Yet there is a thread on Johnny Campbells race on D37 and thats all groovy. And the Big 6 is now 8 races strong. So Cal was voted in with their Anza race.

I stand corrected on the big 6 now being the big 8. Still wondering about the Vinnie connection..........

I havent heard anything. It seems they are keeping it pretty much on the down-low at least for now.

There is actually a thread on the D37 website that is locked and asks people not to gossip about it.

That ... doesn't make any sense. I got some BOGO free tickets for the catalina flyer that expire on the 9th. I have six total and I won't likely use more than 2. I can't be sure yet, but as we get closer to the mysterious race I'll post again, but for now, just FYI.

I heard a rumor that there was a pending lawsuit. I suspect that, even though the entire race was on Avalon City property, the Catalina Conservancy had or is still having a fit over the whole deal.

It was a rumor and the rest is my opinion only.

I sure hope it does! It was such a thrill to race over there and it seemed that everyone we came into contact with had a blast.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were lawsuits - all you need is one guy with an agenda to file. Im just keeping my fingers crossed for dec and starting to practice on MX tracks....

I know a guy that will settle the lawsuit for a case of beer.

Just put my deposit down for the same house we rented for the last race. The rental company is giving a 10% discount if you tell them you are racing! Rumor is that this year they would like to have a practice day Thursday and NOVICE class races on Friday.

And i wonder what the entry limit is ? whats the criteria to make it in ? i figure if D37 is out of it it will probably be first come first served ?

Which rental company are you dealing with?

Sure would love to race Catalina this year. Wish the organizers would start providing some info...

I used Catalina Vacation Rentals. I've been told that the rental brokers will refund deposit if race doesn't go through (you should check that for yourself).


I'm told the promoters have been up to their armpits in alligators with more than just this race. Nothing is set in stone yet. But geez, its still almost 6 months away.

Thanks SB.

Yes, it is a long ways off. Just would like confirmation that it will indeed occur. Otherwise, I may make plans to head to Baja instead. I'll probably just make reservations on Catalina, and hope for the best. Guess I can always cancel if the race is a no-go...

My father raced Catalina in either '57 or '58. Would be neat to do the same race!
