2010 Red Bull Catalina GP with Kawasaki Photo Gallery
The 2011 KX250F was our bike of choice for the Catalina GP.
We shipped a Kawasaki KX250F to Catalina Island to see the glorious return of Grand Prix racing from the perspective of a racer.
A little softer on the suspension and a litter harder on the throttle would have produced better results.
This Yamaha replica bike was one of the finer vintage machines.
We'd like to know how much beer was sold over the weekend. The GP definitely had a party atmosphere.
Arriving by ferry is one of the cool aspects of racing on an island.
Registration and the media HQ was located at the Metropole Hotel.
We sat on the line for almost 45 minutes before the start of our race since gate pick was first-come-first-serve.
This custom Harley-Davidson was a crowd favorite.
Ingenuity goes hand-in-hand with vintage racing.
Red Bull fit right in with this custom go-kart.
Racers of all ages came out to enjoy Catalina.
We scored a room at the Hotel St. Lauren thanks to a last-minute cancellation. Be sure to book early next year!
Local island boys were excited to see the races.
Dimitri Coste came all the way from France to compete on a Triumph.
Racers were allowed to ride through town as part of a parade, but no racing.

Kawasaki shipped the KX250F with nothing more than a contact name on the numberplate. It all turned out fine with the help of District 37 members.
As a District 37 event, support was collected for the recently injured Justin Imhoff.
Race fans hang out around a campfire on Friday night.
The starting line overlooked the city of Avalon. Twelve races took off over two days.
Fuel could only be purchased at a specific staging area.
Travis Pastrana was a Red Bull rider who showed up. He blew up his engine while running third in the pro race on Sunday.
Racers will find traction wherever they can.
