Habe Barry bei seinen groÃŸen erfolgen auf der Rennstrecke gesehen.
Zum letzten mal 1998 in Assen.
Jetzt fÃ¤hrt mein Enkel Motorradrennen und hat fÃ¼r dieses Jahr die Startnummer 7 bekommen worÃ¼ber ich mich besonders gefreut habe.
GruÃŸ Wolfgang und Justin #7

I too remember with fondness watching Barry race round Olivers Mount at Scarborough in North Yorkshire in the early 1980's .
An absolute showman, sadly missed.
Great site! well done mate.
i loved watching Barry as a lad and he is the reason i got into bikes.
I am an artist and i have just finished a drawing of Barry, i would love to know what you think, here is a link to the work. http://www.redbubble.com/people/chris-cox/works/9851964-barry-sheene-mbe

I remember watching Barry when I was young racing around Scarbrough. I particularly remember seeing him come round the few straights so far in front it sounded like his engine had failed when in fact he was just slowing to let other catch up so he could make the race more interesting for the crowd. Fantastic to watch and a great loss way to early.
I watched Barry being 'bungy corded' (occa strapped) onto a bike at Oulton Park just weeks after Daytona, from memory he won one race and placed in the other. I remember admiring Stephanie seeing her in the pits at Mallory. Great family, perfect spouse, good people. The World is full of 'little men' and fake celebrities nowadays, but real heroes like Barry will never die. I've been writing the number 7 with a slash on it ever since - a small personal but tangible reminder of a him and the legacy he left to the m/c World and Racing in general. Hell of a guy, racing is bereft of larakins like Barry now, fck the nay-sayers, ride on Bazza, MCC

Great website thanks for some great memories. My all time favourite racer. Sadly missed by so many. I use to watch him at brands in the transatlantic trophy racing against kenny Roberts. Those were the days.
