Santa Catalina Island Company and the City of Avalon Announce Greatly Expanded Catalina Grand Prix for 2012
The Event Will Be a Weeklong Celebration With an Enhanced Line-Up of Activities
AVALON, Catalina Island, Calif. Santa Catalina Island Company (SCICo) has agreed to work with the City of Avalon to host the Catalina Grand Prix in December 2012, which will feature an expanded line-up of activities. Catalina Island is elevating the event to a new level, by extending the celebration to a week's worth of race-themed events and activities.

"SCICo felt that additional planning was needed in order to make the Grand Prix more unique to the Island and more special than if it was just an annual event on the normal race calendar," said Brad Wilson, Senior Vice President of Sales and Chief Marketing Officer for Santa Catalina Island Company. "SCICo will take an active role in securing sponsorships with the City as well as administration to enhance the overall visitor experience."

The City will continue to coordinate race operations, safety and logistics. Both entities will share in the permitting process and expenses over the next 18 months. The 2012 race week will include an array of activities designed to draw fans to the island for an extended stay. Additional activities planned include:

· One to two days of practice on the course
· Improved spectator areas
· Concourse of Classic Motorcycles
· Vintage Original “1950’s Grand Prix” Motorcycle Display
· VIP Food and Beverage Area
· Top name entertainment in the Casino Ballroom
· Parade of motorcycles
· Electric motorcycle exhibition race

Major sponsors are lining up to support next year's Grand Prix race, which will once again take place on SCICo land. Race organizers expect another sold out event, including top riders from around the world.

The Catalina Grand Prix is an historic race that took place through most of the 1950s and was brought back to life in 2010 for the first time in 52 years. The course, just under 7 miles, included a variety of terrains, including pavement, rocky cliffs and hills, winding turns and an exciting motocross sections. The 2012 Catalina Grand Prix will follow a similar course, and provide excitement for both the racers and spectators.

I wonder who they are going to have run it and lay out the course? It looks like they are cutting D37/Big 6 completely out of the deal.

It was all of the Big6 clubs together. Hundreds of people with tons of knowledge about putting on events like this. It was touch and go all weekend last year. Without the right organization it would be an absolute clusterfuck.

Yep, we spent over $1k. Two entries, i think we did 3 nites, wife/kid/me. Only paid ~$65/nite at that hotel up on the hill sorta overlooking the golf course (those rooms later were going for $180!). Sounds expensive but WOW it was such a cool event and the organization was unbelievable (the one guy who bitched and moaned on D37 site(?) about the bike drop-off & pick-up was out of line).
If we can do it again we'd also stay for Sunday nite, it was too rushed Sunday PM to make the boat.
Super cool event/vacation.
