2016 / 2017 El Camino
Fall is upon us, the end of the year is near, September has come and gone and we all missed our annual El Camino Motorcycle Show & Swap. We want to be sure that everyone understands why we made the decision to cancel this year's event. Hopefully everyone knows by now that Irwindale Raceway is living on borrowed time, with the proposed Outlet Mall project looming in the future. The great staff at the raceway, has been trying to accommodate us, but have been unable to give us a date that would work to enable us to carry on the tradition of El Camino. I made the choice to try to hold the event a little later in Sept. or in Oct in an effort to get beyond the heat of the past three years. Unfortunately, we were unable to come to a date that worked for the speedway and allowed us enough time to properly promote the event. In addition, the Raceway hasn't been able to give us a consistent date, that we were hoping for.
We are currently working on securing a new venue to host our long standing tradition. The El Camino faithful will recall the event has skipped a few years in it's 40 year history and has always come back. We at CCE have shown our commitment to keeping the past 8 years and 15 events growing and continuing.
Our corporate sponsor's are supportive of our new direction and are doing their part to ensure that all of us, once again get to enjoy the great classic motorcycle event we have come to expect for vendors, show participants and spectators alike.
As soon as we know our new location and dates, we will post the info right here on our web site. So please be on the lookout for our new location for 2017.
The 49th Annual Hanford Motorcycle Show and Swap, held at the same location for more than 25 years will be May 20th, 2017. Mark your calendar and make your plans to join us in 2017.
Stay tuned to the web site as when we secure our new venue you will hear about it here first. The mailing goes out in March of 2017, giving all of you time to make plans to make 2017 the Best Year yet!
Thanks from all of us at Classic Cycle Events
