Once the biggest motorcycle race on the West Coast, the legendary Catalina Grand Prix is set to make history, again.
California enthusiast Vinnie Mandzak is promoting the 2010 Catalina Island GP, as he has been since receiving authorization to produce “the most unique motorcycle race in 50 years.”
“Despite what a few naysayers may have said, there is no question in my mind that this race is happening this December,” Mandzak said in a press release. “Our plans are moving forward and I can’t wait to watch the first wave of racers roll off the starting line on Dec. 4!”
According to the press release, Mandzak has the cooperation from state and local government agencies and support of the Catalina Island business community. A total of 800 racers are expected to participate over two days of racing.
Race classifications and registration will be made available by mid-September at thecatalinegrandprix.com.
