Catalina Grand Prix 1951 - 1958

Nice article and pics covering the Grand Prix race that was held on Catalina Island in the 1950's. As expected, the race was dominated by the Brits...

1950's Catalina Grand Prix
Just to clarify, it was dominated by Americans riding British motorcycles. Cool article, that blog seems to have a bunch of cool old desert racing stuff on it.

And we were on the same ferry with Homer after the race, neat old guy. I had him do some motor work for me in the past.

Not in 2012 - hopefully island politics will allow the race in 2013!!!

The last I heard, the City of Avalon wanted to promote it, couldn't get their shit together.
Hopefully December of '13.

That's the same thing islanders have been telling me.
