier event. To learn more about the race and freeride, check out the official promo video:
