Bud Ekins wins 1955 Catalina races on Triumph Trophy

The one thing Bud didn't win at Catalina was best looking machine. This beast was built for all go and not show. Some interesting details are the non-Triumph conical hub front wheel with 21" rim and the custom built high level exhaust pipes. Ekins led the race from start to finish with a 12 minute lead at the end ahead of a Ariel Huntmaster Twin and knocked off ten minutes from the previous track record.

All out success for the Triumph team with Cub and Terrier winners alongside the Ekins Trophy.
