Mission Motorsports in Irvine, Calif., will celebrate its 30th anniversary on Saturday with a free event that will include more than 600 motorcycles, ATVs and watercraft.
Attendees will be able to meet racing legends and professional riding instructors.
“Riding is fun, pure and simple. We want to expand peoples’ knowledge of our sport, so we’re making this event 100 percent free,” Mission Motorsports owner Robin Matherson said. “The event is designed to provide an opportunity for riders and people who are considering riding to see, experience and learn about the rider’s world. We’ll have over 600 vehicles, and the latest in safety and riding equipment and professional riding instructors here on site. Our displays are interactive and allow children and adults to grab the handlebars and sit on these vehicles or try on cool gear and talk with the experts.”
Professional instructors from the Motorcycle Safety Foundation’s Saddleback Rider Training and MotoVentures will be at the store to discuss training for children and adults, and how riders can be better prepared.
The California State Rangers and U.S. Forestry Service will be on site with displays, live animals and information about where to ride and camp. Racers Broc Glover and Bruce Penhall and 16-year-old road racing phenom Andre Ochs, winner of Daytona and the Horizon Award in 2012, will be on hand to talk about racing at all levels.
Families involved in riding and racing will be available to meet and talk with parents interested in knowing more about the sport and how they might get involved.
Additionally, there will be a kid zone, handmade tacos and drinks, 30 percent off all parts & accessories and incentives on vehicles. Thousands of dollars in prizes will be given away from noon-6 p.m. and hundreds of giveaway items will be available.
Factory reps from more than 15 vehicle and product lines will be available.
