Santa Catalina Grand Prix

Inspirerd by the Isle of Man TT, the Catalina Grand Prix was very popular but only lasted between 1951 and 1958. More than 300 racers and 7000 fans came to Santa Catalina by barge doubling the islands population. It was not a popular event with locals as facilities on the island could not cope with the invasion. It was the first race in which a piano manufacturer Yamaha, entered a motorcycle. In most years of the Catalina Grand Prix BSA motorcycles where in the top five.
Ten laps of varying road conditions on the dangerous ten mile course put the emphasis on handling, therefore most of the bikes where scramblers. Currently most of Catalina is a nature reserve but there are plans to run the event again in 2010. It would be the coolest grand prix. Good luck.
