San Marino Motor Classic

San Marino show announces cancellation
San Marino show moved from June to August
Letter from the chairman:
The past three weeks has brought us incredible change and challenges that we could have never predicted or prepared for. Our decision to reschedule the 2020 San Marino Motor Classic was an easy decision given the time span between an open ended quarantine and our day. We hope that there will be a 60 day period between the resumption of public activities and August 22-23, 2020, the weekend of the 10th annual San Marino Motor Classic.
To quote P.T. Barnum, “The Show Must Go On.” And it will with your support and participation. I completely understand that it is difficult to submit an entry let alone write a check for an event that may not occur. It is equally difficult to produce an event without participants. I would like to give you the confidence to support the San Marino Motor Classic and take the chance of it not occurring with our promise to refund an monies tendered in the event that the show does not go on. We can not afford to process several hundred Exhibitor Applications, and Gala and VIP Reception reservations in a time span of a few weeks and also provide you with the quality of an event that you have come to expect. We truly need the lead time of about 30-45 days.
Therefore, I am asking you to take the leap, enter your car, make reservations for the Gala and the VIP Reception now, with the expectation that the event will occur over the weekend of August 22-23, 2020. But do so with the confidence that, in the event the San Marino Motor Classic cannot be produced you will have the option of receiving a full refund. With your support, we can better plan and prepare for the big weekend.
Thank you in advance for your confidence, support and friendship
The San Marino Motor Classic makes its mark as a popular multi-day collector car event and as a prolific fundraiser for non profits in this community outside Los Angeles.
