TORONTO, ON // FEBRUARY 27, 2018 • Courtney Hansen was one of the show’s first celebrity guests during the inaugural Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers, in 2015.
During her appearance, the automotive TV personality made a huge impression on everyone at the show. By the time she headed back to her home in south Florida, all sides agreed that Courtney would have to come back to Canada’s biggest automotive and motorsports show at a future date.
The show’s organizers are very happy to announce that Courtney Hansen will be making her return appearance at this year’s Toronto Motorama show, signing autographs for – and taking pictures with – showgoers. She’ll also be taking part in on-stage discussion panels and awards presentations during the three-day automotive and racing extravaganza.
Motorama runs March 9, 10 & 11 at The International Centre, across from Toronto’s Pearson Airport.
Hansen’s automotive knowledge, outgoing personality and beautiful smile have made her a natural for roles on TV’s Overhaulin’, and hosting the PowerBlock / PowerNation TV shows. She’s also appeared on the cover of Hot Rod magazine, written automotive books and magazine columns, worked as a pit reporter at NASCAR races and served as a presenter at the year-end NASCAR banquet. She also has a long resume as a celebrity spokesperson for some of the industry’s most prominent companies.
And as she returns to Toronto to reconnect with Canadian car and racing fans at Motorama, Hansen is elated to promote her new show, Dream Ride, which will begin airing in July on History Channel as part of its Drive Block. The show features co-hosts Hansen and award-winning customizer Troy Ladd as they work to reconnect people with ‘the car that got away.’
“I’m so excited to be coming back to Toronto for the Motorama show,” said Courtney Hansen. “I had such a good time at the 2015 show that I really wanted to come back and do it again; I’m so glad it’s worked out. I’m also extremely excited about our new show Dream Ride, which we’ve been working on for a long time. So between meeting the fans, car owners, checking out the amazing cars, and taking part in discussion panels and awards presentations, and promoting Dream Ride… I can’t wait to be part of Motorama again!”
Born in Minnesota and raised at her family’s Brainerd Raceway, Hansen grew up at that and other racetracks. Her father, Jerry Hansen, won 27 SCCA championships during his career. Coming from that background, it’s not hard to see how the former fashion model ended up being an avid auto and racing enthusiast.
“The first year we put on the show, Courtney was one of our guest celebrities,” said co-promoter Greg MacPherson. “She knows cars and racing, which makes her a perfect fit for Motorama. On top of that, she’s one of the nicest, most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet. We’re honoured that she’s coming back and we know she’ll put a smile on the faces of everyone she comes in contact with.”
