Sheene Anniversary

Post by MellowYellow » Jan 4th, '19, 20:28



One of Britain’s greatest motorcycle racers, the legendary Barry Sheene, will be commemorated at the West Country’s biggest motorcycle race meeting, the Castle Combe Grand National, which takes place at the Wiltshire track on Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September 2019. Sheene, who went on to win the 1976 and 1977 500cc World Championship, took victory at Castle Combe aboard his Bultaco back in 1969, so plans are afoot to celebrate his 50-year association with the circuit as well as his extraordinary career with displays and parades exclusively to do with Barry and his bikes over the years. As well as his closest friend Steve Parrish, who is hoping to return to Castle Combe after being a guest of honour at this year’s prestigious event, various members of Barry’s family along with colleagues, friends and indeed rivals hope to attend this unique celebration, with lots of initial interest being shown. In addition to the Sheene commemorations, there will be the usual packed programme of racing organised by NG Road Racing Club and featuring a number of major championships over the weekend. With some of the best club race action in the country which always leads to packed grids, Race Director Steve Bostock and his team will once again deliver an end of summer feast which last year included some fantastic racing over the weekend.

I would have liked to be there, but unfortunately I'm in Corfu that week. Hope you enjoy.
