48th Annual HANFORD
Vintage Motorcycle Show & Swap Meet Saturday May 21, 2016
HANFORD EVENT LOCATION:
801 South 10th Ave Hanford, CA 93232
Hello everyone, at Classic Cycle Events we are excited for a great 2016, but first, I want to take a minute to address the situation at Irwindale Raceway, to clear up any confusion. Due to a potential construction project that is forecasted to begin later this year, the Irwindale Raceway has been unable to provide us with concrete dates for our El Camino event. As a result of this uncertainty, we will only have the 48th Annual Hanford Show & Swap this year. So if you have been putting off checking out Hanford, because El Camino was closer or easier, this year might be the reason to make the drive and check out the "Best" little meet in California.
I'd like to welcome back Nick Dounias, our favorite Hagerty's Classic Bike Insurance Agent. He will again be sponsoring the two Hagerty's Choice Awards, as he has so graciously done for us the past three years. Hagerty's Insurance remains the Classic Cycle Events Bike Insurance of choice.
VanTech returns as well with Bill VanTichelt judging and awarding a trophy in each of five classes, including: Best VanTech Classic Kit, Best VanTech as Raced, Best Custom & Best Offroad VanTech and the Best Restored VanTech. when registering mention you want to be in the VanTech Classes.
I also want to extend a warm welcome to Lucas Oil, they are our new co-sponsor of the Classic Cycle Events Motorcycle Show. Lucas will be offering special prizes to the class winners. Not only will our winners get a trophy, but some great motorcycle care products as well.
This years event promises to be the Best yet! So come on, make the drive and help us make Hanford 2016 the biggest, best show ever. It really is a great event and if you've never been, this is your year. There is a reason this show has been going strong for 48 years and counting and is California's oldest and longest running show & swap.
See you there!
