Arrow 1957 Catalina Grand Prix Motorcycle Race

Vintage footage of the 1957 Catalina Grand Prix Motorcycle Race.
“The Catalina Grand Prix was one of the biggest races In the country at the time. It was a 100-mile event held on Santa Catalina Island of the coast of Los Angeles. The 10-mile course was a mixture of road, dirt fire trails, singletrack, and even went through a golf course. Cycle Magazine noted that many of the big AMA national riders skipped Catalina so as not to suffer embarrassment at the hands of Southern California scrambles riders who dominated the event.” –AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame
Narrator Gil Stratton was a Los Angeles sportscaster and actor who appeared in many films including "The Wild One". He was an avid motorcyclist.
